Furious 8 Lands Director Straight Outta Award Season

StraightOuttaSomewhereF Gary Gray, already on the short list for numerous awards this year after helming Straight Outta Compton, has just signed on to direct Furious 8.  The movie is still set to be released on April 17, 2017.  Gray had been considered a frontrunner to direct Marvel’s Black Panther, but since that’s now been set for a 2018 release that may be too close to Furious 8 for that to be true.  T’Challa’s loss is my favorite car-based-over-the-top-heist franchise’s gain!
