CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Filming of the new Bruce Willis action movie began in Cincinnati Monday morning.

Expect to hear gunfire at times as crews shoot "Reprisal" at Yeatman's Cove along Pete Rose Way until 7 p.m.

Filming is expected to continue over the next month Downtown, on The Banks near the Ohio River, in Over-the-Rhine and at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College in Clifton.

Scenes will include simulated gun fights, car chases, a car crash and a robbery in busy areas of the city.

Motorists should expect detours, slow traffic and loud noise in the area at times.

Cincinnati police are expected to direct traffic at each location.

The movie depicts the story of a Willis, who plays an assistant manager at bank, after it is violently robbed.

He struggles to overcome his PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) and continue taking care of his wife, played by Olivia Culpo, and young diabetic daughter.

With the police investigation going nowhere, he mounts his own investigation and tracks down the sociopathic criminal. 

Here is more of the filming schedule this week, according to city officials:

  • Rosa Parks Street at The Banks: Street closed south of Freedom Way from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday. Walnut Street will remain open.
  • John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge: Traffic restrictions and gunfire from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday.

City officials say they will provide continued updates for commuters and the general public.
