CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Hollywood has returned to Cleveland.

And several roads are being shut down in order to film.

Today through Friday, Superior Avenue between Roadway and East 12th Street will be closed. East Ninth Street between Rockwell and Vincent will close periodically, but not during rush hour. And crews will shoot around Public Square as well, and the RTA will be rerouting buses.

With all the traffic changes also come big bucks.

The production will generate nearly 400 jobs on top of money crews will spend on food and hotels.

"We've had over $400 million of economic impact in Northeast Ohio," said Cleveland Film Commission's Ivan Schwarz. "For every dollar the state spends on the incentive, $2 is returned into the economy. We've created 1,700 full-time equivalent jobs, and this is just building on what we've already built on."

Don't expect to see any stars -- the film's key players will not be in town. This is just a second unit team that is filming some stunt scenes.
