Parts of the city will be changed into war-torn ruins as a cast and crew of 1,200 people shoot scenes in George Square and other locations in the centre. Fake shop fronts and American cars will be brought in to transform Glasgow into Philadelphia while a number of roads in the city centre will be closed to traffic.


Local people will also get the chance to star in the film as zombie extras after an open casting was held last month. Gordon Matheson, leader of Glasgow City Council, told the BBC: 'We are ready to welcome the World War Z production to Glasgow.


'There is great anticipation in the city ahead of such a huge film coming here.'


The shoot could boost local economy by more than £2m, according to Glasgow City Council.

In the film, based Max Brooks' 2006 novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, Pitt plays a worker at the United Nations Post-war Commission, collecting the stories and experiences of those who have survived a zombie attack.


Filming has already taken place in Valletta in Malta and in Falmouth in Cornwall.

World War Z is due to be released next year.
