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.
Justin Lin – who was at the helm of three previous instalments of the high-octane film series - directs the feature from a screenplay by Daniel Casey and Chris Morgan.
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.
