Universal Pictures to film on a number of Glasgow city centre streets soon

Glasgow is to welcome yet another major film production to the city from 24 October, when a Universal Pictures production will film on a number of city centre streets including George Square, Ingram Street and St Vincent Street.

The size of the production – which will consist of a secondary film unit of 200 crew – means that the production will have a significant impact on the city’s economy.

 

Information on the production is being given to local residents and businesses.  Filming some of the film’s scenes means that some road closures will be necessary.  Scenes will be shot at the following locations on the following days:

 

  • 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 council’s Glasgow Film Office, working with officers across the council and other partner organisations, has attracted and assisted film, broadcast and advertising productions that have generated around £300million for the city’s economy since it was established in 1997.  Just some of these productions included the films World War ZFast & Furious 6Outlaw King, and the recently-released The Wife, and television productions OutlanderShetland and The Cry.
