Fast & Furious 10: where are we on the set?
Regarding the filming of the next part of Fast & Furious, it seems that the project is still in progress, even if the production company had already announced that the film would be released next year. However, it seems that the project encountered some problems last August during a filming in the Angelino Heights district which is located in Los Angeles.
In all of the Fast & Furious films, the Angelino Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles is home to the landmark of Dominique Torreto (Vin Diesel) and his gang. According to some rumors, it seems that Angelino Heights is actually a neighborhood of Street Racers, a city where you meet illegal races with overpowered and modified cars .
Because of this, when Vin Diesel and his gang traveled to this neighborhood to shoot part of the upcoming film, the residents of Angelino Heights staged a protest and criticism. According to the opinion of these inhabitants, it seems that the Fast & Furious films encourage young people in the neighborhood to do Street Racing. Knowing that it’s a kind of race that is illegal and can cause serious accidents, they worry about the safety of young people in their community.
