A one-mile stretch of the Long Beach (710) Freeway will be closed for hours this weekend while crews film a movie apparently set to hit theaters next year.

These closures will be in effect both Saturday and Sunday, according to Caltrans:

  • Northbound 710 Freeway between the San Bernardino (10) Freeway and Valley Boulevard
  • All three lanes will be closed from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m.
     
  • Southbound 710 Freeway between Valley Boulevard and the 10 Freeway
  • All three lanes will be closed from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m.

The closure makes way for filming of "Walk of Shame," according to the film permit obtained by NBC4.

NBC4's Sindy Saito contributed to this report.

NOTE: The original version of this article incorrectly identified the freeway set for closure as being located in Orange County. It is in Los Angeles County.
