Released in April 2 this year, “Furious 7” earned over $1 million in sales. This superb success encouraged the movie producer and director to work for the eighth installation titled “Fast And Furious 8,” which is so far declared to be released in April 14, 2017.
The most interesting fact of the upcoming “Fast and Furious 8” is the love triangle between Dominic Toretto, Letty Ortiz and Monica Fuentes. Eva Mendes will once again reprise her role as Undercover U.S. Custom Agent Monica Fuentes. This direct reappearance of Monica Fuentes from the second installment of the film will be the cause of a rift between Dominic Toretto and his longtime love, Letty Ortiz.
Mixed martial artists Ronda Rousey (current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion) and Joanna Jedrzejczyk (current UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion) will be joining the cast. Rousey played a character in seventh installation titled “Furious 7,” whereas 27-year old Jedrzejczyk will foray into acting and “Fast and Furious 8” will be her first film.
Some other stars like Statham, Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell will possibly act in the next installment; however, James Wan, the director of the movie, does not yet confirm them.
Vin Diesel, the movie’s spokesperson, is known for mainly promoting the movie franchise. A few months ago, Diesel first released the “Fast and Furious 8” logo through his Instagram account. He said that during the filming of ‘Furious 7,” the entire team had incurred a big loss with the unexpected demise of the actor Paul Walker, and this movie will be a tribute to him, reported Ecumenical News.
