Video From 1st Day of Filming Fast 8

The crew are back for Universal Pictures Fast 8, as evidenced from this video featuring the first time Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his team are together for the shoot. The video gives you some brief glimpses of Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood, Jason Statham and Nathalie Emmanuel, as well as Dwayne Johnson (flexing, no less). The feature image was provided by Johnson on his Instagram page, the first shot of him in character as Hobbs. 

Joining the Fast franchise regulars is Charlize Theron as your villain and Kristofer Hivju as one of her henchmen. Scott Eastwood will be playing a protégé of Russell’s named Mr. Nobody.

Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray is the man in charge. Fast 8 is due in theaters on April 14, 2017, with Fast 9 already slated for an April 19, 2019 release, and, yup, a tenth film in April of 2021. There's also word of spinoffs and prequels.
