Well that didn’t take too long. A day after it was reported that Straight Outta Compton’s F. Gary Gray was a finalist to direct Furious 8, it’s been made official: Gray will direct the next entry in the blockbuster series. He confirmed the news on Twitter.

This is yet another highlight after directing the surprise success that was Straight Outta Compton. Gray will look forward to directing The Rock, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson, who’re all returning stars.

Furious 8 is still scheduled to drop April 4, 2017. F. Gary Gray’s next film, Last Friday, is scheduled to drop in 2016.
