Fast & Furious 9 sets up UK shoot
The ninth feature in the Fast & Furious franchise is setting up to film in the UK next year.

Little is known as yet about which of the regular cast members will return alongside Vin Diesel.

A spinoff film, Hobbs and Shaw, which centres on the two characters played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in the Fast & Furious series, began filming in the UK in September. It has since shot in locations including Glasgow, where a high-speed car chase was filmed, and is also using Eggborough power station in Yorkshire.
