The release of Fast & Furious 8 is just around the corner, and as far as we have heard, it is the best Fast and Furious film in the franchise. It’s been 16 years since the first film came to the theaters. It is the eighth installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise and is the first film in the franchise that will not star Paul Walker. The actor died in an accident on November 30, 2013, while filming for the previous films Furious 7 (2015). The new film is being dedicated to Paul Walker, Diesel had said.
Diesel had announced that an eight film is coming at the Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 2015. He also disclosed that the film is primarily set in the city of New York. Later that year, F. Gary Gray – best known for directing Straight Outta Compton (2015) – was announced as the director of the new film replacing James Wan who had directed the previous. Subsequently, the principle photography for the film began in places like Atlanta, Myvatn, Havana, Cleveland and New York City. While we wait for the film to come up, let’s talk about the film being dedicated to the late Paul Walker.
During the premiere of the Furious 7 in 2015 spoke about the possibility of a sequel and that Walker believed that a sequel would happen and therefore if it does happen then it’ll be dedicated to Paul Walker.
“I was trying to keep it close to the vest throughout the release. Paul Walker used to say that [an eighth film] was guaranteed. And in some ways, when your brother guarantees something, you sometimes feel like you have to make sure it comes to pass… so if fate has it, then you’ll get this when you hear about it. [Furious 7] was for Paul, [the 8th film] is from Paul,” said Diesel.
One of the most exciting aspects of the film is the entrance of a new character named Cipher who’ll be played by Charlize Theron. As far as we have heard Chiper will be the villain and a driving force behind the new film. Speaking of the official summary, when Fast & Furious 8 begins we’ll see the old gang settled and happily leading their lives. In fact, everything looks so sunny and well balanced that you could almost smell something soon going wrong. One doesn’t have to wait for long for things to go bonkers. The woman enters into Dom’s life and then corrupt him to go against his own friends as well as family.
Everyone, of course, is baffled as to how could Dom go against them. Everyone first resisted and then went on to hate him then. It remains to be seen why Dom has gone against his folks or whether he is just playing Cipher. Being fans of the Fast & Furious 8, we are pretty excited for the film to come out. It remains to be seen how much money the eight installments will be making for the franchise.
