The Fast and Furious saga is gearing up for another joyride.

Vin Diesel announced on Thursday that there will be an eighth installment of the car racing franchise to be released on April 14, 2017.

“We’re going to make the best movie you’ve ever seen,” the actor said when announcing the release date.

The news was revealed during the studio’s CinemaCon presentation, following an emotional speech by Vin Diesel.

“The last time I was on this stage I was with my brother Pablo,” Diesel said. “It’s hard for me to even watch that clip and then come out here without being emotional. But most importantly, I mean it from the bottom of my heart, that you guys, you help us make this special.”

The Furious 7 has already broken box office records worldwide, so far grossing more than $1.1 billion globally.
