“This action is like nothing you’ve ever seen,” said Vin Diesel in the video of the stunt sequence, which is being called Zombie Cars.
“We have seven cars falling from the parking structure,” said special effects supervisor, J.D Schwalm. “And each one of them is aiming at a motorcade here. We have to pull these cars at an exact speed, and we’re doing that using a winch on the crane… each car comes out in succession, then land on the vehicles on the road, here.”
“Obviously there’s no-one in them, because they’re about to be impaled…”
This is insane.
