After the hugely successful and record-breaking release of Furious 7, fans of the adrenaline-pumping franchise are wondering just how 'La Familia' could possibly top their latest exploits. From the looks of things, star and producer Vin Diesel shows no signs of pumping the brakes on the high-octane action for Fast & Furious 8.

Much like Furious 7 shooting in Dubai, apparently the eighth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise will be going global once again.

Earlier this month, it was reported by THR that Universal Studios was eyeing locations in Cuba and asking permission from both governments to approve filming there this year, making Fast & Furious 8 the first Hollywood movie, other than Giovanni Ribisi's Papa, to shoot in Cuba since the 1960s.

In addition to seeking locations in Cuba, it was recently reported that Fast 8 will also film in Iceland.

Regina Ásvaldsdóttir, the mayor of Icelandic port town Akranes, was recently interviewed by Visir in which she stated that film crews are expected to arrive sometime in April to shoot in the harbor and Cement Fields.

"This is of course a major project and will have an impact on trade and services in the town. We are very interested."

But that's not all! The article also reported that, in classic Vin Diesel style, the film will host biggest explosion to ever take place in the country.

Although it probably won't top the Guinness World Record for biggest movie explosion set by Spectre last year, I'm sure it will still impress.

Fast 8 is set for release April 14, 2017.
