If there is one film that broke all the records worldwide in action thriller drama this year then “Fast & Furious 7” is the only name that will come to the mouth of every moviegoers. After the success of the “Fast 7,” the team is heading up for “Fast and Furious 8.” There are a lot of speculations going on for the eighth instalment. Read more for inside details:

The “Furious” franchise lost Paul Walker in a tragic car accident. It was earlier reported by many media giants that Paul’s brother, Cody Walker shot the remaining Paul’s scenes. The production team then used CGI to make Cody look a lot like his brother Paul. Although, on the first day of screening of “Furious 7,” Vin Diesel paid tribute to his best friend, Paul Walker after claiming that there will be a “Furious 8.”


In “Furious 8,” Vin Diesel will be reprising his role as Dom and along with him, alumni of previous films will also play some major roles. The alums include, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Luke Hobbs, Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Toretto, Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw, and Eva Mendes as US Customs Agents Monica Fuentes.

According to Movie Pilot, new characters are also linked for the upcoming “Fast & Furious 8.” Among them is the famous Ruby Rose, the star of “Orange is the New Black.” There are official reports that Ruby Rose has already auditioned to be a part of the “Fast & Furious” franchise but her character is not yet revealed by anyone. There are other reports that contradict this, as Ruby Rose has declined the offer for her resemblance to pop star Justin Bieber.


In the other news, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 37-years-old American actress Michelle Rodriguez said that she has really high hopes for “Furious 8” and she believes that even without Paul Walker, the film would be a success. According to her, the only reason why “Furious 7” had received so much respect and support was because the fans wanted to pay respect to their favorite Paul Walker.

Michelle Rodriguez, who plays the role of Letty Ortiz also said that it would be great if the studio brings one or two strong female actresses in the film and according to her, Angelina Jolie would be an amazing cast.

At this moment Ruby Rose’s role in the film is yet to be confirmed. What do you think of Angelina Jolie coming into the “Furious” franchise? Share your views in the comments below.
