New Delhi: Actor Vin Diesel looks rather forlorn as he looks at 'new roads ahead' in the first poster of Fast 8.

Conspicuous by his absence is Vin's former co-star Paul Walker who died in a road accident in 2013. Vin, who reprises the role of Dominic Toretto in the famous action flick, famously co-starred with Mr Walker in the films of the franchise.

Paul Walker, who has played undercover cop Brian O'Conner in all seven Fast & Furious films, died while filming the seventh installment. The film was completed with the actor's brothers, Caleb and Cody, standing in for him.

Vin Diesel has often paid tribute to his co-star on social media.


Directed by Chris Morgan, Fast 8 also co-stars Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Eva Mendes, Lucas Black, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron and Jason Statham. The film releases on April 14. Fast 9 and Fast 10 opens in 2019 and 2021.

Vin Diesel, meanwhile, has been busy filming xXx: The Return of Xander Cage in which he stars with a string of Hollywood stars. The film marks the Hollywood debut of actress Deepika Padukone.
