Fast 8 Omaze campaign raising money for Paul Walker Foundation
As production continues on the upcoming eighth Fast and Furious film, Universal Pictures and Omaze are putting together a campaign to raise money for The Paul Walker Foundation with the entire Fast 8 cast. Those donating will be entered to win a trip for two to the set of the new movie in Atlanta, where the winner will go behind the scenes, meet Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Scott Eastwood and the rest of the cast, get an inside look (literally) at some of the world’s most badass cars, and be put up in a 4-star hotel. Check out the Fast 8 Omaze video below and donate now!
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.
