Two weeks ago, a section of the car park behind Chemist Warehouse at Capalaba was roped off for the filming of Young Rock, which follows the movie star's formative years.

Night scenes were shot outside Wicked Brew Cafe on Dollery Road and on Lorraine Street, where crews set up a temporary bus stop.

Filming also took place at Strathpine north of Brisbane, with American actor Bradley Constant seen playing the role of Dwayne Johnson.

Vintage cars were unloaded from a truck near Loraine Street and brought onto the Capalaba set about 1pm ahead of filming.

The production caused some excitement among locals, with a few seen taking to their verandas for photos as the cars rolled into the set.

Young Rock is the latest production to hit the Redlands, following on from filming for movies like Aquaman, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Paramount Players movie Love and Monsters, which was shot at Alexandra Hills and Mount Cotton in 2019, goes to air on US streaming services from Friday.

Mayor Karen Williams said filming for Young Rock was yet another example of the attraction Redlands held for film makers.

"This new production ... adds to our already impressive list of big name productions filmed here," she said.

"Not only is it exciting to know our naturally wonderful city will be showcased on screens around the world, but the boost to the local economy is also welcome.

"As we focus on recovering from the impacts of COVID-19, international productions such as this help support our economy through film crews and actors using our local businesses and services."

Cr Adelia Berridge said it was good to see Redlands continue as a preferred shooting location for film and television producers.

"Having productions such as this come to Redlands Coast only increases our global reputation as a natural choice for film and television," she said.

The production had also received support from the Queensland government through Screen Queensland.
