F. Gary Gray has landed the gig to direct Furious 8. Get deets on the announcement inside and see FLOTUS in character for her upcoming “Doc McStuffins” appearance.
As a director, F. Gary Gray is riding a wave of success. In addition to directing Straight Outta Compton (over $200M worldwide), he’s just landed the most coveted gig in Hollywood…Furious 8.
We learned about the news via Facebook after actor Vin Diesel posted a pic of himself and the director on his Facebook page. Thanks to his stellar year, we’ve even heard that F. Gary was Universal’s first choice to direct the BILLION dollar franchise.
F. Gary and his team are set to begin negotiations and storyboard ideas with the studio this week and we’re sure he’s gonna be WELL compensated. Congrats!
