You can't take in the view from the Pikes Peak Highway Wednesday, but you'll be able to see it on the big screen sometime soon.

A movie production has shut down a large portion of the highway through Thursday, then again on September 6 and 10. This is no small budget production--filming is for the seventh installment of the "Fast and the Furious" franchise.

Glen Cove to the summit will be closed Wednesday and Thursday; filming on the 6th and 10th will extend the road closure to the North Slope Recreation Area.

A rep with the highway says that the movie company is paying $175,000 for the closure.

If you're wanting to visit Pikes Peak you still can: the Cog Railway, as well as the Barr Trail, will both remain open.
