WWZ: Scotland Philly?

Caught some footage of a set in Glasgow for WWZ, loaded with Philly street signage and local-ish vehicles.

Would love to know why they don't just film it all here (edit: they did film a lot here judging from the official trailer). I get interrelated budgets, proximity of flexible sets, etc. Guess they needed Europe to film both a New England -looking location and something that looks like India or Pakistan.

Still. If Philly is in the movie, shoot it here, so says the Always Sunny in Philadelphia fan who seldom sees the crews here... but I did actually see Danny DeVito near Liberty Place in a hospital gown; a place which also appears in Z.

Also, WWZ drops on my birthday so I guess that means I'll definitely be seeing it then.


NEWSFLASH: I paused the clip to figure out where the exteriors of Philadelphia were. In the pic below you are looking due West from the Ben Franklin bridge, the roadway on the bottom left is the foot of that bridge. That makes the roadway 676 going down to Broad St.

THAT MEANS THE BURNING PLUME ON THE LOWER RIGHT IS MY OLD HIGHSCHOOL, ROMAN CATHOLIC HIGH!

Thank you Zombpocalypse!
