Fast and Furious 8 will debut in the American cinemas on April 14, 2017. The Brazilian, German, Dutch, British, Norwegian, Swedish, Turkish and Polish premier dates have already been set as well. The list of the officially-announced actors contains only Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham. But we would bet major money that Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Ludacris will also be in the eighth episode.

Earlier, the star and producer of the series, Vin Diesel was also mentioned as a potential director, but it has turned out that the eighth episode will be directed by a newcomer in the franchise, F. Gary Gray, who is an experienced director. Gray has directed films such as the Samuel L. Jackson – Kevin Spacey-thriller, "The Negotiator," ""A Man Apart (starring Diesel) and "The Italian Job," the comedy titled," Be Cool," and "Law Abiding Citizen" with Gerard Butler.

Gray’s last film, "Straight Outta Compton," is a drama that shows the beginning of the careers of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E and others. This summer it was a great blockbuster in America. And not only the audiences but the critics loved it as well, and the production cost only from $30 million, but brought an income of $200 million worldwide.

In 2001, Fast and Furious was set in Los Angeles, but later the crew traveled to Florida, Tokyo, South America, England, Spain and Abu-Dzabi as well.
