Jason Statham Says He’ll Be Back For ‘Furious 8’

Jason Statham Says He'll Be Back For 'Furious 8'

Here’s a basic rule: if you put a bad guy in a prison at the end of a movie, chances are he’ll break out by time the sequel arrives. And it looks like that’s just what’ll happen with Deckard Shaw from “Furious 7.”

The character made life hell for Vin Diesel and the gang in this spring’s billion dollar movie, but when the dust cleared, he was locked up in a maximum security prison, and everyone could get back to tricking out their rides. But alas, Deckard ain’t done yet. Chatting with Access Hollywood, Jason Statham said he’s returning to the fold.

“We’re already talking about doing another one, Part 8. I’m a newcomer, I just got invited to the party in this last one, so it’s nice to know I’m going to be doing another,” he said.

We’ll have to wait and see what the baddie’s master plan is next time, but we’ll know soon enough with the sequel slated to hit on April 14, 2017. [via Collider]
