The film, which seeks to capitalize on the chemistry between the two best (only good?) parts of The Fate of the Furious, has begun production under the direction of Deadpool 2’s David Leitch.
Jordan Peele Reportedly in Talks for ‘Candyman’ Remake
Jordan Peele is understandably in high demand after making his feature directing debut with last year’s phenomenal Get Out.

Paul Walker’s Brothers Want to Bring Him Back in Another ‘Fast and Furious’ Sequel
Following his untimely death, Paul Walker’s brothers Cody and Caleb stepped in to help finish production on Furious 7, serving as stand-ins for the late actor.

If You Go See ‘Unfriended: Dark Web,’ There’s No Telling Which Ending You’ll Get
Of all the film genres, horror is typically the most likely to have alternate endings — specifically either a bummer ending or a happy-ish one. While test screenings can have an impact on which ending ultimately makes it to theaters, home releases often include both. Hostel, The Butterfly Effect and The Descent are just a few of those. (It’s interesting to note that, when given the choice, audiences usually prefer the darker ending of the two.) But in the case of Unfriended: Dark Web, the film is being released with both endings.
