WASHINGTON (AP) - The District of Columbia's film office says Washington's Theodore Roosevelt Bridge will be closing temporarily for a major motion picture.

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

Disney announced last month that filming has begun 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. Film crews plan to capture aerial shots and will film at other Washington sites.

The bridge will be closed Sunday from 8:20 a.m. to 9:10 a.m. and again from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
