  • The superstar actor has been filming scenes for his new flick, World War Z, on the streets of the Scottish city

    Forget about the movie zombies roaming its streets – it’s all about Brad Pitt fever in Glasgow this week.

    The location for the actor’s latest flick, World War Z, has moved from its previous base in Falmouth, Cornwall, up to Scotland, where areas have been transformed to mimic the Stateside city of Philadelphia.

    The man himself arrived ready for filming yesterday, but took time to wave to the crowds of waiting fans before getting down to business.

    Brad traveled north with partner Angelina Jolie and their full clan of six children, chartering an entire Virgin train for the occasion at a reported cost of between £15,000 and £40,000.

    The family are expected to reside in the city while Brad’s busy on set, although they are yet to be spotted out in about. If their time in London is anything to go by, we can expect plenty of Jolie-Pitt treats – Angelina kept her brood busy with daily trips and outings, including visits to the London Aquarium, Hamleys and a Richmond cinema.
