Tanks, army vehicles and ski doos were seen racing across Lake Mývatn yesterday. The area, which is normally quite peaceful, has been the set for the eight instalment of the Fast and the Furious franchise for the past weeks. Principal photography began in Mývatn in March and will continue in Akranes, West Iceland, in April.

Actor Tyrese Gibson arrived in Iceland yesterday to film scenes for the action movie. The film also stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Eva Mendes, Kurt Russell, and Jason Statham.
