Just what's needed on Thailand's roads! "Fast and Furious 9" prepares for filming

Sanook reported that locals in southern Thailand were all excited at the prospect of "The Fast and The Furious" being filmed in Thailand. 

 

An auto parts supply firm in Krabi posted pictures online of cars, some under wraps, that looked like they would be used in the filming for the latest edition of the franchise, number nine in the series. 

 

Last week we reported that filming would take place in Krabi, Phangnga, Phuket and Surat Thai from July 1st to 27th. 

 

The company making the film is spending 340 million baht in Thailand that has sought to promote itself as a hub of film production.

No need to engage the "momentary suspension of disbelief" for this movie, in this country it's running 24/7. Directors cut,  admission free.

I never liked this franchise, Its like publicly encouraging and idealizing crazy and irresponsible driving.

I must admit it was a bit ironic when one of the main actors died in a real car accident while sitting in a fast moving Porsche.

 

Hope the ticket selling will be low, though i doubt that..

If ever there was a perfect filming location choice for a road rage movie whose juvenile, irresponsible characters break every single letter of the law and cause millions in public property damage, this is it!

It takes some believing, but today I witnessed just East of Pattaya, some work guys erecting protection barriers around road signage.

Nothing is safe or sacred from the Lunatics on Thai roads it would seem.

I hope they put the cars back in the center. Last F&F was a crappy spy movie, nothing like the first ones.
