Vin Diesel has shared the first teaser poster for the eighth film of the Fast and Furious franchise on Instagram. The upcoming F&F film is now officially titled Fast 8 and will definitely arrive in April 2017. It had been previously announced as an April 14, 2017 theatrical release, but the poster only confirms the month and year so it may have moved off the 14th. The poster also shows that the film will be set in New York.
F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) is attached to direct and F&F fans can expect the full cast to return. The tagline promises “New Roads Ahead” for the eight film of the series and the first to shoot in full following the death of franchise star Paul Walker. Walker died in a car crash during the filming of Furious 7, with his brother stepping in as a stand-in for scenes that hadn’t been completed before he passed away.
