“Fast & Furious 9” Plans UK, Hawaii Shoots

Vin Diesel is set to have a busy 2019 with USA Production News reporting that the ninth official film in the “Fast and Furious” main franchise will be filming in both London and Hawaii in April.

Justin Lin, who helmed the third through sixth films, is back to direct the new entry in the franchise with plot specifics unknown. The film gears up as the spin-off feature “Hobbs and Shaw” is currently filming ahead of an August release.

Diesel is expected to segue from wrapping filming on “Fast 9” to getting to work on “xXx 4” which will shoot in the back half of the year.
