Come on, you didn’t really think ‘Furious 7’ was the end, right? After breaking almost every box office record and scoring big with critics, there was no way the franchise was going to throw in the towel.
Vin Diesel surprised everyone at CinemaCon yesterday with a huge announcement. He revealed that they are planning to bring the next Fast & Furious movie into theaters April 14, 2017.
And honestly, that date is a little surprising. We knew an eighth film would happen, but we don’t think anyone was expecting it to happen this soon.
The official title for the film hasn’t been released, but we have been hearing some rumors about what might be happening in this latest installment. We know a good portion of the movie will take place in New York.
We are also hearing that Eva Mendes will return as Agent Fuentes, which makes sense because the government will play an even bigger role in this next film. Kurt Russell’s brilliant “Mr. Nobody” character will also be returning.
That’s all we know at the moment, but more information will be coming out soon. It will be interesting to see how successful this next movie is.
Will people still be interested in it after the perfect ending we saw in Furious 7?
