“Fast and Furious 8,” the anticipated sequel to “Furious 7” and the last trilogy part of “Fast and Furious” franchise, is working hard to equalize the success of “Furious 7.” Although, there will be many of the old faces in the new trilogy which starts with “Fast and Furious 8,” it looks like Jordana Brewster won’t be one of them. Read On!
Jordana Brewster, who has previously played the role of Mia Toretto, was rumored to comeback. Addressing these rumors, Brewster had told Huffington Post Live via Bustle in the past, “I don’t know [if I’d do another film], but it’s always dependent on the fans. If they want one and if there’s an appetite for it. We never want to jump the shark!”
Vin Diesel, who will reprise his role of Dom Toretto and will serve as producer of “Fast and Furious 8,” has not confirmed her presence in the franchise.
In an interview with Toronto Sun, Tyrese Gibson, who will be playing the role of Roman Pearce in the upcoming “Fast and Furious” franchise has hinted towards Matt Damon’s entry. Gibson said, “There is definitely a number eight, yeah! And I want Matt Damon to join us!”
Gibson also further added, “They have flying cars now, so that could be interesting to incorporate. I could see Vin driving really, really fast in one of those itty-bitty car planes, like in The Jetsons cartoon.”
Also, Cody Walker, who played the CGI for his late brother Paul Walker’s character Brian O’ Connor, would not be returning for “Fast and Furious 8.” Cody Walker’s name has been removed from the official IMDb page of “Furious 8.” F.
