Vin Diesel Confirms Fast & Furious 7
One movie is just not enough to contain Vin Diesel and The Rock. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Vin mentioned that Fast & Furious 7 is already a go and that’s before cameras have even started rolling on the sixth.
“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,” he said.
“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!’”
Fast & Furious 5 was one of the biggest surprises of this year so more automobile/violent action will be welcome if it keeps up the same standard.
Well, what’s the secret of their success. Star of FF5 Paul Walker believes “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.” Hmm, we’re not so sure…but there’s certainly something about the last movie which makes it rock.
Fast & Furious 6 starts film next year (after Diesel wraps Riddick 3) with a pencilled release date of May 27, 2013. There’s still no cofirmation on whether everyone’s favourite scowling baldy bonce Jason Statham will make an appearance…
