Ever wonder how action films like the “The Fast and The Furious” series were shot?

Wonder no more, because “Fast 8” director Felix Gary Gray gave us a glimpse of the set and showed us some action scenes of the upcoming movie via his Instagram yesterday (Monday, 6th June).

Several photos and videos were posted, with Gray showing a car marred with bullet holes, the biggest blue screen (for CGI effects) in “Fast and Furious” history, and their filming process in Iceland.


The footage appears to be from their Iceland sequence, but principal photography is also planned to take place in Georgia, Atlanta, and New York. Possible shooting locations include Cuba and Russia, though nothing has been confirmed.

“Fast 8” will see franchise regulars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson reuniting to reprise their roles as Dominic Toretto, Letty Ortiz, Mia Toretto, Roman Pearce, Tej Parker, and Luke Hobbs respectively. Elsa Pataky, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Lucas Black will also return in their roles from “Furious 7”.

Jason Statham and Kurt Russell will come back once again to terrorise the main characters as Deckard Shaw and Mr. Nobody. Meanwhile, Charlize Theron has been confirmed to play the main villain, Cipher, with Kristofer Hivju as one of her henchmen.

Take a look at the behind-the-scene sneak peeks here:
