It is the first film of the franchise other than Tokyo Drift (2006) not to star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash on November 30, 2013. Main characters like Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson AKAThe Rock and Ludacris will be part of the cast.
Fast 8 is going to introduce new villains, Charlize Theron and Oscar winner Helen Mirren, as far as we know. Charlize Theron played as Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road and the Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju is likely to act as her henchman.
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.
As all of the movies in this film series have had a PG-13 rating, Fast 8 is most likely to have a PG-13 rating. Filming of Fast 8 started in March 2016 in Mývatn, Iceland. Filming took place in Cuba, Cleveland, Atlanta, and New York.
