2011 Project365 (day230)

18th August 2011

The centre of Glasgow (specifically George Square and surrounds) has been brought to a bit of a standstill this week and the next couple of weeks as Brangelina are in town – Brad Pitt is filming a zombie movie, “World War Z”, and George Square has been turned into Philadelphia for the duration. I took quite a few pictures this evening – there’s a set of them all on flickr here. Some buildings have been transformed (the court house is particularly effective) and the street signs added. There was quite a buzz around there, though the man himself was nowhere to be seen.

There’s been plenty of talk in the local media as to whether the film is “World War Zee” or “World War Zed”. And plenty of wits have already pointed out that if they wanted to film the zombie apocalypse they could have saved a lot of money and just filmed Sauchiehall Street on a Friday night.

  1. These are great photos. They’ve gone to such a lot of trouble to turn the area into Philadelphia you wonder if it wouldn’t have been simpler for them just to film it in Philadelphia!!
