BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The downtown portion of Florida Street between 7th and 9th streets will be closed Tuesday. 

The street will be closed to traffic from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. due to movie filming. 

Scenes are being shot for the Tom Cruise movie, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. 

Baton Rouge police will be there to deal with traffic, and no parking signs will be placed on the north side of the 700 block of Florida as well as both sides of the 200 and 300 blocks of North 7th Street. 

Production from the movie has been working with officials to minimize traffic delays in the area. Trucks will be rerouted to North Street to avoid the closure.
