Vrooming Back for Eighths

It’s too massive not to: There will be an eighth entry in the Fast & Furious franchise.

Vin Diesel confirmed as much yesterday, at CinemaCon, the theater-owner convention f.k.a. ShoWest, scorching-hot on the feels of the success of Furious Seven, which has made more $1.1 billion dollars worldwide since coming out at the top of the month.

Fast and Furious 8 is due out on April 14, 2017. It will be directed by a helmer still TBD and feature a cast TBA in the wake of Paul Walkers passing, but it seems Dom & Co. will be speeding through the streets of New York.

Worth pointing out that the powers that be have long envisioned this as a 10-picture endeavor, so best wrap your head around that for good now.
