Furious 8 Gets a Release Date

Wow, Can’t wait.

TIME

F8 was, in fact, fate: An eighth movie in the Fast and Furious franchise is now set for release April 14, 2017.

Star Vin Diesel made the announcement during Universal’s CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas Thursday.

Titled Furious 8, the film will arrive as a follow-up to this month’s Furious 7, directed by James Wan. Since its April 3 opening, the most recent sequel has grossed more than $1 billion worldwide (it crossed the coveted threshold in a mere 17 days).

Furious 8 will be the first in the series to be fully shot and released after the death of co-star Paul Walker, and Diesel paid tribute to his late friend from the CinemaCon stage.

“I swear to you and to my brother upstairs [Walker], we are going to make the best movie you’ve ever seen,” Diesel said during Universal’s presentation.
