The Fast and Furious 8 plot is allegedly already thought out, as well as the plots for the next two films in the franchise. Vin Diesel has come out to reveal that he knows how it will all end.
Don’t expect him to reveal the details any time soon, though, because that would probably be the biggest spoiler ever for the series. That would be saying something, considering nobody expected Jason Statham to enter Diesel’s “garage” until the end of Fast and Furious 6. His character became central to the plot of Furious 7.
MTV has revealed in a press interview with the upcoming The Last Witch Hunter star, Vin Diesel knows exactly how the Fast and Furious franchise will close. It wasn’t much to go on, since the question asked was “do you…?” and his answer was simply “yes.”
For the rest of the world, it isn’t yet known what Fast and Furious 8‘s plot will be.The Inquisitr previously reported that the film might take place in New York City. Natives of the city were quick to point out that the series’ races would be next to impossible to pull off in the city’s typically congested streets. This is why subways are the preferred method of transportation in the Big Apple.
The Last Witch Hunter could be said to be just as unbelievable, since it centers on witches the way they are portrayed in video games such as The Witcher. Real witches are anything but violent unless it’s a personal preference; Wicca is a peaceful, nature-based religion. Vin Diesel has also filmed stunts that should have left his character dead or at least crippled, so realism isn’t likely all that important to him.
In an interview with MTV, Diesel revealed not only how much he knows about Fast and Furious 8‘s plot, but he hinted at some of the new cast members coming into the franchise. He started by name-dropping someone who last saw action in Bruce Willis’ RED 2, “I think everyone should do the franchise. They’ve gotta get in line behind Helen Mirren. She is on the list. Be careful what you wish for, Helen.”
Vin Diesel hasn’t decided on an official title though.
“A lot of people are thinking ‘F8,’ I just get lazy and say Fast 8. I don’t know if the official title’s come out yet. It’s never the official title. You have to understand. When you talk about titles and you talk about The Fast and the Furious the first movie all through production the back of my chair said ‘Red Line.’ This is like, this is par for the course for the ‘Fast‘ franchise. We never know what the title is officially.”
It’s odd that Diesel mentioned the words “Red Line” when referring to Fast and Furious 8. The plot of nearly every race film in existence contributed a cliché to a separate film which was actually released under the name Redline. Jalopnik says Redline was so bad it even beat 2 Fast 2 Furious as one of the top three worst car films of all time.

You might remember 2 Fast 2 Furious as the one movie in the franchise Vin Diesel wasn’t in. Hopefully Fast and Furious 8‘s plot will help keep it off that list.
Diesel also told Extra that working on The Last Witch Hunter helped him deal with the death of his friend and co-star, Paul Walker. The work will likely make Fast and Furious 8 a bit easier for the actor to work on.
“Doing this character, at the time that I did it, it’s no secret that the last year’s been a dark year and probably no coincidence that I played a character that thinks about death in the way that Kaulder does, and is melancholy the way the character is. When you meet Kaulder, you very quickly learn that he is masking pain and sorrow, and that’s probably the best way to describe the whole last two years.”
What do you think will happen in Fast and Furious 8‘s plot? Vin Diesel knows, but the rest of us will have to wait and see.
