NEWS NEARBY: 'Parental Guidance' Includes Atlanta Area Scenes; Regal Buys Gwinnett Cinema

News from Patch sites in the area.

Local audiences may recognize some familiar suburban Atlanta places in "Parental Guidance," opening Christmas Day 2012 and starring Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei.

Filmed in the Atlanta area, crews converged on Johns Creek's Ocee Park around Halloween last year for some pivotal Little League baseball scenes.

Casting directors didn't have to look far for baseball players – they used members from the Ocee Athletic Association teams as extras.

A member of the Georgia Production Partnership, the city regularly supplies photos showing various facilities and attractions.

The movie was also shot in Alpharetta, Roswell and various other places in the metro area.
