UNIVERSAL has left to extreme lengths to keep its new Fast Furious authorization a secret.
Led by an armed chaperon to a secret hangar on an unmarked military bottom in North England – we’re awaiting big things.
“Do not leave the Fast Training hangar,” warns a tank commander at the gate.
“War dogs are on the bottom and they can be delayed to respond. We don’t wish any publisher and fight dog interactions.”
We’re awaiting to see Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson ripping out the front doors armed to the teeth in the latest supercars.
And what we actually get isn’t distant off.
Costing a large £25million, Universal has combined Fast Furious Live – a big-stadium live show featuring the best stunts from the eight FF films – and we got a glimpse behind-the-scenes.
Opening in Jan 2018, fans can watch a new storyline weaving together the iconic cars and biggest stunts played out at London’s O2 Arena.
3D mapping is pivotal to the show, using the latest projection tech to spin outrageous arenas into film sets from around the world.
One notation you’ll be in London in the rain, the next in LA or Rio.
After the show opens in London, FF Live goes on debate via the world, holding 40 cars to 40 cities. This is big business.
Eleven attempt drivers have been comparison from over 2,000 entrants to take partial in what’s betrothed to be the world’s biggest live attempt show.
We snuck into the hangar to watch them train, behaving red arrow-style crossovers, tyre-melting doughnuts and inch-perfect pointing driving.
Of the 11, 3 are womanlike attempt drivers including 20-year-old deposit star Jodie Rasburn and gifted race ace Jessica Hawkins.
“We’re all a large family now,” Jodie tells The Sun. “Our best stunt? We’ve got jumping the submarine, the lorry heist… they’re positively extraordinary and the assembly are going to adore them.
“If the assembly see a womanlike attempt driver, they’re going to adore that. Normally we drive a Mini, but my favourite automobile from the show is the Lykan.”
Vin Diesel and the other stars will seem only video, with the categorical tools of this new story driven by new characters and new actors.
Fresh out of play school, new-star Elysia Wren said: “I play Sophia, a really clever alpha female. we can drive, and I’ve learnt how to deposit for this.
“It’s incredible. But we can’t tell you about the many dangerous stunt, it’s a secret, but it involves a plane.”
Lead attempt motorist Chris Burns explains the problems in doing live stunts: “In film work you can do take after take… we have to do it live. And that requires loyalty to be consistent.
“Our group are extraordinary in every clarity of the word. They operation from 20 to 53 years old.
“The 3 females are overwhelming and every partial of the team. One of the girls has some-more courage than many of the guys. They are tremendous.
“My favourite automobile is possibly the Toyota Supra of the Dodge Charger RT.”
The show’s producers explain Fast Furious Live will be as big a diversion changer as Cirque du Soleil for the circus, or the iPod to music. A outrageous claim.
Tickets, starting at £35, go on sale next Friday and can be bought online.
