Fast and Furious 8 Is Happening Says Diesel [Spoilerish]

Fast and Furious 8
Fast and Furious 7  star Vin Diesel teased the future of the Fast & Furious franchise while appearing on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday. Diesel revealed that the eighth movie would feature many of the new actors introduced. 

"I always think of these films multiple pictures in advance," Diesel, 47, explained. "I think of them as trilogies. So Kurt Russell came in for this movie, but he was really hired because of a story that follows this, that takes place in New York."

Before his role in Furious 7 Kurt Russell had a lengthy history of action films ranging from Big Trouble in Little China to Escape from New York. In one of his last roles, Russell played the murderous Stuntman Mike in Quintin Tarantino’s Death Proof. In Furious 7, Kurt Russell plays a mysterious double agent named “Mr. Nobody.”

Furious 7 ties the prequel phase of the series to the original trilogy after Han’s murder (Sung Kang) in Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift.

In Fast 7 Toretto must reconvene the Family to defeat the terrorist Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), who is out for revenge after his brother, Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), was killed in the previous film. Meanwhile, the team must also stop a shady government official known only as “Mr. Nobody” from stealing a program that can turn any technical device into a weapon. With director James Wan  taking over the wheel, the news of a new direction for Fast & Furious 8 comes as no surprise.

Furious 7 opens in theaters April 3.
