Many movies and television shows have been filmed in Atlanta, such as Stranger Things, The Hunger Games and Teen Wolf. Now, who knew there is a production in a neighborhood nearby.

The First Man, based on James R. Hansen’s book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong, is being filmed in the Saddle Creek neighborhood in Roswell. The movie, directed by Damien Chazelle, takes place during the 1960s and spotlights the life of the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong, who is played by Ryan Gosling. Gosling and Chazelle previously worked together on the Academy Award and Golden Globe winning movie La La Land.

The production company chose Saddle Creek because “it best represented the era of the film,” according to the City of Roswell’s event director, Chris Ward. The “houses and neighborhood setting worked well for the shoot.”

The residents are aware of the filming and “the production company has been very communicative with the neighbors,” explains Ward. As of now, there are no reports of complaints from the residents. Unfortunately, “there is really no ‘meet and greet’ of cast members,” says Ward, “we [City of Roswell] do not encourage people trying to get on set.”

According to IMDB.com, the movie will be released on October 11, 2018.
