“unique appeal” of Glasgow’s architecture helps draw Halle Berry to city
September 1 2011
Cloud Atlas, a Hollywood remake of the eponymous novel, is to be filmed in the city between the 16-18th September and on September 26.
Montrose Street and other locations around Strathclyde University will be transformed into San Francisco for the shoot, just weeks after the city masqueraded as Philadelphia.
The production boasts an all-star cast including Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving and jim Sturgess - although it’s not thought any of these actors will be flying across the pond.
Instead it is believed that Halle Berry will be following in Pitt’s footsteps - although producers are yet to confirm this.
David Brown, Scottish line producer for the film, said: “In addition to a positive approach and its (Glasgow’s) position as the gateway to the rest of Scotland, the city’s architecture and classic grid system makes it uniquely appealing.”
