The "Fast & Furious" franchise is getting a little prettier day by day.
On Monday, it was formally announced that Scott Eastwood would be joining the franchise for "Fast 8."
"Kurt Russell's Mr. Nobody has a new protégé. Welcome Scott Eastwood to the Fast family in our next film," the studio wrote on the movie's Facebook page.
"The Fast and the Furious" has been busy pumping new blood into the franchise of late. It was previously announced that Charlize Theron will join "Fast 8." Kurt Russell, who will now star alongside Scott and his ripped body, debuted in "Furious 7," which was the last film the late Paul Walker made before tragically dying in a car accident during a break in production.
Just last week, Paul's 17-year-old daughter, Meadow, was awarded a $10.1 million settlement from the estate of Roger Rodas, the man who drove the car in which Paul perished.
In September of 2015, Meadow also filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche, claiming that when the Carrera GT crashed and broke apart, Paul's seat belt "snapped" his torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis, and trapping him in the passenger seat.
Porsche fought back, saying Paul only had himself to blame. While the court hasn't ruled on that case, a judge did rule in favor of the car manufacturer in early April in a wrongful death suit brought on by Rodas' widow, so that's not exactly a good sign for the teen.
In January, the "Fast & Furious" mainstay Vin Diesel got emotional at the People's Choice Awards while speaking about his late friend.
"As I was coming up there, I always say this to myself, I'm not gonna get emotional about wining these awards," he said, while accepting an award, "and then they handed me two awards, one for favorite action movie and one for favorite film. You all thought this was your favorite film."
"So I start to think of Paul," Vin said, "My only message to you is he would be amazed what you can do with love. He'd be amazed how powerful a force that is."
