News about the upcoming “Fast and Furious 8” continue to spread on the internet as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson reportedly revealed his new role on the film.

The wrestler reprises his role as Agent Luke Hobbs, notes Christian Today. Johnson also shared his preparation via his Instagram. According to the website, he is an enemy that turned to be an ally.

He stated that he Hobbs new agenda for the next “Fast and Furious” installation are to “Raise the bar, dominate, destroy, and to chew gum. And Hobbs is always out of bubble gum.”

Phenomenal week of hard training as I'm 18 days away from steppin' on set for Fast & Furious 8. Should be fun. The tricky part this whole time is I have a week left of shooting #BAYWATCH where the character was roughly 235-238lbs the entire shoot. Today I tipped the scales at 252lbs. When I step on set for #Fast8 I'll land somewhere between 252-255lbs. The shirtless scenes have all been shot for #BAYWATCH so with clothing Im able to cover up this final week of production. For #Fast8 – after havin' long chats with Universal and my good bud/director F. Gary Gray, the character of "Hobbs" has been hired to do three things: Raise the bar, dominate and destroy… and chew bubble gum. And Hobbs is always out of bubble gum. Thank you Rowdy One for that line. A lot of you guys out there (many pro and amateur athletes as well) know how f'n challenging it is to dial in and "make weight" for a performance or contest. Not fun, but hopefully it becomes all worth it in the end when you achieve your goals. Respect. In this case, Fast & Furious 8 will be my fourth rodeo with this franchise. The character has got to evolve – bad ass, focused, bounty hunter mentality and above all else – funny. In a winking way for the audience to enjoy. If there's no character growth, then it's over. And it ain't ever over 'til Hobbs says it's over. I think that line needs to be in the movie;). Promise to do my best to deliver the goods. Until then, we all keep makin' it happen with hard ass work and our own two hands. While chewin' bubble gum and drinkin' some blue gorilla urine concoction that puts apparently puts hair on your chest. Yum. #ExcellentWeekOfWork #IronParadise #FromBaywatchToFastAndFurious #BlueDrinkMakesDaddyWannaSlapSomebody (and thank the Lord I'm shooting JUMANJI and BALLERS in the fall. Tired of eating so damn much;)

Meanwhile, filming for the upcoming action-comedy reboot has begun in Cuba, as per Elite Daily. It has been reported months ago that the filmmakers are eager to undergo talks with the Cuban government so they can set the filming in one of the Cuban areas. “Fast and Furious 8” is the first film to ever set foot in the country.

As noted by Day Herald, producers do not just want to develop a computer graphic version of Havana but they want the film to be authentically shot in the area. Hence, the successful negotiation.

The website also noted that a behind-the-scene video was leaked but it was removed immediately due to copyright violations. But this time, the people behind the film are planning to add a little spice to the movie by allegedly using vintage cars.

On the other hand, the issue whether the late Paul Walker will be replaced or remembered on “Fast and Furious 8” still lingers on the internet too. Hearsays have it that he will return with the help of computer graphics.

Some might be happy to know about that, but others feel that no one can replace Brian O’Conner, even when his brother Cody who posed as him just to make his remarkable exit on the previous film.

“Fast and Furious 8” kicks off in cinemas on April 14, 2017.
