Celebrated Hollywood actor Vin Diesel has set his hopes high on his upcoming fast-car-street-racer movie Fast 8. As he believes, this movie could fetch him an Oscar.
Vin Diesel has moreover invested in this movie Fast 8, which is directed by F. Gary Gray. The actor feels that the director is highly talented and he had narrowly missed out on Oscar opportunity for his spectacular rap biopic movie Straight Outta Compton.
"I think he went into making this movie with a little bit of a chip on his shoulder, going 'Oh, really? OK. Now I'm going to take the biggest saga in the world, and I'm about to throw Oscars at you. Wait till you see what he does!" Vin Diesel said.
Vin Diesel is also very excited about the new raw tone of the upcoming Fast 8. He says, "Fast 8 is different. It's very dark. My character is conflicted in a way that is really going to shock you. He's coming off of a lot of emotion from 7 and the loss that 7 represents."
"December 11, every screen in Times Square will be playing the trailer, and it's going to hit you like a ton of bricks. Everything is going to make sense." Diesel added further.
