‘Fast And Furious 8’ Expected To Start Filming Earlier Than ‘XXX 3’

It looks like the anticipation building up towards the release of “Fast and Furious 8” will be sated earlier, or, at least earlier than fans of the “XXX” franchise, as it was recently reported that the internationally successful street-racing film will start shooting before “XXX 3.”

Christian Today reports that while Vin Diesel may in the future be working on an NBC television series based on the lore of the “Riddick” films (as well as “The Chronicles of Riddick 4”), he also got the third installment of “XXX” and “Fast and Furious 8” on his schedule. While each one of these projects may all be as equally exciting as the next, it seems that Vin Diesel will have to work on “FF8” first.

Reasons for this development are apparent: they state that IMDB has already reported the “FF8” release date for as early as 14 April 2017, with Gary F. Gray (“Straight Outta Compton”) directing. Also, out of all the major projects Diesel currently has in his line-up, “FF8” may be the one that is far deepest in pre-production. They further added that Diesel confirmed, in a recent interview on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” that the film will be shot primarily (for the first time) within New York. It’s to be noted that if a location has already been locked for the set, it will be more likely that “FF8” will begin filming first.

Parent Herald also reported numbers: the latest in the series “Fast and Furious 7“ have reportedly made upwards of $1.5 billion, and Universal Studios is more  likely to cash in around on this success (again) as soon as possible. On the other hand, the “XXX” franchise has not released anything for about a decade now.

“XXX 3” has no official release date as of yet, but, as mentioned, fans can expect “Fast and Furious 8” to hit theatres on April, 2017.
