After we all saw Fast Five we knew that we were going to see a few more of these Fast and Furious movies. It did extremely well at the box office, and it was actually incredibly entertaining. The franchise's star, Vin Diesel, recently confirmed that we will in fact see a seventh Fast and Furious film and that it's currently in the works. Basically the sixth movie they have been developing will be split into two films, and I've got no problems with that.
Diesel said that as they were planning out the sixth movie "director Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan realized that they would need a seventh movie to tell their story. The sixth and seventh are being written simultaneously." He went on to say,
With the success of this last one, and the inclusion of so many characters, and the broadening of scope, when we were sitting down to figure out what would fit into the real estate of number six, we didn’t have enough space.
We have to pay off this story, we have to service all of these character relationships, and when we started mapping all that out it just went beyond 110 pages. The studio said, ‘You can’t fit all that story in one damn movie!’
I'm actually looking forward to seeing where they end up taking these characters and this story. I don't think I've ever said that about a Fast and Furious film, but I liked what they did in the last one so much that I think they can take it in an awesome direction. There were no details offered up on the story but Paul Walker did add the following...
It’s not about the action and the cars, which initially appealed to me when I was 25 years old. Because if that’s all it was, it would have fallen off a long time ago.
What do you all think about seeing two more Fast and Furious movies?
