CLEVELAND (AP) - Crews are set to arrive in Cleveland to shoot car racing scenes for the next installment of the billion-dollar “Fast & Furious” move franchise.

Cleveland.com (https://bit.ly/1UZOqmk ) reports that traffic will be tied up as crews arrive next week to shoot “Fast 8” which stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne “The Rock Johnson” and Charlize Theron. It’s currently being filmed in Cuba.

“Fast 8” takes place in New York City, so it’s possible Cleveland will once again be playing the Big Apple on the big screen. The filming will involve cars racing downtown.

The Cleveland shoot is expected to have a significant local impact with 400 local jobs being created, business being done with 200 local companies and more than 8,200 hotel room nights booked.

“Fast 8” hits theaters next April.
