UPDATE: Is The Rock coming to Glasgow? Rumours swirl as major action film shoots in city. Read more here.

GLASGOW is fast-becoming the go-to location for filmmakers and TV shows - and the city is to welcome yet another major production.

Universal Pictures will be filming on a number of City Centre streets, including George Square and St Vincent Street with a secondary film unit of 200 crew.

It is understood the action film may involve car chases in the City Centre.

The name of the film has not yet been released.

As would be expected, it is anticipated the production will have a significant impact to the city’s economy.

Information on the production is being given to local residents and businesses.

Councillor David McDonald, depute leader of Glasgow City Council, described how the project is another example of the confidence the industry has in Glasgow’s ability to host shoots of this size.

He added: “The council’s Glasgow Film Office has been working closely with the production to identify locations and make sure the shoot goes as smoothly as possible, while minimising the impact on the daily life of the city.

“Major productions such as this bring a great boost to the local economy.

“Glasgow loves cinema, and it’s good to know we will see the streets of the city shown all over the world when this film is released.”

On Tuesday, a Glasgow City Council committee noted a report that the council’s Glasgow Film Office had attracted and assisted film, broadcast and advertising productions that had generated around £300 million for the city’s economy since it was established in 1997.

Some of these productions included the films World War Z - starring Brad Pitt - Fast & Furious 6, Outlaw King - starring Chris Pine - and the recently-released The Wife starring Glenn Close.

TV productions Outlander, Shetland and The Cry have all recently been filmed in Glasgow too.
