Fast 8 Begins Production in Cuba

Production on the eighth “Fast and Furious” film has moved to Cuba, the first studio film to shoot on the island since the U.S. placed an embargo on the nation in 1960s and kept it in place for five decades.

Aware of their luckiness to have that honor, director F. Gary Gray opted to welcome the extended “Fast and Furious” family to the island nation in style – posting online a video greeting to celebrate the start of production there. Much of the cast from the previous films return, joined by Charlize Theron and Scott Eastwood in this outing which hits cinemas next April.
