F. Gary Gray confirms he's directing Furious 8
We knew this was on the way once Gray emerged as the frontrunner in a very short list of candidates to helm the next chapter in the FAST & FURIOUS saga, but until he signed his name on the line that is dotted, anything could happen.
Nothing else did, so Gray took to Twitter to make the official announcement.

Gray seems like a solid fit, given his history with Vin Diesel (A MAN APART), his experience with car chase (THE ITALIAN JOB), his grasp of family-type ensembles (SET IT OFF) and his current strong standing with Universal (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON).
This was an easy vacancy to fill. Now let's see if it works.
FURIOUS 8 drives into theaters on April 14, 2017.
