The Fast and Furious franchise will end with another three movies, Vin Diesel says.
With seven movies released since 2001, the Fast and Furious series has become one of the most successful movie franchises in history, with the latest movie breaking the $1-billion mark worldwide. In a post on his Facebook page, Diesel confirmed that no one has been offered the role of director for the eighth movie in the franchise, nor has a script been drafted. He promised Universal that he would help deliver one last trilogy to end the saga, meaning we’ll see at least 10 Fast and Furious movies before the spin-offs likely start appearing.
It’s evident that Diesel is approaching the final three movies with special care, as the franchise will be moving forward without one if its main stars, Paul Walker. Walker tragically died in an accident nearly two years ago in his Porsche Carrera GT while being driven by Roger Rodas. No timeline has been given for the filming for the eighth film, but Diesel did promise that he’ll announce a director in due time, but is not rushing to any decisions to make sure the franchise ends on a high note.
