Currently lensing in Cleveland, Ohio, it’s been quite the globe-trotting journey for Fast 8.
From the sun-scorched streets of Cuba to Arkanes, a remote town on the coast of Iceland, F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton) has ensured the franchise’s rip-roaring sense of adventure remains intact for his maiden entry in Universal’s series.
He’s been documenting Fast 8‘s travels, too, using Instagram to establish something of an open dialog between the fanbase and the team guiding the sequel to its April 2017 release date. The latest media dump focus on the movie’s base of operations in Iceland, which also heralded the construction of the largest blue screen in Fast and Furious history.
