Fast cars, beautiful women and a pumped-up Vin Diesel. Fast and Furious 8 has officially started shooting in Cuba, a first for any American film since 1961, and it seems the country has been taken over by cars.
Make it cars and Vin Diesel. The franchise’s Dom Toretto was everywhere – pumping the air, posing for selfies and keeping the tempo high. He was accompanied by film’s star Michelle Rodriguez as they drove down Havana’s roads in a 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser.
Director F Gary Grey was close on their heels, capturing the action on the camera. The 48-year-old action star told media: ‘Right now I’m with my director F. Gary Grey. We worked together maybe 17 years ago. And we’re at a place that nobody ever thought would be possible.”
Dom is supposed to have Cuban roots so this is a sort of a homecoming for Vin’s character. “We’re just really proud to be here, man. This is paradise. We’re in Cuba, where the Torettos started. It’s Fast 8,” the actor told Daily Mail.
