“Furious Velocity” will pass through Almada — filming will cut access to Cacilhas
The feature film chose several Portuguese scenarios to record the iconic car action sequences.
The tenth film in the “Furious Speed” saga is marked by several scenes shot in Portugal. A part of the scenes were recorded in the districts of Viseu and Vila Real. This time, the Municipality of Almada also authorized the occupation of the Cacilhas area for the production of the feature film. This means that the entire area will be closed to people and vehicles between the 27th and 30th of July.
The recordings include several car passages on the route between the Boca do Vento Elevator and the entrance to Quinta da Arealva, however, the cut in access will happen throughout the parish of the south bank of the Tagus.
“Fast X” is expected to hit theaters in May 2023. Portuguese Daniela Melchior is part of the cast, as well as names like Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Cardi B, Sung Kang, Jordana Brewster, Michael Rooker, Nathalie Emmanuel, Brie Larson and Jason Momoa.
