The Decatur Minute alerts residents that the upcoming film “Triple Nine” will be filming on Kings Highway this week…
The City of Decatur has issued a film permit to 999 Productions, LLC for filming of a project titled TRIPLE NINE to take place in the 200 block of Kings Highway in the evening and overnight hours beginning today through Friday morning.
Stretches of Ansley Street and Kings Highway will also be used for filming some neighborhood driving shots. To safely accommodate filming, Decatur Police will be directing traffic with stoppages lasting no longer than 3 minutes. Most of this work will be done in the evening and through the night until 8am on July 12.
The production company realizes they are guests in the neighborhood and the cast and crew will treat it with the utmost respect. In general, there will be some noise due to special effects associated with filming such as bright lights and engine noises. Also, the city has given permission to have the street lights turned off during the filming. Additional officers will be present to keep the area safe and secure.
The movie stars Aaron Paul, Michael B. Jordan, Norman Reedus, Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Michael Pena, Teresa Palmer, Woody Harrelson, and Gal Gado, among others. The filming site “On Location Vacations” calls “Triple Nine” one of the most anticipated shoots of the summer.
IMDB summarizes the film’s plot thusly…
A group of corrupt police officers are blackmailed into pulling off a seemingly impossible heist. They plot the murder of a rookie police officer in order to orchestrate a “999”, code for ‘officer down’, to pull off the heist across town.

Melissa sends in this photo of a sign and set as Goosebumps - starring Jack Black and Amy Ryan – films in the Decatur Cemetery today. The sign indicates that filming took place yesterday and will continue through today.
Perhaps this is related to all the trucks in Suburban Plaza the last couple of days. Kathy sent in this photo yesterday…
Bryan sends in this photo of the transformation of Yogurt Tap into “brain freeze” on Church Street yesterday as crews filming scenes for the upcoming drama series “Finding Carter“, according to the City’s Katie Abel.
UPDATE: The City’s Katie Abel tells us that it was actually filming of CW’s “The Originals” on Church Street yesterday, not Vampire Diaries as first reported.
Bill sends in this photo from along Church Street in Decatur of more Vampire Diaries filming taking place this morning. Bill writes…
Trucks were marked Bonanza Productions and there were actors playing FBI agents. Looked like a funeral scene.
