Scott Eastwood (starred in Suicide Squad) is a newcomer in this franchise too. We guess he may end up as a major ally to Dom and his team. Tokyo Drift hero, Sean Boswell may return to the franchise.In 2015 film Furious 7, Jason Statham was a newcomer, he played as Deckard Shaw. In last June, he said, “We’re already talking about doing another one, part eight, and I’m a newcomer. I just got invited to the party in this last one, so it’s nice to know that I’ll be doing another.”We saw Deckard being placed in a high security jail by Hobbs in Furious 7, and in Fast 8, a prison break may happen.
