Stunt Actors Zip Through Downtown Atlanta for 'Insurgent'

June 20, 2014 at 2:33 PM | by | ()

No, the city of Atlanta isn't installing a new zip line attraction, it's just the latest movie set to take over downtown.

The Divergent sequel, Insurgent, has set up zip lines that connect to several rooftops across downtown Atlanta - including The Peachtree Center - for filming taking place this week.

Stunt people have been stopping traffic as they practice coasting from building to building. It's not exactly a welcome sight for any acrophobes watching below!

According to signs posted along Peachtree St, filming is expected to continue through June 24.

Insurgent, starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Ansel Elgort, hits theaters March 20, 2015.

where was that photo taken

That looks for all the world to me like the Chicago downtown skyline with the dark building with twin white spires toward the left being the Willis (nee Sears) Tower. The view appears to be from south of downtown. Unless Atlanta has cloned the Willis Tower.

I was right

Put that picture into Google images and came up with photos from the first Divergent movie. The picture is indeed from the Chicago filming. Jaunted photo editor: why isn't this a picture that goes with the article???
