Following the casting of Charlize Theron and Scott Eastwood, cameras have now started to roll on the upcoming action thriller Fast 8, the eighth installment in the mega-hit Fast and the Furious franchise.
Want to officially welcome my good bud and all around bad ass Charlize Theron to FAST & FURIOUS 8. When MTV asked her how she felt about coming in and playing the villain, her response was classic and the reason why I love that woman.. she said, “I’m coming to mess that shit up!” #WreckShit #BringIt #FF8 #DaddysGottaGoToWork
Both Dawyne Johnson and Scott Eastwood took to their Instagram accounts to confirm the start of filming, with Johnson standing side by side with Theron, and claiming that the Academy Award winning actress has confirmed that she’s coming to “mess this shit up.” Eastwood, on the other hand, showcased himself with director F. Gary Grey (Straight Outta Compton), and stars Tyrese Gibson and Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges on the set of Fast 8.
While production details are still sketchy, series star Vin Diesel has confirmed that Fast 8 will shoot in his hometown of New York City, and the film will see the return of Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw and Kurt Russell’s Mr. Nobody.
Fast 8 is set to reach cinemas on April 14, 2017.
