Identity Thief (2013)

The 2013 comedy “Identity Thief,” starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, was filmed primarily in the Atlanta, Georgia area.  Late in the film, the two stay at The Georgian Terrace in Midtown Atlanta, which is seen mostly from interior views.  The hotel was also featured in another Jason Bateman film; 2011’s “The Change-Up.”  However, the building’s most well-known film connection is having hosted a gala following the 1939 premiere of “Gone with the Wind.”

At a side entrance to the hotel, you’ll find this marker from the Georgia Film Commission, noting the hotel’s connection to the film.  These markers can be found at various filming locations all across Georgia.

The team sets up a new Ghostbusters headquarters above Zhu’s Authentic Hong Kong Food.  The real restaurant is actually Kaze Shabu Shabu.  The production added a garage on the left side of the building to house the Ecto-1 car.  At the real location, the garage space is just an additional area of the parking lot.
