“Fast 8” Goes Down In Cuba and Cinematic History + Behind-The-Scenes Photos

“Fast 8” Goes Down In Cuba and Cinematic History + Behind-The-Scenes Photos

The “Fast 8” film is already shooting. And this time, the action takes the Furious family to the streets of Havana, Cuba.

Ever since the commercial and financial embargo put on Cuba by the United States in the early 1960s, it’s been impossible to shoot a Hollywood film in the fascinating Caribbean nation for decades.

Fast 8, the latest installment in the record-setting franchise, making it one of the first films to shoot in the country after requesting approval from the United States and Cuban governments in January 2016.

The old Cuban cars are fascinating, and the country itself offers a more interesting backdrop than yet-another Los Angeles chase.

Tyrese Gibson who plays as Roman Pearce shot his first scenes in in Mývatn, Iceland, while Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Charlize Theron were filming in Cuba.

‘Fast 8’ aerial camera-ship was the very first #American aircraft to fly over Havana in over 50 years.
