LOS ANGELES (AP) — Drivers are being warned to avoid sections of a Southern California freeway that will be shut down this weekend for filming of the third installment of the "Hangover" movie franchise.

Sections of the 73 Freeway in coastal Orange County will see staggered closures until 7 p.m. Sunday.

To the south, the freeway becomes a toll road. The Los Angeles Times reports ( ) that the film's producer, Warner Bros., will pay for lost toll revenues and other costs.

Lori Olin, a spokeswoman for the San Joaquin Hills Transportation Corridor, tells the newspaper the agency will receive at least $25,000, including location fees.

The movie had also been filming earlier this week in the Santa Clarita Valley.

The 2009 blockbuster "The Hangover," about an ill-fated bachelor party trip to Las Vegas, earned over $400 million worldwide. Its 2011 sequel was also a mega hit.
