A mate of mine told me that most of the US taxis, police cruisers and so on from the Glasgow filmed bits of World War Z are sitting rusting away in a junkyard somewhere on the outskirts of the city.
Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

On the first day of Salman Khan's next film Kick shooting in Glasgow, the crew faced with an accident. Watch the video to know more.

Badum tish! :)

Since we're (kind of) on the subject, am I the only one who thought World War Z was a load of shite?

Nope. Absolutely spot on. You should e-mail your CV to the E.B.C`s Film Review.

Apparently, the original ending was much bleaker.

There's a 1950 film (mentined on HG here), and an 1980 TV dramatisation.

I wouldnt think all of them are,, a lot of that stuff was on hire. Two of the cruisers came from a prop company in london. The bin lorry and the cars that got crushed in the main Glasgow scenes might be though. ask your mate where he saw them.
Is this gonna be a standup fight, sir, or another bughunt?
