Releasing in 2017.
First big news: Who bet on Charlize Theron being in talks to join the movie?
Can't believe it took reading that "Fast and Furiousa" comment for me to finally make the Mad Max connection.
she'd better be driving a kick ass big rig
So....is the Team Dom going to go to space?
I'd only watch that if George Miller directed the film. No other action director working in Hollywood today is fit to lace his boots after the glory that is Fury Road.
Eh, James Wan did a damn good job. Not as good as Miller, no, but more than good enough.
And our villains are...
Is the plan to continue alternating words in the franchise's title?
There are other words in the title, y'know. When are we going to get The 9? Or Ampersand 10? The (The Second One) 11?
They should have called the movie The Furious 8.

The Fast 8 The Furious. It's about cannibalism.
I like to think that the F&F producers (Furious 7) have already matched Tarantino (The Hateful 8) and... Sandler (The Ridiculous 6).
AT the very least, I'm glad that the director for this movie is someone with an experience of directing a driving movie (The Italian Job remake).
Scott Eastwood is in it.
I...actually want to see this now.
I'd heard rumours about Helen Mirren getting the villain role a long time ago, but I down for Theron if she's the main villain (which it sounds like she is). I don't this these movies have done a female main villain before.
You know what, I actually want this one to keep 6th and 7th movie's ridiculousness.
Furious 7 was the best superhero movie Universal Studios ever created.
Seriously, from Fast Five onwards, it would not be this franchise if it wasn't a bizarrely seamless merger of high-octane action thriller, big guys driving cars fast, and heartwarming sincerity uncharacteristic of modern filmmaking.
Nothing happens ironically in this franchise. When Dom hugs his family, gives a speech about the importance of togetherness, and then jumps a car off the Eiffel Tower to land on a space shuttle and stop a cryogenically frozen Soviety spy from bombing America, the franchise looks you straight in the eyes without the slightest hint of a self-aware shrug and goes, "Yeah. We just did that. You want to make something of it?"

Things I Want to See in Future Fast and Furious films #1:
Someone crashing a a fucking A-10 Warthog with a car.
It would be sinful as hell, but holy shit I would wet myself.

Video from Vin.
Furious 7 was titled in Japan as "Wild Speed: Sky Mission", which I thought was ball-bustingly awesome.
I wonder what kind of awesome alternate title 8th will get? I don't know, Wild Speed: Infinity Breakthrough?
This movie needs to have Dom ramp a car off a space station. I propose Mir.

Save space for 10. Unless they decide to go with time travel for that one.
EDIT: ...oh, wait, the Fast and Furious franchise is also Universal. They could do the most awesome crossover ever.

See I;m thinking they race actual 'The Time Machine' style time machines.
I wouldn't go quite that far.
I would love to see a scene where either a villain or hero crew is driving away from pursuers, and then they drive off the road...and they jump out of the car, open up their wingsuit, and glide away.
New behind the scenes video.
