A video shared from the sets of Fast and Furious 8 has given a glimpse of the collection of expensive cars that will be used during the filming of the latest instalment of the franchise. The set of classic cars are valued at more than $17m (£12m).
The 15-minute video shared on Facebook features the film's vehicle coordinator Dennis McCarthy showcasing a wide range of cars housed inside a garage. According to Movieweb, the video is part of a tradition called Fast Fridays, which allows one of the team members to share a footage that they have captured throughout the week for fans to check out.
McCarthy in the video says these cars will be used in a scene he calls the "automotive Valhalla".
"It's basically what I feel is probably the coolest cars we ever put together for one scene, and it's without a doubt the most expensive collection of vehicles we ever put in one place," McCarthy says.
The previous Fast Fridays video from the Cleveland set of the film saw cars flying out of a building and smashing on the road below. Before the Cleveland shooting, the crew were filming in Cuba and Iceland. According to reports, the Cuba scenes will introduce fans of the franchise to Dominic Torreto's Cuban family.
The makers of the film have been tight lipped about the movie plot but there are clear indications that the movie will be the much bigger than previous instalments of the franchise.
The cast of the movie includes Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Charlize Theron, Dwayne Johnson, Nathalie Emmanuel, Ludacris, Jason Statham and Kurt Russell.
F Gary Gray is directing the film from a script penned by Chris Morgan. Beside the first two chapters, Morgan has penned the rest of the script of the franchise.
The film is set to open in theatres on 14 April 2017.
