Where was Fast & Furious 9 filmed? The House & ALL the Filming Locations: Montequinto

Posted by

The Fast and Furious family is celebrating twenty years of high-octane cars, brainless action thrills, and sensational filming locations. This installment of the saga speeds into theaters more than a year after its originally planned May 2020 release.

F9 or Fast and Furious 9 was filmed in England, Scotland, Los Angeles, Thailand, and in the Caucasian nation of Georgia.

Fast Furious 9 Location

Dom Toretto (played by Vin Diesel), who used to be an outlaw, has settled down and is living with his son Brian and his wife, Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez). The crew returns to action when Cipher (Charlize Theron) teams up with Jakob (John Cena), Dom's younger brother, to take revenge on Dom and his team.

F9, which marks the penultimate chapter of the franchise, is the sequel to The Fate of the Furious (2017). Hobbs and Shaw (2018) was a spinoff starring The Rock and Jason Statham, who do not even make a brief cameo, although this film is reuniting many old members of the speedy troupe.

Welcome to our magnetic guide to the filming locations of Fast and Furious 9. Look no further. We have everything right here:

Welcome to Montequinto

Montequinto
The group travels to Montequinto, a fictional place located somewhere in Central America, although it totally looks like what it is: South East Asia. These sequences were all filmed in Thailand.

The filmmakers choose to shoot in Krabi province, famous for its impressive limestone rocks, natural scenery, and for being the filming location of Leonardo DiCaprio's 2000's movie The Beach.

Most of the filming in the country took place on a scenic road and palm plantation in Ban Nai Sa in Khao Thong.

Montequinto Fast and Furious
The shoot in Thailand involved a total of eight different locations, including establishing shots to capture the limestone cliff scenery in Surat Thani and Phuket.

According to KFTV, the production also filmed scenes in the temple of Wat Nai Sa in Khao Thong, and a mill in the Ban Bang Toei area of Thai Meuang.

Mr Nobody underground safe house
The Thailand Film Office confirmed that all the scenes were recorded using stuntmen while the lead actors were filming the movie in the UK and US.

The sections of the Montequinto sequence with the main cast were filmed at Leavesden Studios in England. Some more sets were built here in the studios, including the hangar, Mr. Nobody's underground safe house (played by Kurt Russell), and the scenes taking place in Tokyo with Letty and Mia (Jordana Brewster).


4th Street Bridge LA
The flashback scene in Los Angeles was filmed in the Arts District in downtown LA. The race kicks off on Mateo Street and East 4th Place and goes through the historical 1931 4th Street Bridge.


Jahn Jet Propulsion Test Site
Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and Tej (Ludacris) recruit Sean (Lucas Black), Twinkie (Bow Wow), and Earl Hu (Jason Tobin) at the fictional Jahn Jet Propulsion Test Site in Cologne.

This scene with the Pontiac Fiero strapped to a rocket engine was actually filmed at the Royal Air Force Station Greenham Common in Berkshire, England.

This complex was used during the times of the cold war to store nuclear cruise missiles. Today, the area is designated as a public park and occasionally hosts filming productions like the 2015 Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens.

This 17th-century estate has been featured in many movies and TV shows including Rebecca, Bridgerton, and Wonder Woman.


Director Justin Lin with Dodge Charger
The shoot in Edinburgh lasted 19 days in September 2019. After the aerial footage featuring Edinburgh Castle, there is a scene filmed at St Giles' Cathedral. Ramsey (played by Nathalie Emmanuel) is sitting in a café outside, near Parliament Square.

Dom is driving a gorgeous 1968 Dodge Charger with a mid-mounted V8 engine through the Royal Mile. The chase with the truck containing the electromagnet continues to High Street, Victoria Street, Cockburn Street, and George Street.

Tbilisi satellite launch building
The strange satellite launch pad control tower in Tbilisi is the former Ministry of Automobile Roads. This building, looking like a pile of misplaced Tetris pieces, is today the Bank of Georgia headquarters.

The architect's idea was to make the building look like... a forest. Yep, the horizontal parts are supposed to be the crowns.

Although the structure is considered part of the Brutalism movement, the design is based on a concept named the Space City method, consisting of giving the space under the building back to nature.

F9 The Fast Saga in Tbilisi
The family managed to shut down the busiest street of Tbilisi, the iconic Rustaveli Avenue. This is the heart and soul of the beautiful Georgian capital.

The starting-off point for this crazy magnetic chase was the central Liberty Square, featuring the Monument of St. George column.

Fast and Furious 9 Armadillo
The stunts included catapults throwing cars at the armored trailer, called the Armadillo, on the same street where the Parliament of Georgia, The National Gallery, the Opera and Ballet Theatre, and the McDonalds are located.

The sequence of the home appliances store, with all the metallic stuff going out of the window, was done on location using practical effects.


Fast and Furious 9 Drehorte
Some more filming took place at Vazha Pshavela Avenue and University Street.

The last section of the sequence, with many dilapidated apartment blocks, was filmed in the Georgian city of Rustavi, located about 20 miles southeast of Tbilisi.

Dominic Toretto House
The new house, CGI'd to make it look like it's still under construction, it's located at 722 E Kensington Road in Angelino Heights (Los Angeles).
