F. Gary Gray confirms he's directing Furious 8

10.08.2015

F. Gary Gray is heading STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON and straight into 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.

Very talented and versatile director. Excellent choice, and since the series has been changed and invigorated, I'm looking forward to it.

Wow, I didn't know this is a sensitive subject matter for you. Btw, your parents must be proud of you.

Although I'm still on the fence about continuing the series now that Walker is gone, and the fact these movies keep getting more outlandish, Gray is a solid director so hopefully this turns out good.
I guess that leaves the Black Panther directing job still open.

Don't forget his experience with Rock and Statham as well.

Rock on Be Cool and Statham on The Italian Job.

Urban based action is a natural fit for Gray.
