Fast and Furious 7 has only been in cinemas for a few weeks and it seems its creators are already gearing up for the next Fast and Furious 8 movie.
Last weekend Fast and Furious 7 became the fastest movie in history to generate $1 billion in revenue, so it’s no surprise Universal Studios is keen to keep the cash train moving. A tweet from the official Fast and Furious 7 Twitter account has confirmed that the next instalment in the franchise is due to hit cinemas globally on Friday the 14th of April 2017, just under two years from now. This latest news comes after Vin Diesel who plays the character Dominic Toretto said in an interview that “Fast and Furious 7 was for Paul, eight will be from Paul.”
Obviously plot details are very limited at the moment, but without the late Paul Walker who has played the movie’s main character for almost fifteen years the next movie will likely be very different from previous instalments. Early hints from Vin Diesel suggest Fast and Furious 8 might be based in New York. We’ll no doubt learn more details in the coming months.
