The latest installment of the popular action film franchise is using purpose-built sets on the vast Eggborough Power Station site in North Yorkshire, according to the York Press.
The production, called Hobbs & Shaw, is a spin-off from the main films and has members of the same cast in their regular roles.
Dwayne Johnson - aka The Rock - will play Agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham is mercenary Deckard Shaw.
Idris Elba and The Crown actress Vanessa Kirby also star as a villain and an MI6 agent respectively.
Filming will take place over a week in November on private land, so no roads will be closed.
Spectacular stunts involving high-performance cars are expected to feature in the movie.
The Universal Pictures project will hit cinemas next summer.
