Hollywood star Vin Diesel has shared the first picture of the upcoming film Fast and Furious 8. The 48-year-old actor shared the picture on his Instagram page which shows the bird-eye view of New York City, according to Aceshowbiz. The photo features New York’s skyscrapers including the iconic Empire State Building.
“New Roads Ahead,” the image read. In Fast 8, Diesel will return in the lead role. He will be joined by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson, with Jason Statham and Kurt Russell expected to return. F Gary Gray will helm the movie scheduled to hit theaters on April 14, 2017.
There have been reports that Fast and Furious 8 will shoot in Cuba, a country that Hollywood has not ventured in more than 50 years. Multiple sources say that F Gary Gray, the director of Fast and Furious 8, returned from a scouting trip which included the previously embargoed nation, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
The studio chose F Gary Gray after it had narrowed down the search to four directors, including The Guest’s Adam Wingard, Now You See Me helmer Louis Leterrier and Will Eubank.
