After completing their mission successfully, Brian and Mia retire from the game while Dom and Letty take off to their honeymoon. The other members of the team have also been acquitted of their charges, and are just settling into their new normal life. But fate is not yet done with the crew, as Dom suddenly finds himself in the world of crime again, this time under the influence of a mysterious woman (Charlize Theron). The cost: betraying those closest to him, including Letty. On the other hand, his friends are not ready to give up on him yet. In their quest to pull Dom out of the seductress’s control, who is also a highly skilled hacker, the team has to pass through some of the most challenging roadblocks so far. They will crisscross the world, from the crowded streets of New York and the shores of Cuba, all the way to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea. The hacker’s mission: to unleash chaos on a global scale! The director, F. Gary Gray, is also known for directing Law Abiding Citizen, The Italian Job, A Man Apart, Be Cool, The Negotiator, Friday, and Straight Outta Compton. The screenwriter is still Chris Morgan.
