As of midnight tonight, the streets of Glasgow city centre will once again be zombie-free as filming wraps on the upcoming Hollywood blockbuster World War Z. For the last fortnight the Scottish city has played host to the film’s star Brad Pitt along with well over 1000 cast and crew members during filming of some thrilling action scenes for the post-apocalyptic zombie movie.
Crowds of people have gathered around the set each day hoping for a wee glimpse of Brad and have been amazed to see the U.S-style street signs, traffic lights and police cars as the movie’s set department transformed parts of central Glasgow into downtown Philadelphia. Visitors to the set have reported watching the filming of several exciting scenes including actors in full make-up and costume roaming the streets as terrifying zombies.
The movie, which is based on the novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks, is due to be released in 2012. You can also be a Zombie with this amazing Zombie Fancy Dress Costume.
