RUMOURS are abound that The Rock may be coming to Glasgow to film a major new action movie.

As already reported by the Evening Times, Universal Pictures are set to filming on a number of City Centre streets, including George Square and St Vincent Street with a secondary film unit of 200 crew.

Now, it’s emerged actor Dwayne Johnson has arrived in the UK to film Hobbs & Shaw.

Evening Times:
Jason Statham is also in the film

A spinoff of The Fate of the Furious focuses on 46-year-old Johnson’s US Diplomatic Security Agent, Luke Hobbs, forming an unlikely alliance with Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw.

“This one’s been years in the making.

“Motivated to build the franchise out to deliver something fresh, new, fun and bad ass for the fans.

“Let’s roll.”

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

REVEALED: How much Glasgow has reeled in from film-making

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.”
