During the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, Vin Diesel sang “See You Again,” the touching tribute song to his Furious 7 co-star Paul Walker. After leaving the stage, Vin Diesel confirmed plans for Fast & Furious 8 in an interview with MTV.
In regards to Fast & Furious 8 going to New York, Vin Diesel said, “Well, I was trying to keep it close to the vest throughout the release. Paul [Walker] used to say that eight was guaranteed. And in some ways, when your brother guarantees something, you sometimes feel like you have to make sure it comes to pass.”
Vin Diesel added, “So if fate has it, fate..F8…if fate has it, then you’ll get this when you hear about it. Seven was for Paul, eight is from Paul.”
Furious 7 is currently in theaters everywhere.
