Eager fans of the ?Fast and Furious? franchise will unfortunately have to wait a little more as speculations of the 8th film of the movie series could be delayed. Recent rumors have been surfacing online stating that the ?Fast and Furious 8? release date could be postponed due to main actor Vin Diesel focusing on another big screen film, according to Deadline.
Returning for another ?xXx? action-packed movie is ?Fast and Furious? star Vin Diesel. He recently announced on Social Media that he will be returning to the third ?xXx? franchise and that production will start December this year in the Philippines, posted by Deadline. This would be Vin Diesel?s first return to the franchise since 2002?s original ?xXx? and after 10 years of the movie?s hiatus.
