Fast 8 Filming Hits Halfway, Mirren Photo

As filming continues on the upcoming eighth “Fast and Furious” film, two new videos are out from the set to announced the halfway mark of filming. The first clip boasts lots of car crash and chase action, the second has Dwayne Johnson winding up extras in his prison scenes in the film.

In addition two further stills from the production have arrived, one showcasing Johnson’s Hobbs being the bad ass that he is. The other is a shot of Helen Mirren and Vin Diesel between takes on set.

Directed by “Straight Outta Compton” helmer F. Gary Gray, “Fast 8” is the first in a proposed new trilogy of films and hits cinemas on April 14th 2017.

I know you guys can see it… I have so much damn FUN playin’ the character of HOBBS. A man who lives by a code of ethics, but who will also rip your throat out and give it back to you just so you can apologize for pissin’ him off. For years our #FastAndFurious writer Chris Morgan, our @sevenbucksprod’s producer Hiram Garcia and myself would always talk about how insanely FUN FOR THE FANS a “Hobbs prison breakout” scene would be – wrecking every fool that’s in his way. Well that day has come, which is why I’m completely iced in my veins and amped out of my f*cking mind in this vid and clearly in need of a horse tranquilizer. Let Toretto and his friends preach family and love… Not HOBBS. The Iceman cometh. And he don’t fucketh around. #OnSet #Fast8 #Iceman
