Fast and Furious 8 is on and it is going to take to the streets of Cuba. This is a huge news for the fans of the franchise as well as all Hollywood cinema buffs. As one knows, no Hollywood production was allowed inside the country and Fast and Furious 8 is going to become the first film to ever be shot there.
The fans had been lapping up the behind-the-scene video that had been released online, but the same has been removed since then because it violated copyright issue.
The producers weren’t ready to use a graphics model of Havana and have their film shot with a generated background of the city. They wanted the authentic Cuban feel and hence made everything possible to make sure that Fast and Furious 8 was shot in the country.
Fast and Furious 8 is going to try something new this time. They are going to deal with vintage cars and Universal Pictures has shared a video from the set of the movie to give the fans a feel of it.
The video is introduced by Vin Diesel, who is an actor as well as a producer for the film and he states that Fast and Furious 8 is going to be the first film to make use of the improving ties between USA and Canada.
Fast and Furious 7 was a huge success and it was the one during the filming of which actor Paul Walker met with an accident. He couldn’t be there to complete his part for the film and, hence, the whole team had to rework the plot to make sure that his character of Brian O’Conner would at least get a happy ending in the film.
Paul Walker was shown leaving the gang to start a new life with his wife and kids. The last part of the film, the role of Paul Walker was shot by his brother, Cody Walker and with the help of computer graphics. Paul Walker and Vin Diesel are the faces of the franchise and fans are heartbroken to know that Paul Walker will not be a part of the eighth installment.
There have been speculations that Paul Walker’s character will be brought on screen in Fast and Furious 8 with the help of computer graphics.
While some fans are happy with the news, there are some who claim that no matter how detailed the specifics of the computer generated model is, it will never be the same as the real actor and hence they do not want to tarnish the image of the great actor and would rather see his story end with Fast and Furious 7.
Christian Today has reported that Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock has been preparing himself for the role of Agent Luke Hobbs. Hobbs is going to become a force to reckon with and he has revealed photos on Instagram to show his fans how he has been working hard towards it.
