BATON ROUGE - Filming for a new "Universal Soldier" movie will close some streets near downtown Baton Rouge this week.

According to Mayor-President Kip Holden's office, some sections of road will close over the next few days for crews to film car crashes, stunts and other scenes from the action film starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren.

Police said intermittent closures could happen this afternoon around the North Boulevard overpass, and wouldn't stop traffic for an extended amount of time. Street closures there could happen again between 6 a.m and 8 p.m. on Friday, May 20 and Monday, May 23.

On Thursday police will also close Gayosa Street to traffic between North 19 Street and North 22 Street, along with the section of North 21 Street between Spanish Town Road and North Street.

Also on Thursday from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m., police will close the section of North 19th Street that runs along the railroad tracks between North Boulevard and Government Street to film other scenes for the movie.

"Universal Soldier: A New Dimension" is a new film by Sony Pictures Entertainment, and stars Van Damme and Lundgren reprising their roles from the original "Universal Soldier" released in 1992.
