Will Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw Return for ‘Furious 8’?


If you haven’t seen Furious 7 then I must say the following is a spoiler so stop now…


At the end of Furious 7, Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw is locked away by Dwayne Johnson’s Hobbs in a maximum security cell somewhere in what looks like the center of the Earth, but that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of him. Statham tells Access Hollywood he’s ready for another go in Furious 8.

“We’re already talking about doing another one, Part 8,” says Statham. “I’m a newcomer! I just got invited to the party in this last one so it’s nice to know I’m gonna be doing another… They’ve always got something good up their sleeve, and I don’t want to be the one who spoils the plot lines but there is some great stuff I already know about.”

Vin Diesel at this year’s CinemaCon that an eight film was in the making and that it would likely be set in New York City.  Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell are also expected to return, along with Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black.

Furious 8 arrives in theaters on April 14, 2017
