Diesel hit social media and revealed the first promo image from Fast 8, and it confirms New York City as a primary locale. Captioned "New Roads Ahead", the film enters uncertain waters following the "retirement" of Walker's Brian O'Connor character, and hitting the Big Apple, something that has never happened before, is a good way to chart a different course. Filming is expected to take place in New York, Atlanta, Cuba, and more.
The series also has a new director to contend with in F. Gary Gray, who is coming off the success (albeit an Oscar snub) of Straight Outta Compton. But that's never slowed them down before and it's unlikely to do so this time. Fast 8 hits theaters April 14th 2017.
