From 24 May to 6 June in Turin the filming of Fast X, the new film in the Fast & Furious saga

The eagerly awaited filming of “Fast X”, the tenth chapter of the Universal Pictures global blockbuster “Fast & Furious”, will begin on Tuesday 24 May in the streets of the center of Turin.

“Fast X” stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Sung Kang, Nathalie Emmanuel, Charlize Theron, John Cena, Jason Momoa and Brie Larson who are currently filming in London.


The feature film is produced by Universal Pictures, with Wildside – a company of the Fremantle Group – in charge of executive production for Italy, and is made with the support of the Turin Piedmont Film Commission, the City of Turin and the Piedmont Region.

After completing two weeks of filming in Rome, there will be two weeks of shooting in Turin, for 10 days of actual filming – which will take place from Tuesday 24 May to Monday 6 June – which required a long and articulated preparation work, equal to about 20 weeks. After the first site inspections which took place last autumn, the production has in fact been permanently established in Turin since January, with an operational base at the headquarters of the Turin Piedmont Film Commission.

The impressive American production machine will have a crew of around 400 people (a number 5 times higher than the average), as well as more than 100 local professionals who have been collaborating for months in finding locations and finalizing the working plan in close synergy with FCTP and the competent offices of the City of Turin.

“Fast X” will produce a very significant economic impact, amounting to approximately 3.8 million euros, mainly deriving from location rental costs, hospitality expenses (hotels, crew catering, restaurants), expenses related to technical personnel and to the local workers employed on the set, costs related to safety and health expenses, technical support for setting up the base camp (warehouses and sheds).

The scenes created in the main streets, squares and bridges of Turin (Piazza Crimea and Corso Fiume, Ponte Umberto I, Ponte Vittorio Emanuele I, Murazzi del Po, Via Roma, Largo IV Marzo) will have a great scenic impact, with a high action content and will involve some of the best professional stuntmen specialized in chases, which have become a hallmark of every “Fast & Furious” film.

According to the President of the Turin Piedmont Film Commission Beatrice Borgia “Fast X represents a fundamental reconfirmation of the role that Turin and Piedmont have carved out for themselves over the years in the national and international audiovisual world. By managing to welcome an American production of this caliber, our territory demonstrates once again that it possesses great skills, institutions capable of providing adequate support and assistance, highly specialized professionalism and the ability to face complex production needs”.

A warm welcome to all the professionals who will be in Turin in the coming days, engaged in the filming of the film Fast X: a film production – as underlined by the Councilor for Culture of the City of Turin – which will bring to the city important and positive economic than in terms of image. The cultural policy manager of the Piedmontese capital also points out that the link between Turin and cinema, great cinema, is always alive, very close and long-standing. Every year, thanks to the synergistic work carried out by the City of Turin with the Turin Piedmont Film Commission and other local institutions, the city offers its services and is the set for many productions.

The Councilor for Culture of the Piedmont Region also underlines that, thanks to the constant work put in place by FCTP and the construction of a solid productive ecosystem, our territory is once again being offered the opportunity to promote its excellence to the general public and , in parallel, to distinguish itself as a key player in the international cinema industry.
