Fast & Furious 8 Has Found Its Director!

It seems Fast & Furious 8, or maybe it will also be shortened as Furious 8, has found its director in F. Gary Gray. The director was a frontrunner for the job after his film Straight Outta Compton turned into a huge success even though some reports stated that his relationship with Vin Diesel was strained due to the work on “A Man Apart”, but it seems that was a thing of the past.[1]

He certainly knows how to have a family dynamic in a film, something the Fast & Furious franchise is quite notable for, but it will be interesting to see if the eight entry will be able to make more than Furious 7 did. The director was also rumored to direct Black Panther, but as reports state they are focusing on the script, it could still happen, as FF8 is planned to hit theaters in April 14, 2017.

What do you think of this? Looking forward to more after the last one? Voice your opinion in the comics!
