The "Fast and Furious" movies have taken viewers through streets all around the world. When "Fast 8" arrives in 2017, there will be new locations including New York City, potentially Cuba and also somewhere very cold. On Wednesday, director F. Gary Gray posted a picture of one of the rides that will be featured in the franchise's eighth installment, one that will need snow to be driven.
Gray shared a behind-the-scenes photo on Instagram of a Timbersled, which looks like a combination between a dirt bike and a snowmobile. It basically allows you to convert your dirt bike so you can ride it on snow. The director is shown on top of the Timbersled, wearing a thick winter jacket and surrounded by snow.

While fans might be surprised to see a snow vehicle, it turns out it's because the movie will be also be filming in Iceland. According to ComingSoon.net, "Fast 8" will not only be filming in Iceland, but it will also feature the largest explosion ever filmed in the country. The movies have been known for their action sequences, which have not only included explosions, but also cars falling from a plane and driving through skyscrapers.
"Fast 8" will once again feature Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto), Dwayne Johnson (Hobbs), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty), Tyrese Gibson (Roman) and Jason Statham (Deckard Shaw). Deadline reports that the film might have new female villain and that Gray is eyeing Charlize Theron for the role. The two have worked together before when he directed "The Italian Job." No details about the "Fast 8" plot have been released.
Diesel has revealed that there will be three more "Fast and Furious" films before the saga comes to a conclusion. "Fast 8" is slated for an April 14, 2017 release, "Furious 9" is due out April 19, 2010 and the tenth film will debut April 2, 2021.
