'Fast and Furious 8' to film in Iceland

Reykjavik: Director F. Gary Gray will reportedly film a few sequences of 'Fast and Furious 8' in Arkanes, Iceland.
Town mayor Regina Asvaldsdottir confirmed the report by Icelandic news site Visir and said that actor Vin Diesel and the film crew members would arrive in April, reports aceshowbiz.com. 
Of what scene would be filmed in Arkanes, the news outlet reported that the crew planned to make "the largest explosion ever in Iceland."
In addition to shooting in Arkanes, the director will reportedly film 'Fast 8' in Cuba and Russia. 
"Surely, this is a major project and will affect retail and service in town," Regina told the news outlet regarding the positive effect of the movie on her town.
Local residents are reportedly excited after learning that the sequel to 'Furious 7' will partly be filmed in their town. 
As Universal Pictures stated earlier, the studio "is currently in the process of seeking approval from the United States and Cuban governments to explore shooting a portion of the next instalment of the 'Fast & Furious' series in Cuba." 
However, the majority of filming will take place in New York and Atlanta. 
In 'Fast and Furious 8', Diesel will reprise his role as Dominic Toretto. 
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jason Statham and Kurt Russell also star in the movie.
