The Vin Diesel starrer takes place in a myriad of locations as the characters indulge in several chase scenes and action-packed sequences against different backdrops. Thus, it is natural for you to wonder where ‘Fast X’ was actually filmed.

Fast X Filming Locations

‘Fast X’ was filmed in Italy, Portugal, California, Spain, and England, especially in the Metropolitan City of Rome Capital, the Metropolitan City of Turin, Lisbon, Viseu, Vila Real, Vouzela, Los Angeles, Salamanca, London, and Hertfordshire. According to reports, principal photography for the action movie commenced in April 2022 and wrapped up in August of the same year. As per reports, Louis Leterrier filled the director’s chair following Justin Lin’s exit due to creative differences after just a week into production.

The Hollywood Reporter stated that Lin reportedly “had a major disagreement” with Vin Diesel on set, which likely furthered his decision to quit. However, a spokesperson for Universal said, “Any creative differences leading to Justin Lin’s exit were with the studio, not with fellow producers, cast or crew.” Consequently, Louis Leterrier replaced Lin and helmed the rest of the film. Now, allow us to walk you through all the specific locations that feature in the Jason Momoa starrer!
