Fast & Furious 7 to continue filming in April in Abu Dhabi…


The Abu Dhabi Film Commission (ADFC) and Universal Pictures  confirmed yesterday  that filming for Fast & Furious 7 will take place in the UAE’s capital in April.

Fast & Furious 7 is the latest major Hollywood production to be filmed in Abu Dhabi, attracted by the ADFC’s production incentive, which offers a 30 percent rebate on a qualifying spend in Abu Dhabi.

Filming initially commenced in November when a visual effects crew captured helicopter shots, stunt footage and a variety of visual effects scenes at some of Abu Dhabi’s most iconic landmarks but was stopped when Paul Walker, one of the movie’s stars, tragically died in a car crash in Los Angeles.

In April, actor/producer Vin Diesel, as well as actors Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, will arrive in Abu Dhabi to continue filming with Abu Dhabi’s twofour54 intaj serving as the UAE producer of the film.
