Fast and Furious Protest

Residents and activists hold photos of street racing victims as they march near the film set of the latest sequel of "Fast & Furious" in the Angelino Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, Friday, Aug. 26, 2022. Protesters chanted, "Street racing kills. Race on a track. Film in a studio." 

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Residents and supporters protested Friday against the filming of a new "Fast & Furious” movie in a Los Angeles neighborhood where locations that appeared in past installments of the action franchise have drawn illegal racing and street takeovers to the area.

About 20 protesters with photos of street racing victims marched near the movie filming site in Angelino Heights, chanting “Street racing kills. Race on a track. Film in studio.”

FilmLA, which handles film permits for the city, recently notified residents that the 10th film in the series would be filmed Friday and Saturday, the Los Angeles Times reported this week.
