Fast & Furious 8 (also known as Fast 8 or Furious 8) is one of most awaited upcoming 2017 American action movie. This is going to be eighth sequel of The Fast and the Furious series. The film is being directed by F. Gray and is written by Chris Morgan. The film is based on Characters by Gary Scott Thompson and is distributed by Universal Studios. The film is scheduled to hit the theatres on April 14, 2017.
Fast and the Furious 8 movie confirmed and titled as “Fast 8”
Movies that crosses a mark of $1 billion worldwide often produce sequels. The extremely profitable Fast and Furious 7 ended with a closure and raise some questions if their will be another sequel or not? Can the franchise continue after Paul Walker’s death? Will it ever make a comeback? or was it time to bid adieu to the movie series?But soon we had a definitive answer. Vin Diesel just before the release of seventh instalment of the film, confirmed that Fast and Furious 8 is happening and made everyone excited. However, there were a lot of questions about the cast and crew to be involved.
Once it was confirmed that they’d be continuing with Fast and Furious 8, the first thing which was done is scheduling a release date. The main challenge is to find a new director and have enough time to finish off the screenplay. It was soon announced that F. Gray Gray will be directing the Fast & the Furious 8, as James Wan was busy with Aquaman. The movie will hit theatres worldwide on April 14, 2017.
So, far the rating of the movie is unknown, as it’s still under production. Meanwhile, all the other films in series had a PG-13 rating, so we’re hoping that Fast 8 would also have a PG-13 rating as well. Fast and Furious 8 will be the first film other than Tokyo Drift to not to star Paul Walker, who died in a single car accident on November 30, 2013.
The eighth instalment is being produced by Neal H. Moritz. The producer confirmed that Paul’s character, Brian O’Connor, will not appear in the film, with him stating that the character has moved on. The principal photography commenced on March 14, 2016 in Myvatn,Iceland. In April the shooting began in Cuba’s capital Havana, for which the Universal sought approval from Cuban government. Some parts were also shot in New York, Ohio and Atlanta.
