Well, it’s official. After months of shooting, FURIOUS 8 appears to be in the can. The studio, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and director F. Gary Gray have done a great job of letting fans peek in behind the scenes of this massive production, but hungry viewers will have to deal with the absence of any form of a production diary for the next few months.
As the film transitions from production to post-production, they’ll be shifting their focus into making the film as great as it can be in the editing room. But there’s no need to fret. Based on the post from the official Facebook page, it sounds like we’ll be hearing back from them in December for what we can assume will be the first trailer for the film.
Check out what the post had to say down below!
For our final #?FastFridays post, all of us in the Fast Family wanted to thank you for coming on the ride with us during this epic production.
We began in Cuba, visited Iceland, New York and Atlanta, and as we head into our final few days of shooting, we wanted to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to those who have worked so hard over the past 100 days to bring you a movie that is going to be another incredible installment of our saga. Everything we do comes from our shared passion to bring you the very best.
Thank you Vin, who has been at the wheel since this journey began, first as star and then as producer…
And thanks to all of the cast of the eighth Fast:
Michelle, whoâ€™s also been with us from the start…
Those whoâ€™ve joined our family along the way: Tyrese and Chris from Miami in our second film; Dwayne and Elsa, who came on board in Rio in movie five; Jason, Nathalie and Kurt from last time around; and our newest members Charlize, Scott, Kristofer and Helen…
And our brother who continues to inspire us all, Paul.
We extend our gratitude to our new director F. Gary Gray, producers Neal Moritz and One Race Films, writer Chris Morgan, and the hundreds of awesome, dedicated crew members who worked their asses off.
All of us take our work on Fast & Furious seriously, and we seriously intend to wow the world again. We’ll be back in December with your first look at what we’ve created for you.
— Your Fast Family
Hang tight, FAST & FURIOUS fans. We’re only a few short months away from seeing what this eight chapter in the saga has to offer. Will it be able to hold up after losing one of its stars? We’ll have to wait and see.
FAST & FURIOUS hits theaters on April 14, 2017.
