Universal(LOS ANGELES) — On the heels of Furious 7‘s record-breaking success at the box office this past spring, one of the film’s stars, Jason Statham, is already teasing the next chapter of the popular series.
During the unveiling of Universal Studios Hollywood’s new Fast & Furious Supercharged theme park ride on Tuesday, the 47-year-old British actor told Access Hollywood, “We’re already talking about doing another one, part eight.”
“I’m a newcomer, I just got invited to the party in this last one,” notes Statham, “so it’s nice to know I’m going to be doing another.”
When pressed for plot details, Statham was tight-lipped, only revealing the movies’ braintrust has “always got something good up their sleeves.” Adds the actor, “I don’t want to be the one who spoils everything!… But there is some great stuff that I already know about.”
The eighth film in the Fast & Furious series is scheduled for an April 2017 release.
