Fast and Furious 9 Will Be Filming in Krabi  Thailand

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 Bt340 million 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 head of the Krabi Tourism Authority said that filming of "The Fast and the Furious 9" will be great news for his province.
Apichai Aranyik said such a high profile movie with such well known actors will showcase Krabi all over the world.
He said that the producers of the film chose Krabi for its great natural scenery and limestone cliffs.
He asked Thais to be good hosts and co-operate with the filming. He warned people not to take their own films and break copyright laws.

Thai Rath reported that equipment such as cars and big bikes was pouring into the province and that two old factories - one a mill and one a rubber processing plant - were being used as storage facilities and places where some scenes will be filmed.

The scenic Ban Nai Sa - Khao Thong Road will be used for filming. Thai Rath said that road users will not be overly inconvenienced as they will use a diversion during filming.

Filming throughout most of next month will also take place in Phuket, Phangnga and Surat Thani.
