About 130 people will be involved in the production, the permits say, and there will also be filming in the BB&T lobby.

The filming will require parking meter closures, as well as barricades and traffic cone orders. There will closures on Broadway from College Street to North Pack Square, as well on Patton Avenue from Lexington to Broadway, and North Pack Square/Broadway to Market, and on Biltmore Avenue from Eagle Street to North Pack Square, according to the permits.

Those road closures will be from 6-9 a.m.

Also expect a lane closure on the north side, westbound lane on College Street between Market and Broadway.

The permits also say that there will be a base camp, equipment trucks, crew and extras parking off site, and in private lots and decks.

The movie, about a famous Charlotte bank robbery, stars Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and Kristen Wiig, and has been filming in Asheville and surrounding areas since early July.

The production office is based downtown at 1 W. Pack Square (BB&T Building).

The film is based on the $17.3 million cash robbery of the regional vault of Loomis Fargo & Company in Charlotte in 1997. The heist, which was the largest robbery in the United States at the time, was organized by an armored car driver and vault supervisor.

The casting company for the film, Tona B. Dahlquist Casting, also put out a call Wednesday for more extras for Monday.
