There were rumours that the eighth instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise would pay a visit to the Big Apple, but it looks like the team will actually be spending time in a far more exotic locale. That’s because the action is heading to Cuba, making this movie the first major studio production to ever shoot on the island (it’s sure to have a unique look as a result).

The Fast and Furious movies have always raced their way around the globe, with everywhere from Los Angeles to Dubai, Japan, and London highlighted in past instalments of the series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fast and Furious 8 director F. Gary Gray, “recently returned from a scouting trip that included the previously embargoed nation as part of professional research trip.” The studio meanwhile has confirmed that they’re working to take the franchise to Cuba, while other rumoured locations include both Russia and Iceland.

The Fast and Furious has become so crazy that it’s genuinely exciting to imagine what the next movie can do with the countries listed above, though the production itself will be based in Atlanta. Fast and Furious 7 became one of the highest grossing releases of all-time last year with a haul of $1.5 billion, and so big things are expected for this one come April 2017!
