There’s no question that the Fast & Furious franchise is raking in the dough, after all there have been seven movies so far. The death of one of the lead actors, Paul Walker, while the last installment was being filmed cast some doubts on the future of the franchise. Doubt no more as Vin Diesel has taken to Facebook to announce there will indeed be not only one, but three more movies to finish off the saga.
The fans of the Fast & Furious SAGA are the best fans in the world… Since I became the Producer in 2008, you have been with me every step of the way… literally giving me feedback that proved invaluable. Thank you.
My producing partner Neal would love for me to just sign off on a director, but this is too special a franchise, so these matters have to be very carefully handled. To be clear, NO ONE has been offered to helm Fast 8 yet… let alone seen a script.
Universal has been so good to me and so trusting of the vision… they have been like family… I promised the studio I would deliver one last Trilogy to end the saga.
I will announce the directors on my next post…
As you can see, details are pretty scarce at this point, a director hasn’t been chosen yet, and of course no word on potential plots – although I’m willing to bet we’ll see Jason Statham return in Fast 8. They just won’t be the same without Paul Walker though, but I’m sure we’ll be seeing plenty of fast cars, action, and hot guys and gals!
