With the help of emotional franchise star Vin Diesel the actor announced the release date of Fast and Furious 8 at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Universal has set the date for April 14th, 2017. It’s safe to say that Vin Diesel and a majority of the cast will be returning. The seventh installment has already earned over a billion dollars in box office worldwide, in only a couple of weeks of release. There’s been talk of the film being set in New York City, and could see the return of Eva Mendes‘ character from 2 Fast 2 Furious.
A director hasn’t been named but it’s expecting that news could break at anytime, it’s looking very unlikely that either James Wan or Justin Lin will be able to direct.
