Filming has officially began with F. Gary Gray (“Straight Outta Compton,” “The Italian Job”) as the new director. Vin Diesel confirmed that it will be set in New York City. Jason Statham will be back to reprise his role as Deckard Shaw and is expected to start filming in mid-April. He will reunite with “The Italian Job” co-star Charlize Theron who will play the bad girl in the eighth installment. While there is no synopsis yet, we imagine she could be the one who breaks Shaw out of prison.
We already can’t wait for the first few set photos to surface of our favorite Brit back in action.
