‘Fast And Furious 8’ Release Date, Latest News & Updates: Paul Walker To Be Replaced By Scott Eastwood?

Production for "Fast and Furious" is said to be done and the team is doing a great job keeping things under wraps. Fans are now restless searching for any leaks that might ease their waiting. One prominent issue is that of Scott Eastwood.

Though there has been no announcement from the makers about new actors or actresses that might show in "Fast and Furious 8", the internet are brimming with speculations surrounding Scott Eastwood and his role or presence in the film.

There were reports that the character Brian O'Conner who is previously portrayed by Paul Walker was seen doing a fight scene with Vin Diesel in "Fast and Furious8". Will it be another CGI character or will it be a new actor? Well, we'll never know.

Considering that Scott Eastwood had a huge resemblance to Paul Walker, I can see where the speculations are pointing to. However, nothing is for certain, makers might as well do their magic and makes Paul Walker a CGI character as they have previously done in the last movie.

As for the previous actors, they have been quiet and did not give any updates about their roles in "Fast and Furious". Scott Eastwood on the other side has been busy in Sydney filming "Pacific Rim 2." It would have been easy if anyone from them would give us a hint.

Moving on, replacing Paul will be a bold move for the team. We will never know what will be the fan's reactions to this major change. Plus there are rumors that "Fast and Furious 8" has been masked in quarrels between co-stars and replacing Paul will be a bad move to maintain unity from the cast.

Meanwhile, Vin Diesel said on his Instagram account that the official trailer for "Fast and Furious 8" will be released on December 11 in Time Square. There are other rumors that the movie will feature much more big stars. If this proved to be true, we can hope for a major star power in 2017. However, all that we can do is just wait and hope for the best.
