F. Gary Gray Likely To Rejoin Vin Diesel For FAST AND FURIOUS 8

In the hours since it was reported that the search for a dirppector for the eighth and next installment of the Fast And Furious saga wound down to four directors, franchise actor and producer Vin Diesel shared the following photo on his fan page, seated among a collage of pictures with director F. Gary Gray opposite him:

Having stated several days ago he would announce a director on his fan page, it seems likely that Gray will be taking the helm from Furious 7 director James Wan to push the next installation forward. The film would evidently reunite Gray with Diesel and returning actor Jason Statham since directing both actors respectively roughly twelve years ago in A Man Apart and The Italian Job, as well as further lend a leg up for Universal in the wake of Gray's successful biopictoral hip-hop drama, Straight Outta Compton.

Franchise regular Dwayne Johnson is also expected to return along with the usual cast members pending official updates. Pre-production is just around the corner with principal photography expected to start next Spring ahead of its April 14, 2017 release.

Stay tuned!
