Hivju is a well-known actor and has played several roles including the ones in Force Majeure and After Earth. Well, now the actor is ready to do some crazy work. Cast as an evil henchman in the eight part of Fast and Furious, this Game of Thrones actor is ready to show some magic on screen.
Kristofer Hivju is actually an actor of Norwegian origin, has appeared in many episodes of Game of Thrones and is effectively remembered as Tormund the wildling who supposedly made love with a bear and also fell in love with Brienne of Tarth.
In the eighth franchise of the world renowned Fast and Furious Film, Hivju is casted alongside actors like Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodrigue, Tyrese Gibson etc. The official title of this Fast and Furious Frnachise has not not been announced. Even the film’s main protagonist is yet to be revealed though one crucial detail we have is that Charlize Theron is there and has been looked upon as the potential villain in the franchise.
The director of the eighth franchise of Fast and Furious is F. Gary Gray who has also directed Straight Outta Compton in the past and has done a pretty good job with it. This movie starring Hivju, Dwayne Johnson and others is all set to hit the theaters on April 14, 2017 according to the schedule. The schedule also includes the shooting locations and the list has New York and Cuba on it. Going by the sound of all this, Fast and Furious eight is going to be worth the wait and we cannot wait to see Hivju in it.
This sounds like a pretty good deal.
