Vin Diesel Shares Somber First 'Fast & Furious 8' Poster
By Antoinette Bueno
Paul Walker's presence in the Fast & Furious series will always be missed.
Vin Diesel shared the firstFurious 8poster on Facebook on Tuesday, which features just him looking out to an empty road. Furious 8 marks the first film in the franchise to not feature Walker, who died in November 2013.
Set to hit theaters April 14, 2017, the latest installment does have some notable new faces, including Charlize Theron and Scott Eastwood. Last week, Eastwood shared the first photo from the Atlanta, Georgia set, featuring Tyrese, Ludacris, and director F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton).
"Little behind the scenes.... can't show you too much," he teased. "But what I can say is @tyrese and @ludacris and @fgarygray couldn't been more welcoming. Really good dudes. Had a great first day. Lots of laughs."
"I feel like her coming on board -- girl power," Tyrese told ET exclusively about the Oscar-winning actress when we caught up with him at WE Day earlier this month. "What we pride [ourselves in] in the Fast and Furious [franchise] is a very diversified cast that's translating domestically and internationally in a major way."
"When you look at the movie poster and you look to the left, you look to the right, I'm like, 'Fellas, we need some more women in here, man. We got to change this thing up a bit,'" he continued. "We have bits and pieces of power women in it, but we needed to bring it up a notch. [We were] looking into the Ronda Rouseys -- Michelle Rodriguez has been holding it down since day one -- but we got Jordana Brewster and Charlize, we're really stepping it up."
