Fast & Furious 7 had broken all records, and while the death of Paul Walker did play some role in its success, it wasn’t the entire story. Fast & Furious 8 is already on the card, and the producers are not shying from making sure that the upcoming film is a bigger deal than the previous one.
Fast & Furious 8 has already created a huge buzz on the internet since it became the first Hollywood film to be shot in Cuba. The developing relationship between the countries, thanks to the initiatives of Barrack Obama, saw the film getting the opportunity to create history.

The official Facebook page of the film is full of updates from the film, and they are sure to fill the hearts of the fans with sheer joy.

Dennis McCarthy, the vehicle coordinator of Fast & Furious 8, has uploaded a video showing all the cars that will be included in the movie. There were rumors that Fast & Furious 8 will use vintage cars this time round, and the video by McCarthy shows cars like Lexus, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, Chevrolet, Audi and Ford.
Movie News Guide reported that the garage of McCarthy has cars worth $17 million, and they are all protected. The collection even boasts of cars that had been confiscated from criminals. Apart from the cars, Dennis McCarthy, also showed off a Fast Attack Vehicle and a helicopter, which hints at the fact that the Fast & Furious 8 will include some action involving the military.
The Fast & Furious franchise is known for using expensive cars and given the video that the fans have now been privy to, there are no doubt that Dom Toretto and his team will have the best machines to ride in air, land and even water. Yes, the Fast & Furious 8 will cover water this time round, and they have a boat that can get to the speed of 170 mph and costs a whopping $1 million.
Fast & Furious 8 will be directed by F. Gary Gray and it will the first time that the cast will come together since Paul Walker passed away in 2013. Yes, it was obviously sad to come back to shoot for a film from the Fast & Furious franchise, but life has to move on, and the previous film saw to it that the legacy of Paul Walker continues within the franchise.
There were a lot of rumors that suggested that Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner will be included in Fast & Furious 8 with the help of CGI. While this had excited a few of his fans, a majority of them didn’t want that.
They knew that the CGI will never be able to do justice to his character, and they were happier with the fact that Fast & Furious 7 decided to give his character a happy ending unlike in real life.
Fast & Furious 8 will see Dwayne Johnson play a crucial role. He is reportedly working real hard to get back into shape for the film and had to shoot many of his scenes in Baywatch with his shirt on since he was working out for Fast & Furious 8. Cinema Blend has reported that even Kurt Russell will be included as Mr. Nobody in Fast & Furious 8.
