COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) -- Moviemakers say filming of "Need for Speed" will close a bridge linking Georgia and Alabama for several days as they shoot a scene of a car being driven into the Chattahoochee River.

The 13th Street Bridge over the Chattahoochee will be closed from the morning of June 4 until as late as noon June 8.

The bridge links the Georgia city of Columbus to the Alabama community of Phenix City.

Patrick Mignano of NFS Productions/Dreamworks Studios said the scene to be filmed on the bridge will involve a high-end sports car being driven off the bridge into the river below.

"Need for Speed" has already filmed scenes in other Georgia cities, including Macon and Rome.
