CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - It was another day in movie paradise.  Thursday crews were back at it again, setting scenes for "Water for Elephants".

Channel 3 has learned Robert Pattinson will arrive in North Georgia this weekend. 

As we were first to report on Wednesday, a local family will rent their home to the movie studio for the scenes.

The actors haven't even arrived yet, but Robert Pattinson could greet the rising sun Friday in Chickamauga, and possibly head to Chattanooga.

Thursday we watched tons of fans take pictures and get a glimpse of the home where Pattinson will leave his mark on North Georgia.  From the antique cars, to the dated laundry hanging from clothes pins, a set for "Water for Elephants" is getting closer to completion in Chickamauga, Georgia.

The movie, set in the 1930s, will star Reece Witherspoon and Hollywood heart-throb Robert Pattinson.

"I love him, and my daughter-in-law really loves him. She is going to be mad if I see him and she doesn't," Jane Martin says.

From the two lane road in Chickamauga fans could see bicycles, props, antique furniture on the front porch and even curtains through the windows where Pattinson could soon look out.

Pictures were snapped and video was shot by "Edward" fans Thursday, hoping to catch a moment in movie history.

"I can't imagine more people not wanting to come out and film, its just amazing they found this place in the middle of no where," Debbie Angermeier says.

From Chickamauga to Chattanooga we spotted movie mania everywhere.

The Chattanooga Railroad Museum hosted many of the films crews Thursday as they scoped out rail cars, and the Sheraton Read House had trucks parked outside the building with what looked like costumes for the film.

While many of the crews are trying to keep much of the filming a secret, the thought of Robert Pattinson coming to the Tennessee Valley has women of all ages drooling a little bit.

"I think this is just the coolest thing ever! It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for something to happen like this," Kim Wallin says.

Filming could start as early as Friday in Chickamauga. We checked out Pattinson's official fan website and it said filming in LA wrapped up Wednesday, and he was headed to Chickamauga, Georgia.

Security will be very tight.

We do want to point out the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum will be closed on Monday and Tuesday for what might be filming.
