PARTS of the centre of Glasgow will be closed off later this month as the city once again becomes a film set for a big budget US movie.

A crew of around 200 will be in the city to film scenes for Hobbs and Shaw, a Fast & Furious spin-off starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham.

Idris Elba and Vanessa Kirby are also listed among the cast for the David Leitch-directed film but it is not known who will be involved in the Glasgow scenes.

Filming will take place from October 24-28. Glasgow City Council said residents and businesses have been informed about the Universal Pictures production, which it believes will have a “significant impact” on the city’s economy.

John Street, George Street, Cochrane Street and Ingram Street will be closed for filming on Wednesday and Thursday, October 24 and 25. Filming will move to the junction of South Frederick Street, George Square and Cochrane Street on the Friday, beneath the M8 on the Saturday and on Montrose Street to West Campbell Street on the Sunday.

Scenes for World War Z (pictured) and Fast & Furious 6 were filmed in similar locations.
