'Fast & Furious 8' Release Date, Cast, Plot & Spoilers: Vin Diesel Confirms New York as Next Filming Location [Pic]
Vin Diesel recently confirmed New York as the next filming location for highly anticipated "Fast & Furious 8."
While the plot of the upcoming street racing movie still remains unknown, Diesel previously hinted that it would take place in the Big Apple during his appearance on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
The 47-year-old actor also revealed that Kurt Russell's "Furious 7" character, Mr. Nobody, who assisted his character Dom Toretto in stopping Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) in exchange for safeguarding a computer program the God's Eye, is expected to return to play a larger role.
"I always think of these films multiple pictures in advance," he said. "Kurt Russell came in for this movie but we really hired him for a story that follows this that takes place in New York."
As part of #TorettoTuesday, Diesel took to his Instagram account on May 27 to share a graphic, which looks like a shot of the NYC skyline, along with the title of "Fast & Furious" set against it.
The image certainly suggests that Dom and his gang are heading to the concrete jungle of Manhattan in Summer 2017, after racing across the streets of some of the hottest cities around the world, including London, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Abu Dhabi and United Arab Emirates.
Cinema Blend then analyzed Diesel's photo, saying, "That's undoubtedly the Brooklyn Bridge in the foreground, so the photo confirms what Diesel told Jimmy Kimmel during a recent spot on his late-night talk show."

Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson confirmed that he is coming back to the hit franchise's next installment.
"It can't go on without Hobbs," he said during a news conference for his forthcoming movie "San Andreas," via Collider.
Johnson also discussed the possibility of a solo film centered on his character: "I just had a big conversation with the studio. So we'll see. I still think for me personally we've created a little bit of space for him in '7' and the gauge is set for what the audience will want."
"Fast & Furious" hits theaters on April 14, 2017.
