'Fast and Furious 9' Suffers Production Delay Over Stuntman's Injury on Set

Bosses at Universal Studios confirm that a stuntman for the ninth installment of the action franchise has been left injured at Leavesden Studios in the United Kingdom.

AceShowbiz - Production on the latest "Fast and Furious" movie has stalled following a set injury to a stuntman.

The incident occurred at Leavesden Studios in the U.K., where the ninth instalment of the action franchise is shooting.

"We had an injury on the set of FAST 9 today in Leavesden with one of our stuntmen," a statement from film bosses at Universal Studios read. "We have halted production for the day to focus on this situation."

Directed by Justin Lin, the films stars Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren and John Cena.

Leavesden was also the site of a blaze that broke out earlier this month (July 2019) during filming of "Avenue 5", the new series from "Veep" creator Armando Iannucci. Firefighters spent over 15 hours tackling the fire.

The set involved was not being used at the time and there were no reported injuries.
