Fast & Furious 8 is coming April 2017

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

The next entry in the Fast & Furious franchise will hit movie theaters on April 14, 2017, actor and producer Vin Diesel announced at CinemaCon in Las Vegas today. "We're going to make the best movie you've ever seen," Diesel said when announcing Furious 8, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Confirmation of another Fast & Furious film isn't much of a surprise. Furious 7, which hit theaters on April 3, has already brought in more than $1.1 billion at the box office, making it one of the highest grossing films of all time. Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley said last year that the studio believes the franchise has "at least three more" films left in it.

"But we're of course very mindful about fatigue," Langley said.
