The latest in the Fast and the Furious series, tagged as Fast 8, is now officially called The Fate of the Furious. The compelling story of friends, who have treated each other like family, will face a catastrophe they never expected to happen. The eighth installment in the Fast and the Furious franchise will deal with the leader of the group turning to the enemies and abandoning the people he once considered as family.
Dominic (Vin Diesel) will be seduced into the menacing world of crime and robbery, but this time around, without the company of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Brian (Paul Walker) and sister Mia (Jordana Brewster). Dom is about to merge with the villains headed by Cipher (Charlize Theron) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham).
Fast 8 Plot
The plot of The Fate of the Furious states that ?Now that Dom 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 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.?
Prior to the development of Fast 8, Vin Diesel was quoted saying ?I was trying to keep it close to the vest throughout the release. Paul Walker used to say that [an eighth film] was guaranteed. And in some ways, when your brother guarantees something, you sometimes feel like you have to make sure it comes to pass… so if fate has it, then you’ll get this when you hear about it. [Furious 7] was for Paul, [the eighth film] is from Paul.?
Fast 8 Cast
That being said, The Fate of the Furious, also known as Fast 8, has the late Paul Walker?s memory intact and so much part of the movie. The returning cast of the movie includes Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto, Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz, Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs, Tyrese Gibson as Roman Pearce, Ludacris as Tej Parker, Lucas Black as Sean Boswell and Kurt Russell as Frank Petty.
