"I swear to you and I swear to my brother upstairs, we're going to make the best movie you've ever seen," Diesel said, acknowledging the late Paul Walker, his co-star in the franchise who was killed in an off-set car crash in 2013, while he was on a break from filming Furious 7.

No director for or plot details about the eighth movie were revealed.

Co-starring Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson and Ludacris, Furious 7 has earned more than $1 billion worldwide since it opened earlier this month.
