Watch as F. Gary Gray gets the gang back together for another globetrotting adventure riddled with explosions and death-defying stunts in today’s all-new set video for 2017 sequel, Fast 8.
Heralding the first day that the Universal tentpole has welcomed all leading members of the Toretto crew back for the one scene, the clip above includes fleeting glimpses of Kurt Russell’s Mr. Nobody, along with Gray himself orchestrating the segment that sees Dom and the gang hatch a plan that is surely tailored around – or in spite of – Charlize Theron’s franchise newcomer, Cipher.
On board to play Fast 8‘s no-nonsense baddie – flanked by Suicide Squad star Scott Eastwood and Kristofer Hivju – the specifics of Cipher and indeed the sequel’s arc in general are being locked away behind-closed-doors; stowed away in a cell not unlike the one that Jason Statham found himself in just as the credits rolled on Furious 7.
