The Roosevelt Bridge will be closed Sunday for the filming of a major motion picture.

The District of Columbia's film office says Washington's Theodore Roosevelt Bridge will be closing temporarily on Sunday for a major motion picture.

The film office says the bridge between the nation's capital and Virginia will close at various times for "Freezer Burn." This working title has been connected to a new "Captain America" movie.

Disney announced last month that filming is underway for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" in Los Angeles, Cleveland and Washington. It stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Robert Redford.

D.C. film officials say the Roosevelt Bridge plays an integral role in the film. Crews plan to capture aerial shots and film at other Washington sites.

The bridge will be closed Sunday morning from 8:20 to 9:10 and again this afternoon from 1 to 1:30.
