Vin Diesel has released some preliminary details about the eighth installment in the hugely successful Fast and Furious franchise.

Furious 7 hit theaters worldwide on April 3, but already we are hearing details about the next movie in the widely popular series. This shouldn't come as a surprise taking into account back in November last year we heard a Universal Pictures representative saying they are considering at least three more movies after F7.

Vin Diesel was invited late last month to the Jimmy Kimmel Live show on ABC and in the interview he revealed the character played by Kurt Russell will return in the next movie which will take place in New York.

It is believed the following movies will be directed by Justin Lin who was also responsible for Tokyo Drift (2006), Fast and Furious (2009), Fast Five (2009) and Fast & Furious 6 (2013). The new movies will allegedly introduce even more new characters while Brian O'Conner "will always be an integral part of the story", according to Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley.
