Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is headed for the slammer in “Fast 8.”
Johnson released a set photo of his character, Luke Hobbs, decked out in an orange prison jump suit and shackles. Always quick with the hashtags, Johnson tagged the pic #OrangeAintTheNewBlack.
Helen Mirren was the latest high-profile addition to the already popular franchise. Charlize Theron will play the villain in the film, while “Game of Thrones” actor Kristofer Hivju will play her chief henchman.
Currently known as “Fast 8” to fans, the high-octane sequel is being directed by F. Gary Gray (“Straight Outta Compton”) and produced by Diesel, Neal Moritz of Original Film and Michael Fottrell. Screenwriter Chris Morgan will serve as an executive producer.
“Fast 8” will speed into theaters on April 14, 2017.
