Vin Diesel thinks 'Fast 8' could win Oscar

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Actor Vin Diesel believes with F. Gary Gray as the director, the eighth part of "Fast and Furious" movie will have a chance to win at an Oscar next year.

Gray's "Straight Outta Compton" failed to win at this year's 88th Academy Awards in the Best Original Screenplay category. However, Diesel feels the director will definitely win an Oscar in 2017.

"I think he went into making this movie with a little bit of a chip on his shoulder, going 'Oh, really? Okay. Now, I'm going to take the biggest saga in the world, and I'm about to throw Oscars at you. Wait till you see what he does'," Diesel told etonline.com.

"('Fast 8') is different. It's very dark," said Diesel, who plays the role of Dominic Toretto in the franchise.

"My character is conflicted in a way that is really going to shock you. He's coming off of a lot of emotion from 'Furious 7' and the loss that 'Furious 7' represents," he added.

"Fast 8" is set to release on April 14, 2017 in the US.
