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.
