The Fate of the Furious also known as Furious 8, Fast 8 and Fast & Furious 8 (note) is an 2017 American action thriller film directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Chris Morgan. It is the sequel to Furious 7 (2015) and the eighth chapter in Universal Pictures' The Fast and the Furious franchise.
Vin Diesel's plans for an eighth installment were first announced in March 2015 when he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and announced that the film would be set in New York City. Preparations for the film began immediately after the release of Furious 7, with Vin Diesel, Chris Morgan, and producer Neal H. Moritz re-signing.
The film stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Scott Eastwood, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky, Kurt Russell, and Charlize Theron.
Production and principal photography began in March 2016 in locations such as Mývatn (Iceland), Havana (Cuba), Atlanta, Cleveland, and New York City, continuing the franchise's tradition of filming in exotics places around the world.
Plot: Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) are on their honeymoon, and Brian (Paul Walker) and Mia (Jordana Brewster) have retired from team, and the rest of the crew has been exonerated, the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when Cipher (Charlize Theron), a mysterious woman seduces Dom and forces him into the world of crime, he can't seem to escape, and a betrayal of those closest to him.
They will face trials that will test them as never before. From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, the elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world's stage, and to bring home the man who made them a family.
Before Fast 8's production was finished, Dwayne Johnson posted and infame note to his Instagram account (that later was erased), talking really bad about a member of the cast (Vin). After all these years of feud between them, there is not much more to say....at this point only Dwayne, Vin and God known what really happened between them.
Vin Diesel is not only Dom Toretto, Mark Sinclair also commonly known by his aka Vin Diesel is an American Actor, Director, Screenwriter, Producer and a bright mind able to create franchises of almost each of the films' character that he is being involved. A button is enough to test, 20 years ago Vin Diesel was the only worldwide actor to have tree franchises with his tree mayor rolls, Dom Toretto (2001), Riddick (2000) and Xander Cage (2002).
This is only my personal idea and I am not traying to change nobodies mind but I think that Dwayne Johnson was driven by his ego trying to step over someone else place with out remembering that the person that gave him many opportunities to grow as action movie star and also to become successful in his career and business is called Vin Diesel. The example is that after working and learning from Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson itself is creating franchises with almost all his characters.
I wish we all could see them working together again some day. Please Dwayne if you do not have nothing good to say about Vin Diesel, do not say it!, but also refrained yourself to say bad things about him and do not forget that there is something called gratitude that good heart's people is always happy to use in this kind of situations.
Last but not least a recompilation of Dom Toretto best moments.
As Vin Diesel like to say: All love always <3 one love. Stay tuned there is more to come.
