Well, we have made no secret of our fandom of the Fast and Furious movies and with the eighth one on the horizon we’re really excited for it…
And now, from the Iceland set, we have a load of cool new images.
The first image (above) is the crew using time-lapse photography to spell out FAST 8 in the night sky, but the most exciting images show the cars – vehicles if you want because of that thing Hobbs has – that the principal characters will be driving in at least part of the movie.
We love these… do you?
Directed by Straight Outta Compton helmer F. Gary Gray, Fast 8 is planned to launch a new trilogy of films when it hits theaters on April 14, 2017. Fast 8 will be followed by a ninth film to be released April 19, 2019 and a tenth film planned to hit theaters April 2, 2021. Fast and Furious 8, 9 and 10 aren’t the only films new that Universal has planned for the franchise, either. It was recently revealed that plans are underway for both Fast and Furious spinoffs and prequels.
The Fast 8 cast is confirmed to include franchise regulars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky, Nathalie Emmanuel and Lucas Black reprising their roles as street racers-turned-international criminals-turned-super-secret agents. Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell are confirmed to return as well. Charlize Theron is confirmed to play the villain, with Kristofer Hivju as one of her henchmen. Scott Eastwood will be playing a protégé of Russell’s Mr. Nobody and Dame Hellen Mirren has also joined the cast.
A Universal Pictures release, Fast 8 is filming in Iceland, New York, Atlanta and Georgia with reports also suggesting that Russia could be utilized as well.
