Delays on Venetian and MacArthur expected Sunday night — for movie scene

The city of Miami Beach is warning there will be traffic delays on the Venetian and MacArthur causeways Sunday between 7 and 9 p.m. for filming of the movie, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.

“Although the actual filming and road closure will take place for less than 10 minutes, the coordinating agencies and Fox US Productions 21 have blocked out the two-hour span on Sunday night,” the city says in a press release.

The filming involves helicopter and a single car, the city says, as well and coordination from the cities of Miami and Miami Beach, the Florida Department of Transportation, the Coast Guard and the FAA.

The movie, expected to be released in summer 2013, is a fantasy about the son of Poseidon, and is the sequel to Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief. It stars Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario and Brandon T. Jackson. The cast includes Stanley Tucci.

Some interesting scenes were shot in Vancouver and captured on YouTube.
