FAYETTEVILLE, GA (CBS46) -

Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville has hosted some of the most recognized movies in the film industry, but none of them had a production budget worth $1 billion.

In an interview with the Atlanta Business Journal, Chick-fil-A CEO and Pinewood Atlanta Studios co-owner Dan Kathy spoke about the studio's newest film.

"We now have on the lot down there now the largest film production ever with a $1 billion budget," Cathy said.

Athough Kathy did not name the film, its budget is only $31 million less than the previous three top budgeted films combined, according to The Numbers. They include "Avatar" with $425 million, "Star Wars Ep. VII: The Force Awakens" with $306 million, and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" with $300 million.

Pinewood Atlanta Studios has 18 stages and some of the movies filmed there include, "Ant-Man," "Captain America: Civil War," and " Guardians of the Galaxy 2."
