MACON, Ga. (AP) -- Residents in a Macon neighborhood are preparing for some disruptions as a motion picture is filmed in the area.

The Telegraph reports that "Need for Speed," a DreamWorks Studios film, is scheduled to shoot scenes on Magnolia Street all day Thursday.

Filming for the movie begins Wednesday in other parts of the city, including the area around Hardeman Avenue.

The movie, directed by Scott Waugh, who also directed "Act of Valor" in 2012, is an adaptation of the popular video game series "Need for Speed." Cast members include Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad"), Dominic Cooper ("Captain America"), Imogen Poots ("Fright Night") and Michael Keaton ("Batman").
