Filming for a movie starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - including low-flying helicopters and simulated gunfire - will again close several downtown streets this weekend.

Between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, filming of "Rampage" will require the closure of Wacker Drive between LaSalle and Lake; and Franklin Street from Wacker to Kinzie, according to the Chicago Department of Transportation.

Northbound and southbound drivers should use State Street as a detour and then proceed to either Grand or Randolph.

Between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday, Wacker Drive will be closed between Franklin and Washington; and Randolph will be closed between Franklin and Canal, according to CDOT.

Between noon and 7 p.m., Walton will also be closed between Clark and Dearborn; and Dearborn will be closed between Walton and Oak.

Both days, there will be brief and intermittent low-elevation helicopters and simulated gunfire, according to CDOT.
