Jason Statham Returning For “Furious 8”


It seems Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw villain from “Furious 7” will be returning for the next outing in the series.

Speaking with Access Hollywood, the British action star says that despite his character being left to rot in a high security prison at the end of the last film, he’ll be back for the eighth movie in the series:

“We’re already talking about doing another one, Part 8. I’m a newcomer! I just got invited to the party in this last one so it’s nice to know I’m gonna be doing another… They’ve always got something good up their sleeve, and I don’t want to be the one who spoils the plot lines but there is some great stuff I already know about.”

“Furious 7” has so far taken in over $1.5 billion worldwide. Universal is already targeting an April 14th 2017 release for the next film.
