I f you’re a die-hard fan of the chain of Fast and Furious movie then you’re in for a great time.
Fans of Fast & Furious are expecting when the first ever live incarnation of the franchise premieres in London later.
The live show is an extension of the film series but rather than being a recreation or continuation of the timeline of the films, it takes on a whole new narrative. “We have new characters that you meet at the beginning, and they have their own new storyline,” explains creative director and executive producer Rowland French.
“So we’ve been able to dig into the world of Fast & Furious, and it’s a journey that takes you through all of these massive moments from different parts of the movie.”
The show recreates some of the most daring stunts from across the eight films, which have taken more than $5bn (£3.6bn) at the global box office since 2001.
French, a former producer at the BBC, says he got the idea for a live version of Fast & Furious while working on Top Gear Live.
“I wrote Fast & Furious Live, storyboarded it, and took it to the US, and pitched it to the licensing team, and they asked me to pitch it to their bosses, and it just kind of rolled from there,” he explains.
“Then I found myself in front of the board of Universal Pictures, so it wasn’t something they were necessarily looking for, I just believed it would be an amazing show.”
