F. Gary Gray Confirmed As Furious 8 Director!!!

Straight Outta Compton’s very own F. Gary Gray Confirmed As Furious 8 Director which was revealed on Gray’s Facebook page earlier today.

CelebNMusic247.com previously told you that F. Gary Gray was in Talks To Direct Furious 8, the first in a trilogy of three new installments starring Vin Diesel.

Here are the new details for Furious 8:

F. Gary Gray’s deal to direct Furious 8 for Universal Pictures came courtesy of social media. Taking a page from franchise star and producer Vin Diesel’s playbook, Gray confirmed the deal via a recent post on his Facebook page. We’ve yet to hear a reaction from Diesel himself – he’s currently in the middle of promoting The Last Witch Hunter – but it shouldn’t be long before he follows up. Earlier this week Diesel reveal that Riddick 4 movie in the works.

It appears that Universal went a long way in convincing Gray to helm the next installment in the hugely popular Fast and Furious franchise, rather than say jumping ship and heading to Marvel to direct their Black Panther picture.

The cool thing about Gray helming Furious 8 is simple, He and Diesel have already worked together back in the day on A Man Apart.

Here is what F. Gary Gray posted on his Facebook page:

There’s no way Riddick would have been made without you guys. You know that. and you guys have been a part of our page since 2012 and remember how arduous a road it was to get the movie made, and to make it rated ‘R,’ and to do it with such a low-budget. It’s a win for all of us and I really, really thank you so much.”

“Yeah, I’m excited and of course, Universal also says they want to develop the next one.”
