Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal Filming in Tucker

Another Hollywood production comes to town.

A movie called "Prisoners" is shooting scenes this week at an industrial complex in Tucker.

Starring in the kidnapping drama are Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Maria Bello, Terrence Howard, and Melissa Leo, among others.

The scenes shooting locally are set in the fictional city of Conyers, Pennsylvania. When Patch visited the set on Tuesday afternoon, actors and crew were working on a scene in which a young couple walks out the front entrance of a police station and is accosted by press photographers.

Gyllenhaal plays the role of Detective Loki, who follows the couple out of the building. Jackman's character is Keeler Dover, seen sitting in a pick-up truck near the station.

"Prisoners," which originally included Leonardo DiCaprio in the cast, is set to be released in September.

I work in an office immediately across N Royal Atlanta Dr from the filming location. The production company has been here about a week now. Every once in a while I peek my head out our front door and catch a scene being shot, such as the one described above. Pretty cool.

They could wait a day or two and probably get some of our bad actors on film or maybe security cameras
