Production on Fast and Furious 9 suspended after serious injury to stuntman
Production on the ninth instalment of Fast & Furious has been halted after an accident left a stuntman with serious head injuries.
According to BBC News, production was suspended after an air ambulance and police were called to the studios in Leavesden, where the film is currently shooting.
A spokeswoman for Universal said: "We had an injury on the set of Fast 9 today in Leavesden with one of our stuntmen. We have halted production for the day to focus on this situation."
The new film sees Justin Lin, who has overseen four of the franchise's previous movies, back behind the camera.
John Cena, Finn Cole, Anna Sawai and Vinnie Bennett have also been added to the roster for the new movie.
Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris and Nathalie Emmanuel will all return for the next outing, but Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Jason Statham, who will next be seen in spin-off Hobbs and Shaw, will not be back.
Regular writer Chris Morgan has been working with Statham and Johnson on Hobbs and Shaw, so Daniel Casey this time provides the script.
Fast And Furious 9 will be released into UK cinemas on May 22nd in 2020.
