Shoot will involve around 250 local and out of town crew members and is set to last for a few weeks.

Production on the latest Fast And Furious instalment is set to take place in Glasgow city centre next week from Aug 29.

The Fast And Furious 6 shoot, which is set to last a few weeks and will involve around 250 local and out of town crew members, will be done by the film’s second unit, with none of the film’s leading cast involved. Shooting will take place at night and will lead to a number of road closures around Broomielaw, Cadogan Street, Wellington Street and a number of other nearby streets, from this Saturday (25).

Glasgow Film Office has been working with the production to ensure that arrangements were in place with the relevant council departments and other public bodies, allowing filming to take place with the minimum of disruption to the city.

Bailie Liz Cameron [pictured], Executive Member for Jobs and the Economy at Glasgow City Council, commented: “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.”
