This week in America, a man has confirmed that a film will be made. That man is Vin Diesel, and that film is Fast and Furious 8. Yes, EIGHT.

Speaking at Universal Pictures’ presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, the amiable Diesel confirmed that on 14 April 2017, moviegoers would bear witness to the eighth installment in the supernaturally successful franchise of films-that-used-to-be-about-cars-but-are-now-about-stuff-exploding-and-people-machine-gunning-helicopters-out-of-the-sky.

“I swear to you and my brother upstairs,” Diesel told the audience, referring to the late Paul Walker, “we are going to make the best movie you’ve ever seen.” So, that’s it: Fast and Furious 8 is now officially a Thing. EIGHT.

Though it should come as no surprise. Fast and Furious 7 has made more than - cue Dr Evil close-up - $1 billion worldwide, and the franchise shows no sign of slowing down.

We have no idea what the plot will involve. We have no idea what cars will be involved. We have no idea who’ll be in it. But we do know this: THERE WILL BE GEARCHANGES.

TG’s starter for ten: they build a rocket-propelled Nissan Micra, go into space, oversteer on the moon while The Rock machine guns down invading aliens and tears the galaxy a new one. Or are we playing it too safe?
