When the seventh installation of “Fast and Furious” was not done with its filming, Paul Walker died in a road accident on Nov. 30, 2013, at the age of 40. After exactly two years of his unexpected death, “Furious 8” actor Tyrese Gibson took to social media for paying tribute to his former co-star and friend.

“It’s still not easy…… 2 years ago today… We lost our brother….. Today I’m just gonna lay low and process….. Clarity through Prayers and perspective is what I always seek and pray for…. With a heavy heart, I post this….. Please continue to pray for the Walker family and his real friends who were with him every single day…” Gibson captioned one of his photographs earlier taken with Walker.

According to Yibada, just a few days before Walker’s second death anniversary, his father filed a lawsuit against Porsche, the luxury car giant, with a claim that the company was responsible for negligence for having multiple design flaws. However, the company totally denied responsibility for the deadly accident caused to Walker by elaborating that all the damages and injuries claimed were the outcomes of the actor’s comparative fault.

Latin Post reports that Vin Diesel, who is best known for his character Dominic Toretto in “Fast and Furious” franchise, wants Helen Mirren to be a part of the eighth installation.

Diesel shared his future plan to see the 70-year old Oscar-winning actress in “Furious 8” during his recent interview with MTV at a press day for the recently released movie “The Last Witch Hunter.”

“They’ve gotta get in line behind Helen Mirren. She is on the list. Be careful what you wish for, Helen,” Diesel said.

According to Master Herald, Diesel refused to disclose the name of the characters of the upcoming “Fast and Furious 8,” which would reportedly have the chance of a prequel or spinoff.

“Fast and Furious 8” is slated to hit the big screen on Apr. 14, 2017.
