    George square in the city centre was turned into the set of the new zombie horror movie with brad Pitt. I only caught a glimpse of the scenes, from what I saw hundreds of people were running towards the armed police and the US soldiers for protection while they fired at what must be zombies being edited into the shot. Was cool, since I used to pass there every morning going to college. They finish tomorrow, this news article has better pics than what I got.

    I can't wait for it to come out, they were casting a few weeks ago. It was just weird going into town seeing the yellow cabs, American flags on top of buildings and the humvees and that.

    My girlfriends cousin got a photo with Brad Pitt, but we never saw him at all. The pictures I got of the set aren't that good cos the zoom isn't good, but this is what I got.

    I wonder why they just didn't film in the States if they were going to Americanize the streets?

    What's the movie called?

    It's called world war Z, based on a book apparently.

    I heard they chose Glasgow cos the buildings looked better than the ones in Philadelphia. But it's probably cos Glasgow already looks like a war zone.

    It's a joke, it has also been referred to as a post apocalyptic Paris lol. It's not, the city centre looks great in Xmas with the lights and trees everywhere.
