THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS (alternatively known as Fast & Furious 8, Fast 8, or Furious 8) is an upcoming 2017 action film directed by F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) and written by Chris Morgan (Wanted, Furious 7). It is the eighth installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise.
In the film, now that Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Charlize Theron) seduces Dom 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.
Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell. In addition to Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Oscar® winner Helen Mirren.
