Hot on the heels of directing Straight Outta Compton, F. Gary Gray is putting the fate of “The Fast & Furious” franchise in his hands. So was there any pressure? The veteran director told us there was definitely a little pressure taking on Fast 8, and also revealed what he wanted to do differently.

“There’s always pressure, I put pressure on myself to do ‘Compton’,” he explained. “This is a multi-million dollar franchise with a global audience and they expect certain things. I have a very specific approach to film making and I wanted to put my spin on it.”

Thankfully Gary had already worked with mostly everyone in the film on previous projects like Charlize Theron & Jason Statham (Italian Job) and Vin Diesel (A Man Apart).

“Over time, they’ve grown as artists and I like to think I’ve grown as an artist and now we are sharing that and you get the benefit of the that in The Fate of the Furious,” he said. “I think this time you will see next level performances and a different level of humor than you’ve seen before. ”

Oh, and then there’s Dominic Torretto going rogue!

“Chris Morgan, who is the writer, really came up with something different,” said Gray. “Between Vin and Chris, I think they did a good job at saying it’s time to put this franchise in another zone. If you are going to tell the story, don’t just tell it; let’s make it really, really compelling … I think it was a strong choice.”

The Fate of the Furious hits theaters April 14th.
