Vin Diesel Shares Fast & Furious 8 Movie Poster
The actor took to Facebook tonight to share a movie poster for the Fast & Furious franchise’s upcoming installment, and it only reminds us that much more that we’ll be missing one familiar face.
“New Roads Ahead,” the poster reads above a photo of Diesel looking somber into the distance, making us believe that he’s standing there longing for his road dog Paul Walker, who passed away in November 2013. The text continues with, “Furious 8. April 14. In Theaters and IMAX.”
Diesel recently revealed that fans of the films will have a lot more to look forward to, when he announced on Instagram that there would be an entire trilogy, rounding out the franchise to an even 10.
Fast 8 is set for release Apr. 14, 2017, while Fast 9 and Fast 10 are hitting theaters on Apr. 19, 2019, and Apr. 2, 2021, respectively.
Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray is taking charge on the next installment, announcing the news on social media.
“I could not have asked for better partners than Vin Diesel, Neal H. Moritz, & the Universal Studios Entertainment family,” he posted. “Together we are excited to bring you the next chapter in the Fast & Furious saga. #FastFamily.”
Charlize Theron and Scott Eastwood are set to join the franchise, while Michelle Rodriguez, Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson are signed on to reprise their roles.
Diesel promised fans that they’ll be happy with what’s to come, telling the audience at CinemaCon last year, “We’re gonna make the best movie you’ve ever seen.”
