Fast and Furious 9 cars arrive in Krabi

KRABI (ANN): Cars to be used in the filming of Fast and Furious 9 have arrived in Krabi.

An auto parts supply firm in Krabi, with some knowledge of the production schedule for the film, posted photos of some of the vehicles likely to be used when filming starts next month.

The producers said the production is spending Bt340mil (RM45mil) in Krabi, Phang Ngan and Phuket, using Thai crews as support.

Thai production manager Piya Pestonji last week met Kitibadee Prawit, the governor of Krabi, to discuss logistics with the Tourism Authority of Thailand boss in Krabi, Apichai Aranyik.

The Krabi governor has said the film is hoped to be a “great advertisement for the nature, culture and history of the kingdom”.

The governor has probably not seen the other films which showcase illegal street racing, dangerous driving and criminal activity conducted by the “heroes”.

Tony Jaa, the Thai action star, appeared in Fast and Furious 7, taking on Paul Walker. – The Nation/Asia News Network
