Last night, the people of Farnborough were treated to an explosive scene by film crews working in the area.
On Friday September 3, several production vehicles, filming equipment and crew members could be seen on O’Gorman Avenue in Farnborough.
That evening, around 11 p.m., filming began under cover of darkness but it was difficult for the action to remain a secret due to the noise.

Residents nearby flocked to watch the action unfold, with sleep unlikely thanks to the fake guns fired by the actors in the scene.
Several videos posted on social media show people dressed in black and in balaclavas entering the road before pretending to shoot others standing near military-type vehicles.
The “shooters” then run into the next building and climb the yellow spiral staircases to the roof where they are filmed aiming and shooting at other people standing on the roof.

It was not confirmed why the scenes were being shot, but a member of the public told HampshireLive that a member of security told him on Wednesday September 1 that a number of big stars would be arriving in the coming days. .
It had already been reported in June that two new productions were being filmed on the new sound stages which were built on the grounds of Farnborough International in the city.
These productions were “The Devil’s Hour”, produced for Amazon Prime Video, and “Inside Man”, a production produced for BBC One and Netflix.
Film crews were also spotted across Aldershot in July, with a game store on Wellington Street being transformed and a movie set up at Caesar’s Camp.
Although no further information is known at this point about the filming of Farnborough over the past few days, the army vehicles are very similar to those pictured at Caesar’s Camp in Aldershot in July.
