While we are under embargo on our review of the new film until it opens, we did get this nice bit of news sent to us today and confirmed by one of the reps at the screening.
You heard it here first. The Fast and The Furious 8 will be set in New York and Kurt Russel will return according to Vin Diesel and reported to us by a P.R. member for the film.
This is great news considering that chapters 8, 9, and 10 are already planned by Universal who are not set to let their cash cow franchise go anytime soon.
