After a grueling search, Universal has chosen a director for the eighth installment in their Fast And Furious franchise.

Gary Gray has officially signed on to sit behind the camera for the first of three films that will bring a close to the story of Domenic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family.

The filmmaker sent out a tweet announcing his involvement and his happiness at being included in the high-octane series:

Gray is just coming off the summer hit Straight Outta Compton but he has done some impressive action work in the past. He helmed the remake of The Italian Job, Law Abiding Citizen and A Man Apart, which also starred Vin Diesel.

Production is expected to begin as soon as possible to hit the checkered flag that is the release date of April 14, 2017.
