Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray has today shared via Instagram five different Fast 8 behind the scenes photos and videos, offering a look at a few of the vehicles that will be featured in the April 14, 2017 release! There’s also video of franchise newcomer Kristofer Hivju intensely watching playback alongside Gray. Check out all the new posts below!
A Universal Pictures release, Fast 8 is planned to launch a new trilogy of films. 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.
It looks like today’s Fast 8 behind the scenes posts are all part of the film’s Iceland sequence, although these segments are being filmed on a soundstage in Atlanta, Geogria. Principal photography is also planned to take place in New York, Atlanta and Georgia with reports also suggesting that Russia could be utilized as well.
