‘Fast and the Furious 6′ Already in Development

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker Fast Five trailer Fast and the Furious 6 Already in Development

When Fast Five was officially greenlit last February, Vin Diesel enthusiastically confirmed the announcement on his Facebook page and claimed that a sixth The Fast and the Furious movie was also in the cards. Not surprisingly, the cast and crew’s focus shifted exclusively to production of the fifth installment and there hasn’t been much talk about where the series might go from there.

If the enthusiastic response to the Fast Five trailer is any indication, fans seem to have built up a tremendous amount of goodwill towards the series. Coupled with the overwhelming success of the previous entry, Fast & Furious (which was the highest grossing film in the series to date), it seems unlikely that Universal would want to hit the brakes on this franchise any time soon.

So it should come as no surprise then that Diesel and producer Neal Moritz are ready to start making plans for the next sequel. Speaking with Collider, Moritz explains:

“In Vin and my mind we already know what the sixth movie is, we’ve already been talking about it. Vin and I have had numerous conversations about what that might be. And we’re starting to get serious about it right now. We just finished the movie like 4 or 5 weeks ago and we just needed a break, and now we’re gonna start focusing on that.”

In the same interview Moritz reveals that there’s also a spin-off film in the works, which would be centered around Dwayne Johnson’s bounty hunter character from Fast Five. Although they haven’t begun tackling the script for that one just yet, Johnson is reportedly up for it and Moritz claims they’ll be pushing forward with it soon.

If nothing else, The Fast and the Furious series has done an admirable job of keeping things fresh. Rather than finding new ways to tweak the same basic premise, these films have consistently tried to break some new ground. While that’s  inevitably led to varying degrees of success for each installment, the overall result of that approach has been the sustained interest of a passionate fan base.

Sure, these movies have their staples but I think they’ve managed to satisfy the expectations of their fans and do something unique with all of those conventions. I’ll admit that they’re all pretty silly when you really get down to it, but the first and fourth in particular are ridiculously entertaining movies.

As for Fast Five – is there a red-blooded male out there whose interest isn’t piqued in the slightest by Dwayne Johnson hunting down Vin Diesel? We’ll find out if the film delivers when it hits theaters on April 29th, 2011.

  1. they need to make a fast and furious Tokyo drift 2 thats the best one out of all of them but take out the country guy and put paul walker in it.

    • oh man thats my least favorite one. none of the original people are in it. although if one of them was put in for the country dude i do agree that it could be a good movie.

    • Dude that one was the worst one!

    • In my opinion that was the worst movie of the series but as much as I like the series it was still pretty good. I would like to see how that last race between vin diesel and that country boy turned out. But as long as they have vin diesel in it I don’t care what the next movie is.

  2. I’m soooo excited to hear that there’s a Fast and Furious 6. The fifth movie was so amazing and very well done. Most series start failing after the first couple but this series has kept up amazingly. I’ve also heard rumors of Jason Statham possibly making an appearance in the 6th one and that would be awesome. That would be a whole lot of bad ass people in one movie. I’m so excited. Keep’em coming!! This series is my favorite and I would love nothing more than to keep spending my money on new movies in the series. Oh and the rumor of Michelle Rodriguez coming back as Letty is so exciting. I hope it’s true. Good luck with the production and I’m sure it will be just as amazing as all the others. SOOO EXCITED!!!!
    I also think a runoff with Dwayne Johnson’s character would be a really good idea.

  3. These amazing five movies have been the greatest series of badass action I have ever seen in my intire life and I’m 26,please keep up the great work guys
