Film production sets up in Glasgow

FILMING for the latest production to come to Glasgow begins next week.

The city is to be used as a location for Fast and Furious 6, with road closures around Broomielaw, Cadogan and Wellington Streets in place since yesterday.

Shooting by the secondary film unit begins on Wednesday (August 29), working at night – which means that none of the lead cast members will be there.

The production will, however, involve 250 local and out of town crew members over the next few weeks, and nearby residents have been informed of the restrictions in place.

Bailie Liz Cameron, executive member for jobs and the economy at Glasgow city council, said: “It’s great that yet another major film is being made in Glasgow, further proof of our status as the UK’s most film-friendly city.

“I’m sure that people in Glasgow will be looking forward to seeing how our streets look in this movie, as they do in so many other films”.
