From even very early on, even though Furious 7 remained in theaters, we knew Fast 8 would be placed in New York City and contend with the mysterious past of Kurt Russell’s lovable Mr. Nobody.
Since Diesel told in Furious 7, “I always think of these films as multiple pictures at a time.” In this particular tone it makes sense that the puzzling Russell character, who vanished in Furious 7 while sitting in a desert, would come back.
“Kurt Russell entered for this movie, but we actually chosen him for a scenario that follows this that takes place in New York.”
With the expose of the official name of Fast and Furious 8: “The Fate of the Furious,” came a mock for a new trailer. The first official outline for the film was also launched by Universal in a follow-up release. The press report mentioned that Furious 7 was the sixth-highest global release in history – so number eight has a good deal to live up to.
“Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game-and the others member of the team has been absolve-the encompass team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a strange woman (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t find a way to avoid and a betrayal of those nearest to him, they will deal with trials that will test them as never before.”
“From the coast of Cuba and the roadways of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our top-notch force will traverse the globe to prevent an agitator from releasing mayhem on the world’s stage and to bring home the man who caused them to be a family.”
It’s interesting to see that the role of Brian, performed by the passed away Paul Walker, has been simply “retired” in the storyline, instead of being dead in the franchise’s world. They have also completely bought into the concept that this is basically an A-Team or G.I. Joe type franchise now, calling the crew an “elite force” instead of street racers.
For The Fate of The Furious, Vin Diesel is accompanied by a returning all-star cast together with Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham, Nathalie Emmanuel, Tyrese Gibson, Elsa Pataky, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Kurt Russell. In addition to Theron, the series greets newcomers Scott Eastwood and Oscar winner Helen Mirren. The film is directed by F. Gary Gray and produced by returning producers Neal H. Moritz, Michael Fottrell and Diesel.
