The cast and crew of the Hollywood action thriller The Bourne Legacy have arrived in the Philippines.
They will start shooting scenes for the film in the capital, Manila, from tomorrow.
The fourth of the blockbuster series based on the spy novels of Robert Ludlum will be shot around the Philippines for a month.
It stars Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton but not Matt Damon, the star of first three Bourne films.
Francis Tolentino, head of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, said he will be fielding 120 crowd control personnel to assist traffic enforcers during the first day of shooting in Manila's Malate tourist district.
President Benigno Aquino III's spokesman Edwin Lacierda said the film will boost tourism and provide jobs.
