Halle Berry braves Scottish weather on set of Cloud Atlas

imageHollywood star Halle Berry braved cool showery weather as she filmed scenes for a new movie in Scotland.

The actress is on location in Glasgow working on Cloud Atlas, which comes out next year.

The city is standing in for 1970s San Francisco and vintage American cars and US sign posts can be seen in some streets in the centre.

Dressed in indigo flares, a beige jacket and brown high heeled boots, Halle shot scenes with actor Keith David today.

Between takes she wore a long puffy black coat to keep warm.

Cloud Atlas is based on British author David Mitchell’s best-selling 2004 novel, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

The unconventionally-structured tale of interlinking narratives charts the story of one soul across the centuries.

The film also features Tom Hanks and British actors Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess and The Hour’s Ben Whishaw.

Most of the filming is taking place in Germany but producers say they are filming in Glasgow because of the “support and encouragement” offered by the city, as well as its Victorian-era grid street system and architecture.

The three day shoot will finish tomorrow but the film crew will return on September 26 to shoot more scenes.

It is just over a fortnight since filming of Hollywood star Brad Pitt’s zombie movie World War Z wrapped up in Glasgow.

Part of the city was transformed into a replica of Philadelphia’s financial district, with thousands of locals cast as extras.
