“Fast & Furious 8” is filming some action scenes in Cleveland and now casting experienced drivers with on set experience to play drivers.
Currently, the production needs precision drivers with their own cars in Cleveland. The cars need to be regular cars, not race cars. See car specs below. Talent chosen to play drivers will need to attend an audition as well as a driver training session this weekend. Please note that the submission instructions are only for the driver roles and there is a different notice for general extras. There is a second call for a male featured extra as well.
Universal Pictures is working on a new chapter for their popular “Fast and Furious” franchise. “Fast 8: New Roads Ahead” is supposedly the 1st film in a trilogy that will bring the long running “Fast and Furious” franchise to a close. “Fast 8” is in production this summer and will reunite most of the “Fast & Furious” cast from previous films. Vin Diesel announced the news of the upcoming trilogy via his Instagram account, where he also announced the release dates for the 3 final films. “Fast 8” will be hitting the movie theaters in about a year on April 14, 2017. “Fast & Furious 9″ will follow two years after the first on on April 19,2019 and fans will have to wait until the next decade for the finale, “Fast 10” which is set to hit theaters on April 2, 2021.
Please note that the notice below is ONLY for Cleveland area drivers. For those that are looking to submit for general extras, please visit the casting directors site to register.
