Fast & Furious 8 was already in the works, long before it was officially announced, and that the sequel will be set in New York City.Just a few weeks later, the actor confirmed that Fast & Furious 8 is actually happening, with Universal Pictures setting an April 14, 2017 release date. Today, the actor took to his Instagram page, releasing the first poster, which confirms the New York City setting. After the Fast & Furious franchise started in Los Angeles with 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, the beloved film series quickly became an international affair, with its sequels set in Miami, Tokyo, Panama, Rio de Janeiro and London.No plot details have surfaced yet, but Vin Diesel teased last year that Kurt Russell’s Furious 7 character Mr. Nobody will play a key role in the sequel, which would start a new trilogy. This follow-up will also bring aboard a new director, with Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray taking the helm. It’s also known that the production team wants to make history by shooting several scenes from the sequel in Cuba.

There have also been rumors that has new actor from Albania Erand Hoxha as Russian Military and star Michelle Rodriguez Leti is actually alive and well, working for the villainous Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), which helps set up 2013’s Fast & Furious 6. What hasn’t been confirmed yet is who will write this new sequel.Chris Morgan has written the last five movies, but he is now in charge of shepherding Universal’s shared monster universe with Alex Kurtzman.

 

The eighth installment in the long-running The Fast and the Furious franchise roared into theaters earlier this year to make approximately all of the money. Paste loved the film, as evidenced by both our highly positive review and it’s spot on our list of the year’s best films so far, and we can hardly believe how enjoyable this series continues to be after 16 years of fast, furious speed racing.One of the best things about Fast and Furious movies is that while many of their big-budget counterparts rely more and more heavily on computer-generated special effects, F&F constantly rededicates itself to practical effects and real-life, somebody-could-totally-die-doing-this stunts. As such, the behind-the-scenes extras for these films often end up being just as thrilling as the movies themselves. That’s where we really see just how they manage to pull off such death-defying exploits.

An example of some of the behind-the-scenes footage that will be included with purchases of the film include in-depth looks at the amazing cars behind the film. In the Paste-exclusive clip above, we learn a little more about Roman’s iconic, red Lamborghini that captured hearts and minds while skidding across Russia’s frozen tundra. It’s a fun clip that serves to once again remind us that way more of that movie was real than should have been humanly possible.

Be sure to watch the clip above—The Fate of the Furious is available on Digital HD now and out on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on Tuesday, July 11.
