ROME, Ga. -- Filming of a movie in Rome will involve a low-flying helicopter, several road closures and detours, and a funeral scene in a local cemetery.

Filming of the Dreamworks motion picture Need for Speed is set to begin Thursday and continue through Sunday.

The film stars Dominic Cooper, Aaron Paul, Michael Keaton and Imogen Poots in a story about a cross-country race framed by a massive bounty.

Filming will take place on the Rome bypass, Cave Spring Road and at Myrtle Hill Cemetery, where a funeral scene is to be shot Thursday.

Officials say a helicopter will be used for filming and may be flown closer than 500 feet from the ground.
