Just in case you were wondering, as I'm sure you all were... from The Hollywood Reporter:
The sixth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise will be split into two movies. Vin Diesel... said that during the planning process of the new movie, the Fast and Furious creative team... realized that they would need a seventh movie to tell their story. The sixth and seventh are being written simultaneously... “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,” Diesel told THR... A coda at the end of the movie teases the return of a character played by Eva Mendes last seen in 2 Fast 2 Furious as well as the return of Michelle Rodriguez. “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,” Diesel explained.
So there ya have it; It'll be like a reunion celebration in #s 6 and 7.
Who's in, and who isn't?
Fast Five was blockbuster popcorn fun, but, even with the tease towards the end of it, I can't say that I'm looking forward to 1, let alone 2 more films in the franchise. What else could they do with it?
