Fast and Furious 9


Buckle up Edinburgh, Hollywood is taking over Holyrood!

That's right; the Fast and Furious cast is coming to the city to film the ninth blockbuster in the franchise. It’s been called one of the largest and most complex productions to shoot in Edinburgh with over 800 crew members. We're thrilled to see our iconic city streets being used as a backdrop for the popular series.
