The Fast & Furious franchise is known for its mind blowing stunts – and the next film looks set to be no exception.

The crew for Fast & Furious 9 are currently in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh for shooting, where a stuntman was seen jumping between a bus and a van.

Filming was taking place on Waterloo Place in Edinburgh; previously, production shut down Londons The Mall for a high speed car chase scene.

Production for the Vin Diesel-starring flick will shut down much of the city during September, including up to 52 roads, according to local news outlets.

Another stunt captured on camera by a fan saw a man jump from a window. (He, and the other stuntman, were of course wearing harnesses).

An 800-person crew will also descend on the city for filming.
