The Fast & Furious crew will ride again — and again, and again.
“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,” he wrote.
Diesel also addressed concerns about a missing Furious 8 director:
“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." Nevertheless, Diesel said he will announce a director in his next post.
The Fast & Furious franchise has been hugely commercially successful. All but the third installment have made over $100 million domestically, and the most recent movie, Furious 7, made over $350 million domestically and $1.5 billion worldwide. No wonder they won’t put on the brakes.
