Brad Pitt filming in Glasgow

I cannot bare (bear?) the man.

He is making a film in Glasgow Scotland, which is supposed to be set in Philadelphia. Yes and it's another war movie! Aren't there any other subjects to film?

The poor Glaswegians have to put up with their city being messed around,

Why can't they make the film in Philadelphia? Maybe Glasgow has more degenerate areas, but there was no rioting there! Or was there?

Not only is Brad Pitt one of the greatest acting talents of our era, but World War Z is a fantastic story. It will likely be an awesome film, so stop being such a misery guts.

Re: Brad Pitt filming in Glasgow

It's about zombies!

EDIT: Better than that, it looks like the book upon which it is based was inspired by Studs Terkel's The Good War.

Bloody zombies! Haven't we got enough of them in real life without endless books and films too?
Same goes for vampires. Too many blood-suckers to deal with already

I suppose one could argue that Gulliver's Travels is just another book about pixies and giants...

Zombies, is it? Edinburgh would have been a much better choice then - they wouldn't have needed to hire extras, just use the folk on their normal business

Brad Pitt will be an amazing zombie. He already played one in Meet Joe Black.

Re: Brad Pitt filming in Glasgow

Perhaps my old man could be an 'extra'.
He'd make a good zombie without having to act.

Re: Brad Pitt filming in Glasgow

They're filming an adaptation of World War Z, great book and if the movie is half as good it will be a great time. Plus, it's directed by Swissie Marc Forster.

not so poor after the filming!! I think its bringing 2 million to the Glasgow economy!!

I'm from philly and love Glasgow - definitely similarities.

I have lots of friends camping out at George Square to watch the filming - they are loving it.

Re: Brad Pitt filming in Glasgow

Well that is good news. Are they handing out 10 notes to all the people whom are inconvenienced, or does the 2 million go to the city?

Yes I am a miserable git when I read about la petite Brad Pitt.

[QUOTE=Ittigen;1308349]I cannot bare (bear?) the man.

QUOTE]

My cousin claims he cannot bare the man either, but judging by his daily Facebook posts on the subject, I fear he doth protest too much.

You see cousin works at the tax office in Glasgow and this building is on the street that was being used to film on. It's been re-named
Northeastern Savings and I had to laugh when my cousin posted this on FB yesterday:

"Another week turning down zombie loan applications draws to a close here at Northeastern Savings."

Poor sods had to continue working while all hell let loose on the streets below. If your a film fan, that's gotta be akin to torture!!

Anyhoo....great publicity for my home town of Glasgae!!! Must admit, getting fed up of the trillion 'hide your kids' jokes 'cos Brangelina are in town and they haven't got a 'Scottish one' yet....

Re: Brad Pitt filming in Glasgow

Brad Pitt will be visiting the barras before he leaves Glasgow.... I presume he is going to get a copy of his new film before it's released.
