Major Moroccan Motorway to be Closed for Filming

A section of a major motorway in the south of Morocco is to be closed for several days in order to allow filming of a sequence for a major movie

The motorway between Marrakech and Agadir will be closed in the area around the Agadir/Tamansourt interchange from 6 am on August 30th to midnight on September 12th.

Signage will be put in place showing motorists the alternative route available. Those travelling from Agadir to Casablanca will exit at the Tamansourt junction and rejoin at the Marrakech Palmeraie station.

There is no official disclosure of the name of the movie being shot but much speculation.  The best bet is probably Mission Impossible 5 whose shooting dates in Morocco appear to coincide with the road closure. The film is directed by Christopher McQuarrie and its cast includes Tom Cruise, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner.

Another possibility is Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which also shoots in Morocco in September.
