Some fight scenes will also film aboard a large yacht as MegaYacht News reveals:
“We know that there will be some fight scenes on board, as these have been rehearsed while she was in the dock,” Gareth Twist, managing director of Yacht Solutions, says. “But we can’t reveal any more of the plot than that!” Twist does add, however, “Jason Statham came to the yacht in Bangkok to check it out before they took the yacht out to sea for filming.”
