Cody Walker is in Australia for a series of charity events in honour of his late brother, The Fast And The Furious star Paul Walker.
And on Friday, Cody revealed to Daily Mail the ninth installment of the blockbuster film franchise series will be filmed and set Down Under.
‚The fans deserve Fast And The Furious 9 down here. It’s always somewhere new and they haven’t been here yet. It’s long overdue,‘ he said.

He also confirmed Vin Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto, is ‚very interested‘ in shooting the next film in Australia.
Cody hinted that while he does not appear The Fate Of The Furious, he is meeting with Vin Diesel to discuss a possible role in the next sequel.
He filled in as Paul’s Bryan O’Conner character in Furious 7, following the actor’s death in 2013 – but Cody now hopes to play a ‚brand new role.‘
