The latest batch of rumors suggest that the character of Sean Boswell, who was one of the frontline characters of Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift will play a major role in the upcoming movie. This character was played by Lucas Black and he is expected to come back to reprise his role once again for Fast 8.

Apart from Lucas Black, Fast 8 will reportedly feature other characters from Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drifty in it. Vin Diesel’s character Dominic Toretto was seen visiting Tokyo in Fast and Furious 7 after Han played by Sung Kang was killed by Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw.

Some reports even suggest that Sean Boswell will be the new right hand of Dominic Toretto.
