Jennifer Lopez/Cameron Diaz new movie turns Atlanta into Ethiopia for a day

by yeEthiopiaforums

The Cameron Diaz-Jennifer Lopez movie “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” has been filming at Piedmont Park, Little Five Points and at Smith’s Olde Bar.

Recently the movie, also starring Chris Rock, Chace Crawford and Anna Kendrick, took over Charlie Brown airport for some scenes.

Our on-set spy got us a few photos of the airport (officially called Fulton County Airport at Brown Field) on the day the filming took place there.

The scenes filmed there are set in Ethiopia. (Casting calls also have sought Ethiopian extras.) In one photo you’ll notice the airplane that is parked outside the airport says Trans Ethiopia.

Also, you’ll notice that the Ethiopian flag is flying outside the front of the airport (we’re assuming the camera angle will crop out the Fulton County Airport sign).

The movie, compared to “Love, Actually” for its ensemble format, follows a number of different couples who are becoming parents for the first time. (Someone’s adopting a baby from Ethiopia, it sounds like!)

Extras casting calls have sought moms with newborns and expectant moms.

We’re also told that parts of the film take place during winter, and so cast members have been bundled up in heavy coats during this recent spell of 90 degree-plus days.
