Yes folks, Fast & Furious Live will hit the road next year, and it’s exactly what you think it is: a live-action recreation of some of the finest stunts and motoring hoonery across eight films that have not so much broken box offices globally, but dispatched them into space.
“It’s been years in the making,” explains FF Live creative director Rowland French, “and we are beyond excited to finally show fellow fans what we have been creating in order to bring Fast & Furious Live to the global stage.”
We’re promised a two-hour show that will become “the most spectacular live arena production every produced”. There’s super advanced digital projection tech, “physics defying stunts”, fire, and of course, high-speed precision performance driving.
