Tests before filming begin this Wednesday. Elements of the production began to arrive in the region on Sunday
Since Sunday, the region has been receiving various elements from the production of Fast and Furious. Part of the tenth film of the plot will be shot between the districts of Viseu and Vila Real. This Wednesday tests will take place in the Castro Daire area, which will lead to the total cut of the A24, between Node 5 – Carvalhal to Node 7, in Castro Daire Norte.
Wednesday and Thursday (the 29th and 30th) are reserved for tests and tests, and the recordings are scheduled for the month of July, when a large part of the human resources that integrate the filming also arrives.
Initially, IP5, in the Vouzela area, was one of the chosen scenarios, but constraints in the assembly of part of the filming material led the production to retreat. However, several hotels in the city of Viseu will continue to be the resting place for the more than 600 people who will be involved in the film’s production. Warehouses and other spaces are also reserved to support the realization of the plot.
It will be difficult to find guys like Vin Diesel or the Portuguese Daniela Melchior since the vast majority of actors are doubles and the most well-known faces will have few scenes in national territory.
The A24 will thus be the “epicenter” of the film’s shooting in the region, between Viseu and Vila Pouca de Aguiar. On Wednesday the road will be closed between node 5 (Carvalhal) and 7 (Castro Daire Norte), and on Thursday between node 11 (Peso da Régua) and node 12 (Nogueira).
From the 6th to the 8th of July and later from the 11th to the 13th of July, also at the same time, from 6 am to 10 pm, there will be a road cut between node 15 (Vilarinho da Samardã) to node 16 (Vila Pouca de Aguiar) .
Between the 14th and 15th of July, the cut will be between node 5 (Carvalhal) and node 7 (Castro Daire Norte) and on July 18 between node 9 (Moimenta da Beira and Lamego) to node 10 (Armamar and Valdigem ). On the 19th, 20th and 21st, the section covered by the traffic cut between 6:00 am and 10:00 pm will be the one between node 15 (Vilarinho da Samardã) and node 16 (Vila Pouca de Aguiar).
From the 22nd to the 26th of July, at the same time, the cut in both directions will be made between node 11 (Peso da Régua) and node 12 (Nogueira), concludes the Portugal Centro Film Commission.
The councils of Lamego and Castro Daire (Viseu) had already asked residents and users of the A24 to understand the constraints on their mobility, stressing that it was a “unique opportunity” to promote that area of the country.
