UCD 'moves to Washington DC' in a new Hollywood blockbuster

Pierce Brosnan's latest movie I.T. was shot on location in Dublin with scenes from UCD reimagined as a Washington DC setting.
Directed by John Moore, the film also stars Anna Friel and Disney actress Stefanie Scott.
And in stills taken from the movie, we see UCD masquerading as a building in Washington DC.
Scenes from the university's Arts block also act as the setting of a private school and the Science block makes an appearance as a swanky, corporate office.
Who knew it was so versatile a setting?
Filming also took place in Dun Laoghaire at the now vacant HSS Ferry terminal.
In I.T. Brosnan plays a wealthy aviation tycoon called Mike Ryan who is pitted against a disgruntled IT consultant who threatens his family and business.
The Navan-born actor has come under fire for his questionable Irish accent in the movie's trailer.
