Early last year, Vin Diesel announced that "Furious 8" would hit theaters April 14, 2017. The most recent installment, "Furious 7," had only been in theaters for little over a month, and raked in $1 billion in 17 days. Now, the actor has announced the dates for the final two installments.
The remaining three movies in the "Fast and Furious" franchise will be spaced out by two years, with the ninth installment coming to theaters on April 19, 2019, and the 10th on April 2, 2021. The announcement was made earlier this week on Vin Diesel's Instagram account.
It's been previously hinted that the next installment will be filmed in New York City, when Diesel teased an image of the first poster for the movie that has been titled "Fast 8" with a backdrop of the city's skyline. Plot details have yet to be revealed, but we're curious to see how the final three films will play out.
The release of the final installment will also mark the 20th anniversary of the "Fast and Furious" franchise, and while we won't be seeing the late Paul Walker in the upcoming films, we expect to see familiar faces alongside Vin Diesel, including Jordanna Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez.
