Zombies back in Newnan Friday


More scenes for AMC's "The Walking Dead" were supposed to be filmed in Newnan on Aug. 9-10, but rain put a damper on things. The filming company plans to be back in downtown Newnan at Caldwell Tanks late Friday -- and area residents may hear simulated gunfire.

The good news is last Friday’s rain prevented zombies from overtaking downtown Newnan.
It’s thought to be something to do with their genetic makeup and their kinship with the Wicked Witch of the West — that whole “I’m melting, I’m melting” thing.
The bad news is reconnaissance maps show a large influx of zombies slowly making their way back to downtown Newnan.

Actually, simulated gunfire is expected with the return of film crews for a popular cable television show late Friday in downtown Newnan, say city officials.
Stalwart Films LLC will be filming scenes for the AMC television series “The Walking Dead” at the Caldwell Tanks manufacturing facility. Scenes were filmed several weeks ago at the location, between the metal shop buildings. Large lighting equipment was brought in for the filming.
Off-duty Newnan Police Department officers will be on hand during the filming Friday.
Anyone with questions about the plans for simulated gunfire may call the Stalwart Films Locations Department at 678-723-1000.
