Fast 8 in New York City
The Fast and Furious Team are back next year and this time racing their high performance cars through the streets of New York City.
It is the 8th instalment in The Fast and the Furious franchise, and this time directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Chris Morgan. The cast consists of Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Elsa Pataky, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Lucas Black, Scott Eastwood, Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, and new comers Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron.
Plans for an 8th instalment were first announced in March 2015 when Diesel appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and announced that the film would be set in New York City. Preparations for the film began immediately after the release of Furious 7 with Diesel, Morgan and producer Neal H. Moritz re-signing. After setting an initial release date in the same month, casting took place between April and June 2015, with the remaining cast yet to be rounded out. In October 2015, Gray, best known for directing Straight Outta Compton, was announced to direct the film in place of James Wan, who had directed the previous film. Principal photography began in March 2016 in Mývatn, Iceland, with other filming locations including Cuba, Atlanta, Cleveland and New York.
As yet no official movie trailer has been released and as such otsoNY is unable to confirm any actual New York film locations. The film is scheduled to be released on April 14, 2017.
Fast 8 marks the first film of the franchise other than The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift not to star Paul Walker, who died in a single-vehicle crash on November 30, 2013.
