John Travolta movie to begin filming in Cleveland

CLEVELAND (AP) – Movie crews are returning to Cleveland this summer.

Filming for the new movie “Criminal Activities” starring John Travolta will start on Tuesday.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports filming will require a number of road closures around the city through the end of June.

But the people behind the film promise no road is scheduled to be closed for more than about eight hours.

That’s welcome news for commuters who complained about gridlock last summer during the filming of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

The two-week shutdown of a busy route led to blocked intersections, delays and angry motorists.

Several other movies have been filmed in Cleveland over the last few years. They include “Draft Day” with Kevin Costner and “Jenny’s Wedding” starring Katherine Heigl (HEYE’-guhl).
