EXCLUSIVE: Fast & Furious sequel looks set to film an action set-piece in Ireland

Putting the WILD into the Wild Atlantic Way.

In order, these are the places that the Fast and the Furi-verse have speed-raced in, or caused significant collateral damage around:


Los Angeles, Miami, Tokyo, Dominican Republic, Panama City, Mexico, Rio de Janeiro, London, Spain, Los Angeles (again), Azerbaijan, Abu Dhabi, New York City, Havana, Berlin, and a really cold part of Russia.

To be honest, we were starting to feel a little left out, and that isn't even including the destruction brought to London (again) and Samoa in Hobbs & Shaw, which is why we were talking to writer and producer Chris Morgan.

He has written every F&F movie since Tokyo Drift, and has been a producer on the series since Fast & Furious 6, so if there was a man to talk to about the future of the franchise, it would be him.

JOE sat down with Morgan in the lead-up to the release of Hobbs & Shaw, and formally invited him to come to Ireland to blow up some landmarks and tear up our reads for the sake of big screen excitement, and it turns out that the makers of the movies are well ahead of us.


"Can I say this?", starts Morgan. "So we always [ask] 'How do you decide what locations to use?' and 'What do you need?' and what is the story requiring.

"But we look everywhere on the globe, and we have selected places that we would like to go, and sequences that we would like to do. So don't think that is an idea that is coming out of nowhere.

"It has been considered and will probably be coming up down the road."

JOE then told Morgan that we're really looking forward to seeing Fast & Furious 10 in Ireland, to which he replied "Love it."

JOE was also lucky enough to chat to the movie's stars Jason Statham, Idris Elba, and Vanessa Kirby, as well as the movie's director David Leitch (famous for John Wick, Atomic Blonde, and Deadpool 2), and you can catch all those on The Big Reviewski in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Hobbs & Shaw screeches into Irish cinemas on Thursday 1 August.
