COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Portions of the Pikes Peak Highway will be closed to visitors while Universal Pictures crews shoot a film on Sept. 4 and Sept. 5.

The director of the film, which has not been identified, requested the highway be closed to visitors while shooting because of several shots that involve a long setup time.

9NEWS Entertainment Reporter Kirk Montgomery has confirmed the film is "Fast and Furious 7" - a sequel to the fast-paced car race series.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, the highway will be open Labor Day weekend and the Pikes Peak Cog Railway will operate during normal hours during the closures.
