ATLANTA (AP) - Part of downtown Atlanta has been transformed into a movie set designed to look like New York City as it appeared more than three decades ago.
Filming this week of a sequel for the 2004 film "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" features vintage New York taxi cabs, graffiti-painted walls and fake storefronts along Peachtree Street.
The filming in the city's central business district was expected to continue on Friday.
On Thursday in Woodruff Park, more than a dozen actors armed with baseball bats and hockey sticks filmed a large brawl reminiscent of the 1979 film "The Warriors."
A newsstand set up on Peachtree Street includes copies of old Life magazines and New York Daily News editions headlines from 1980.
The film's stars include Will Ferrell and Steve Carell.
