The historic Croydon girls' school has been a hive of activity this morning as huge lights are erected inside the main courtyard.
Residents living in Old Palace and in nearby Howley Road have been asked to move their cars for the weekend.
In Hummingbird, Statham plays an ex-special forces soldier who finds himself embroiled in London's criminal underworld.
The film was recently picked up by Lionsgate, with scenes having already been filmed in Soho.
