After the runaway success of Furious 7, an eighth movie in the Fast & Furious series already has an April 14, 2017 release date. Vin Diesel is on board, but we can also expect at least one villain to make an appearance in Furious 8: Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw.

“We’re already talking about doing another one, part eight,” Statham told Access Hollywood. “I’m a newcomer. I just got invited to the party in this last one, so it’s nice to know I’m going to be doing another.”

Statham and his Furious 7 costars were at Universal Studios Hollywood for the debut of the new “Fast & Furious—Supercharged” ride, which opened to the public on Wednesday. When pressed for plot details about Furious 8, Statham said he couldn’t reveal anything, but he teased: “There is some great stuff that I already know about.”
