GLASGWEGIANS are becoming used to major film productions heading to their city – but the magic won't have worn off yet.

A new spin-off of the Fast and the Furious, starring Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Jason Statham, will be filming there this month.

You'll be able to find the stars on city centre streets including George Square, Ingram Street and St Vincent Street.

And with a secondary film unit of 200 crew, it'll bring a big boost to the local economy.

Residents and businesses are being given information on the production, with some road closures set to be in place.

So, where and when will filming be taking place?

  • Wednesday 24th October – John Street, George Street, Cochrane Street, Ingram Street
  • Thursday 25th October – John Street, George Street, Cochrane Street, Ingram Street
  • Friday 26th October – Junction of South Frederick Street, George Square and Cochrane Street
  • Saturday 27th October – Under M8 and footbridge
  • Sunday 28th October – From Montrose Street to West Campbell Street

Councillor David McDonald, depute Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “We will soon welcome this film shoot to the city centre, testament to the continued pulling power of Glasgow in attracting major productions.  Council officers are working closely with the production to make sure that filming goes as smoothly as possible while minimising any impact on the daily life of residents and businesses. 

"This will be a spectacular production that showcases Glasgow as a fantastic filming location.”

The Glasgow Film Office, which works to attract productions to the city, has generated around £300 million for the city's economy since it was established in 1997.

Films which have been shot in Glasgow include World War Z, Fast & Furious 6, Outlaw King and The Wife, and television productions to do so include Outlander, Shetland and The Cry.
