Furious 7 is smashing box office records so of course, Universal is ramping up their plans for Fast and Furious 8. Vin Diesel recently told Jimmy Kimmel the sequel will take place in New York. And now to add more speculative fuel to the fire, according to Latino Review, rumor has it the production is wanting Eva Mendes to reprise her role as U.S. Customs Agent Monica Fuentes. Mendes originally appeared in 2 Fast 2 Furious and had an uncredited cameo in Fast 5. Furious 7 opened to $388.7 million globally so one can only deduce it’d be in Mendes’ best interest to say yes.
