There’s a lot of news of involving Fast and Furious 8 and they are creating a major buzz online with reports suggesting that Paul Walker’s Brian O’ Connor will be returning in the upcoming sequel.
After the death of series’ favorite Paul Walker, a lot of hearts were shattered and fans of this franchise were deeply saddened. His character Brian O’ Connor was given a final exit in Furious 7 and it all wrapped up into a proper send-off. Cody Walker, the brother of Paul Walker stepped in to complete the job of his brother in Furious 7.
In the last scene of Furious 7, we saw him parting ways with his longtime friend Dominic Toretto and the entire street/racing criminal scene, driving off in his white Toyota Supra. As a result, fans expected this to be the end of Brian O’ Connor’s character in the Fast and Furious franchise.
However, recently fans got pretty excited when there were rumors suggesting that Jordana Brewster, who played Mia Walker, will be returning in the upcoming movie. Various reports and speculations erupted a week ago, suggesting Jordana Brewster’s comeback along with the possible return of Brian O’ Connor.
She might return to play Mia, Dom’s little sister, in the upcoming eighth installment of this franchise. Sadly, her return hasn’t been confirmed yet but during an interview, she revealed that she might make a comeback and is certainly not ruling out any possibilities. Meanwhile, people are expecting that with Mia’s return, Brian is sure to make a comeback.
According to Christian Post, Brian O’ Connor will be appearing in the movie in the form of flashbacks and rumors indicate that the scenes might be shot by utilizing CGI, in order to bring Paul Walker’s character back alive.
This isn’t something new as we already know how unfinished scenes in Furious 7 were taken over by his brother Cody and with the help of CGI, the makers managed to complete the scenes which featured Paul Walker.
However, Christian Post reported that with Cody’s name being removed from the list of actors featured in the official IMDB page of the movie, this is one comeback that seems quite impossible. Right now, it’s best to keep your fingers crossed and wait for Fast and Furious 8 to hit theaters on 14th April 2017.
In other news, there’s good reason to believe that Ronda Rousey will be returning to kick some ass in Fast and Furious 8.
At this point, it is seriously expected that any upcoming Fast and Furious movie will feature a female showdown, similar to what we saw in Furious 7 with Ronda Rousey, who played Kara, and Michel Rodriguez, who played Letty Ortiz. People are already suspecting that Rousey will be returning in Furious 7 sequel.
During various interviews with the actress and female wrestler, she discussed about Fast and Furious 8 and decided to keep her association alive, with the franchise. During a recent interview, she even talked about how a very good female MMA wrestler could be made out of Vin Diesel’s daughter.
Hania, Vin Diesel’s 7-year old daughter is actually training with Ronda Rousey. During a recent interview, Rousey was asked about who she would like to face as a strong contender in the upcoming installment.
