Vin Diesel gave an update on Furious 8, while revealing that there still may be three more films to come from the Fast & Furious franchise. The 48-year-old actor has been pretty mum about what’s to come from the box office smash hit’s future, especially after Furious 7, which said goodbye to Paul Walker’s character following the actor’s tragic death.
Not only is Furious 8 coming in full effect, possibly sometime in 2017, but producers might be planning on doing three more films.
Diesel took to his Facebook page to write on the update, where he implied that the franchise would be coming to an official close after one more trilogy of movies.
“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...” he penned to fans.
According to that update, it seems like there is no official director for the future films, but with the success of the movies in the past from the franchise, it shouldn’t be difficult to get a major director on board. We can only assume that the first film of the triology implied will be Furious 8, with the whole cast ready to film sometime in the near future.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
