'Fast 8' Nowhere Near Starting Line https://www.yahoo.com/movies/fast-8-nowhere-near-starting-line-115852135467.html
Can Universal keep the family together? Furious 7’s $392.3 million worldwide bow has made an eighth film in the racing saga a near certainty. But significant speed bumps exist. “Honestly, we’re just bathing in the success of this,” producer Neal Moritz tells THR. “We’ll probably get together in a week or so to talk.”Universal chairman Donna Langley said in 2014 that the studio would like to make 10 films, and according to multiple sources, that remains the plan. But no writer has been hired for the next outing — not that the lack of a script has held back the franchise before. The films tend to be designed backward: After a release date is set, producer-star Vin Diesel, 47, considered the keeper of the flame, works with scribe Chris Morgan, Moritz and a director to hash out a story, coming up with elaborate set pieces then fleshing out a narrative to connect the sequences.

Furious 8 is coming in 2017 http://www.theverge.com/2015/4/23/8486025/furious-8-is-coming-april-14th-2017
You knew this was coming. You just had to know this was coming. "One last ride," after all, is just a metaphor that means "just kidding there's still some fuel in the tank and the tires are in pretty good condition." Another Fast and Furious film. What also helps, of course, is that Furious 7 currently sits as the 7th highest-grossing film of all time (worldwide) and is still in theaters. Furious 8 is coming April 14th, 2017.The announcement was made by Vin Diesel at Cinema Con, who is calling it Furious 8 (as opposed to Fast and Furious 8 or something more integrated like F8st 8nd Furi8us). Earlier this month, Diesel said the new movie would be set in New York City — which is to say, we're gonna see a Dodge Challenger jump over Lady Liberty herself. No director has been announced; after shepherding the franchise to high-octane critical and commercial success, Justin Lin (Tokyo Drift through Fast 6) gave the reins to Saw alum James Wan for 7. Lin is probably too busy with Star Trek 3 to return while Wan is reportedly in the running for Aquaman. "What's Wes Anderson up to?" most of The Verge's New York office just asked out loud, only mostly joking.Dave McNary?

Dwayne Johnson confirms Furious 8 appearance, excited for possible Hobbs spinoff http://www.theverge.com/2015/5/17/8618359/dywane-johnson-furious-8-casting-confirmed
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is officially on board for the eighth installment of Fast and Furious, reports Collider. At a press conference promoting the brawny actor's new film, San Andreas, Johnson had a simple answer the question of whether or not he'd be in the upcoming Furious 8: "Of course. It can’t go on without Hobbs."That's not far from the truth. The former WWE star has quickly become one of the best parts of the Fast and Furious franchise since his first appearance in Fast Five. His combination of commanding screen presence and comedic delivery brings some much-appreciated levity to the overwrought series. The latest Furious 7 suffered, in part, due to his limited role." "It can’t go on without Hobbs.""In fact, he plays such key part of the series, that there's been rumors of a Hobbs-centered spinoff film, because the endless supply of Fast and Furious films definitely isn't enough. At the same press event, Johnson answered a question regarding a possible spinoff thusly:

Fast and Furious 8 http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Furi...fends-His-Family-Rare-Quiet-Moment-82017.html
Beyond that, this scene also provides newcomer Emmanuel, best known for her role as Emilia Clarke’s right hand lady Missandei on HBO’s Game of Thrones, with some more screen time. Her hacker character, Ramsey, who is responsible for creating a valuable piece of technology that escapes her control, which is the impetus for the whole Furious 7 story, doesn’t really have much to do in the final film. It’s kind of a waste, but this gives her something to work with, as she stands up for herself and pushes back at Dom as much as he pushes her. A scene like this could have given Ramsey some more emotional heft.While she doesn’t know for certain if she’ll be back for Furious 8, Nathalie Emmanuel does sound like she’s more than game to ride or die with Dom and the crew another time. She said, "I really hope that happens," and went on to praise the familial bond the cast shares off screen as well as on.

Vin Diesel Reveals How Many 'Fast And Furious' Movies There Will Be...There are no directors in place yet because "these matters have to be very carefully handled.".....http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...16ce4b0af3706dcbb54?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000592
After "Furious 7" became the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time, it seemed possible the franchise would drive on and on into infinity. But Vin Diesel is pumping the breaks -- somewhat. The actor recently posted a Facebook message to say that no directors have been given an offer to make the eighth "Fast and Furious" movie. More importantly, he dropped this nugget: "I promised the studio I would deliver one last trilogy to end the saga."With Universal's plan of 10 films in the series, that implies we have three more installments to anticipate, starting with "Furious 8" scheduled for April 14, 2017. Diesel wrote that the reason none of them have a director is because "this is too special a franchise, so these matters have to be very carefully handled." Behind the scenes, however, reports indicate everything may not be quite so sunny. Diesel posted the note two days after a Hollywood Reporter article rehashed the challenges of making "Furious 7," which took a toll on director James Wan's health, in part, sources reportedly say, because "Diesel proved extraordinarily difficult." (Wan passed on directing "Furious 8" so he could helm "The Conjuring 2.") Diesel is said to have held up production by questioning tiny details and holding late-night script sessions. Now, according to THR, some at Universal Pictures "fear" the actor might want to direct a "Furious" movie himself. Regardless, Diesel, who has been one of the franchise's producers since its fourth installment in 2009, promised his next Facebook post will announce the directors (plural). He didn't say when that would happen, but he did include a photo of himself grinning.

‘Fast & Furious,’: the show will go on -- without key stars http://www.marketwatch.com/story/fa...---without-key-stars-2015-09-29?siteid=yhoof2
Proof that Hollywood is relying more on sequels and less on original ideas? Just look at the announcements that two huge franchises, “Fast & Furious” and “Men in Black,” will go on with at least three more movies -- without one of their key stars.The latest “Fast & Furious” installment, “Furious 7,” had to be finished without leading actor Paul Walker after his death in a fiery car crash in 2013. “Furious 7” raked in a whopping $1.5 billion in box-office sales worldwide -- which led to widespread expectations that the show would continue to go on without Walker.There have been rumors that no one wants to direct the next Furious movies, but the franchise’s other leading star and producer Vin Diesel announced on his Facebook page: “I promised the studio I would deliver one last Trilogy to end the saga. I will announce the directors on my next post...” So stay tuned for that.
