It’s a bit of a tradition in the media that radio stations and news channels try and pull the wool over their audiences’ eyes on the 1st of April. While listeners are usually too smart to get caught out, it’s always fun to try. The Smile Breakfast team toyed with the idea that the producers behind the upcoming Fast & Furious 9 movie chose Cape Town as a location to shoot a part of the film. Lindy announced that director Justin Lin planned to use part of the N1 to shoot the longest ever single shot stunt scene, and this would require the particular section of the highway to be closed for a month.
While it’s not true, how great would it be if it WAS shot in the Mother City? Who knows, maybe this will give the producers of Fast & Furious 10 some ideas.
