While we’ve had our fair share of updates from the set of F. Gary Gray’s Fast 8, what with all the videos and photos that been been rolling out as part of the “Fast Friday” updates, we still have yet to see anything official. And unfortunately, that won’t be changing any time soon.
The film has now wrapped production and as the last “Fast Friday” update, we got a lengthy post from the official Facebook page, thanking the cast of the film, along with all of the fans, and announcing that we’ll get to see the very first trailer for Fast 8 this December.
Here’s the full announcement from the Fast & Furious Facebook.
For our final #FastFridays post, all of us in the Fast Family wanted to thank you for coming on the ride with us during this epic production.
We began in Cuba, visited Iceland, New York and Atlanta, and as we head into our final few days of shooting, we wanted to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to those who have worked so hard over the past 100 days to bring you a movie that is going to be another incredible installment of our saga. Everything we do comes from our shared passion to bring you the very best.
Thank you Vin, who has been at the wheel since this journey began, first as star and then as producer…
And thanks to all of the cast of the eighth Fast:
Michelle, who’s also been with us from the start…
Those who’ve joined our family along the way: Tyrese and Chris from Miami in our second film; Dwayne and Elsa, who came on board in Rio in movie five; Jason, Nathalie and Kurt from last time around; and our newest members Charlize, Scott, Kristofer and Helen…
And our brother who continues to inspire us all, Paul.
We extend our gratitude to our new director F. Gary Gray, producers Neal Moritz and One Race Films, writer Chris Morgan, and the hundreds of awesome, dedicated crew members who worked their asses off.
All of us take our work on Fast & Furious seriously, and we seriously intend to wow the world again. We’ll be back in December with your first look at what we’ve created for you.
— Your Fast Family
That’s a long time to wait, but thankfully, these frequent updates have provided us with a healthy amount of material to tide us over until the winter, when we’ll finally get our first official look at the highly anticipated film.
Fast 8 zooms into theaters on April 14, 2017.
