“Baby Driver,” starring Ansel Elgort in the driver’s-seat role along with Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Lily James, Jon Bernthal and Eiza González, continues filming at a former bank branch on Ashford Dunwoody Road near Perimeter Mall today. Production folks warned ahead of time of possible traffic delays as a result but so far Dunwoody Police Department officers providing security and traffic direction have kept things moving.

Scenes filmed Thursday include this “shootout,” which was simulated, of course. The production folks spent a great deal of time setting up this shot and made sure to alert area residents early and often that the gunfire was fake.
