Earlier today via his official Facebook page, movie star, filmmaker, and all around cool nerd Vin Diesel has unveiled when Fast 8's trailer will drop!
Following the critical and box office success of the seventh installment in the Fast & the Furious. The blockbuster franchise is set to continue on even without its star Paul Walker, who tragically died in a car accident back in 2013. The eight installment in the franchise will mark the first film without Paul Walker starring since Tokyo Drift back in the mid 2000s.
To keep fans excitement high and the franchise fresh, Universal Studios has brought in big name talent in front of the camera and behind. The studio cast Charlize Theron as the film's main baddie, following her badass role in last year's incredible Mad Max: Fury Road, along with rising star Scott Eastwood and Oscar winner Helen Mirren. To top those cool castings, acclaimed filmmaker F. Gary Gray was also brought on to helm the new film.
According to Vin Diesel Fast 8 will mark the beginning of the final trilogy for the franchise, ending the entire street car racing/superhero/heist/crime saga at 10. Along with the image below, here is the insane full cast for the highly anticipated new sequel. Are you excited for the new film? Can they top Furious 7 or Fast Five?
