The cast and crew of the Fast and Furious 8 goes to Cuba to shoot the remaining instalment of the final movie edit.
We have to admit the Fast and Furious franchise has taken us all around the world. We have seen Japan, Europe, South America and Africa in the various movies of the series and it has become a part of the movies’ thrill to see the new locations, see the people and the customs and the cars and the racing scene of that part of the world.

So when it came to shooting the 8th part of the franchise, the production had to do one up from the previous UAE trip that the crew took and where better to shoot the movie than the beautiful South Caribbean island of Cuba. Involved in some heavy strategic planning during the Cold War, Cuba has been a no zone since the 1960s when an embargo was settled.
Universal Pictures did their best in seeking approval from the United States and Cuban governments to explore shooting a portion of the next installment. They finally got the go ahead making Fast 8 the first Hollywood movie to be shot in Cuba since the 60s, according to Latino Fox News.
In a recent reveal, we saw Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez driving around on Havana Roads in Cuba where they were riding in a 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser. They were closely followed by director Gary Grey.
The stars pumped the air and posed for selfies as the crowd cheered them on. We could expect to see some development in Dom’s story as he has been indicated to have some Cuban roots. Vin Diesel also expressed his excitement to be working with Gray and being in Cuba.
