This would really rev up the Fast and the Furious franchise!
Furious 7 was one of the most successful movies of 2015 so it comes as no surprise that the sequel Fast 8 is looking to kick things up a notch by adding another A-lister.
While the high speed movies have already had MASSIVE stars attached like Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jason Statham, we're happy to hear more major talent could be joining the crew!
Deadline reports that director F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and screenwriter Chris Morgan are looking for
The Fast and the Furious movies have been so successful that we're of course getting an eighth installment.
While Vin Diesel recently took to Instagram to share the title and poster for the speedy sequel (above), what many fans have been wondering is if Paul Walker's brothers, Cody Walker and/or Caleb Walker, might return in the sequel.
While several fans loved the ending of the seventh film, moviegoers have been speculating lately that Paul's brothers could return to give their late brother's character some more screen time — or even as brand new characters.
Well, Polygon reached out to Universal Pictures and got word on the brothers' involvement as a rep for the studio said:
Vin Diesel has played many badass characters over the years — but his most enthusiastic role might just be that time he was a salesman for Street Sharks!
Before he was the Iron Giant, Dom Toretto, or Groot, the actor spent his time in the mid '90s promoting the new line of Street Sharks toys!
And because the internet is our friend, a clip JUST surfaced that shows the Furious 7 star selling the merchandise at a 1994 toy fair!
In case you're not familiar, these half man/half shark crime fighting hybrids had a short lived animated series from 1994-1997 — and were basically total Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knockoffs!
In the clip, the soon-to-be actor showcases the new products — and his sound effects make the relatively lame toys look like must haves!
Srsly, Diesel's conviction made the fishy characters so badass that we're pretty sure his pitch alone is responsible for the short-lived Street Sharks craze!
Ch-ch-check out the video (below) to see what we mean!
Aaaaaaand we've got a title!
The actor posted a simple pic with no comment on the social network, but he revealed all we need to know about what's up with the next installment in the action series (below)!!!
This is the best casting news we've heard all year!
We could barely contain our excitement last year when Vin Diesel announced he would return as extreme sports star turned super spy in xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage!
But in the next installment of the series, some badass women are set to join Cage's squad!
According to reports, Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose are in talks to join the cast of the action film!
As for Diesel's love interest, Bollywood star Deepika Paduko will be making her Hollywood debut as a huntress who is also Cage's former lover! Steamy!
Samuel L. Jackson will also be returning as the head of the National Security Agency. The film will be shooting in Toronto and the Philippines, as production is set to start later this month!
It looks like this movie will have a ton of femme fatale characters — which one are YOU most looking forward to seeing on the big screen?
