Vin Diesel Confirms ‘Fast and the Furious 6 & 7′ On the Way

vin diesel fast five sequels Vin Diesel Confirms Fast and the Furious 6 & 7 On the Way

Back when Screen Rant chatted with Vin Diesel on the set of Fast Five, the brawny actor briefly discussed how that film was being fashioned to serve as the middle chapter in a trilogy – with Fast and Furious 6 bringing the tale of Dominic Toretto (Diesel), Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker), and their fellow professional criminal/car racer types to a conclusion of sorts.

Rumors popped up in Fall 2011 that not only was Fast and Furious 7 also on the way, but that the sixth and seventh installments in the high-octane thrills franchise could shoot back-to-back and feature the addition of Jason Statham to a cast that already includes macho leading men like Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The Statham rumors are (officially) just hot air right now; similarly, there’s been no confirmation about the possibility of the Fast Five sequels being filmed together. However, new comments from Diesel do reveal that Fast and Furious 7 is being actively developed – in fact, Chris Morgan (who penned the last three chapters in the franchise) has begun scripting both the sixth and seventh movies, according to the actor.

Here is what Diesel told THR, with regards to how the planned (second) Fast and Furious trilogy evolved into a quadrilogy:

“With the success of ['Fast Five'], 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… 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. The studio said, ‘You can’t fit all that story in one damn movie!’”

Universal is (certainly) also anxious to keep this particular cash cow alive and well, especially if Fast and Furious 6 proves to be a box office smash – which it almost unquestionably will be. Thus, having a seventh installment written and ready to go before cameras quickly (assuming it isn’t simply shot simultaneously with Part 6) is something the studio would definitely approve of, regardless of any potential plot contrivances needed to make it happen.

That said: Diesel does have a point about Fast Five vastly expanding the “scope” and number of character-based subplots in the series, so a seventh chapter doesn’t (per se) require a huge stretch.

Fast Five left the door open for Johnson’s relentless federal agent Luke Hobbs to continue his pursuit of Dominic and Co. in Fast and Furious 6; by all accounts, the semi-antagonist will be brought back for the sixquel (?), which has long been expected to take place in Europe – a possibility also set up directly by Fast Five‘s mid-credits scene – and see the return of certain characters from previous installments in the series.

Universal chairman Adam Fogelson has likewise suggested that Fast and Furious 6 (and, by default, Part 7) will also continue the trend established in Fast Five – by moving the series closer to the classic heist/caper genre, while still incorporating the hyper-kinetic chase sequences that the franchise is so well-liked for.

Fast and Furious 6 is slated to hit U.S. theaters on May 24th, 2013, so expect to hear more about both that film and Fast and Furious 7 over the upcoming months.

    • Yes, that would be good, tokyo drift is the last 1 since in fast5 he went to tokyo, then in tokyo drift he had all the money he needed. We will find out in the 6th 1!!

  2. Please keep the movie goin and goin

    • u have to have the movies keep going and i agree to one of the other comments i wish they didnt kill hun and vince but im so happy that letty has come back dont stop all the fast and furious movies please there great

    • I wish they keep on going and going with the movies fast and the furious

  3. honestly i cant see there actually being 9 movies total as for dom and letty well that book is closed for 2 reasons one hes with officer neves now so unless she dies theres really no chance and second why would letty still be alive and yet not made contact with anyone??? now that vince is dead i think its safe to say more and more of our main characters will be going so what do we know dom stays alive atleast untill they get to tokyo han dies in tokyo well hes alone there so obviously giselle is gonna go and if she goes that means that atleast 2 of the other main female characters must die because lets face it theres only room for one woman to still be standing at the end of such a large franchise. my bets are on mia and officer neves going back to dom and letty with her attitude letty would most likely kill neves because she “stole her man” and mia would die by the hands of the goons who are run by the new “head honcho” crime lord along with mia and brians child which would make them filming 2 movies back to back mia and baby die in part 6 brian and dom get revenge part 7 so te new question on my mind is where does brian go once all is said and done well id say either jail or death death would make more sense but if he goes to jail they could find some way to throw him in with all his worst enemies from the past for instance guantanimo bay??? and if it leads there thats the end of part 7 but wait didnt i say it could go farther why is dom racing so many people in asia and japan even hes putting together a team to bust out brian they would drag this out as long as possible just to make more money “cash cows” and finally the ninth installment dom wages war on guantanimo bay and gets there only to find brian is already dead its all then pointless and he gets s*** in the back right through the heart with brians mangled body in his arms and guess what theyll leave things open just enough that sean the kid from tokyo drift will prove to be the next worthy character to take on the responsibility of the new target on luke hobbs mind and that my friends is the end of the fast and furious franchise oh and btw i dont think the fast and the furious 6 is the official name in berlin the traffic is quite heavy and every movie they change the type of name so use your imagination people what do you think it could be ive given you everything you need to finish this series all i need are the names to call them so we can send this stuff to justin lol.

    • U suck that is so wack y would that happen… We know u r not a writter…

    • Boo LIER! NOT TRUE!!

    • Dude u r sooo way wrong

  4. they need to make them more like Fast 1,2 and 3 now everything is all personal and not much to do with the cars at all
    Just my opinion

    • Im with u there it should defo have been more about cars and street racing it was more fun to watch and alot more exciting i meen come on u cant call a film fast and furious and then go on to detective crap it doesnt make any sense and before anyone asks yes i have seen all 5 and 1.2 and 3 are better than the other 2.

      • well if you think that is what fast and furious is all about your wrong. Right from the first film you could tell that it was about more the the cars and the races it was about family. i think if it was only about racing cars i wouldn’t watch it because it wouldn’t be crappy cause you can only do so much with racing but when it comes to family that is something everyone can relate to and that is what makes a good movie is something that people can relate to.

    • I think they should have more racing like they did in fast and the furious, i love fast five, but it doesnt show the street race where they won the blue car, Over all its a great series and i cant wait till fast 6 or whatever they call it…

  5. when are they going to bring shawn and dom togeether like they did in tokyo drift, they need to bring all the people together in one big movie

    • They are already doing something with Lucas Black, as the word I heard is they have already contacted him about reprising his roll…..

  6. number 5 just confused me hand dies in number 3 but then is alive in number 5? i mean unless the movies are like backward? personally i think the movies go in order 1,2,4,5,3,6,7 because it just doesnt make sense and also if letty comes back in number 6 then in number 4 why was there a funeral with a casket? so what there was some random body in there that everyone was mourning around i mean come on!

  7. number 5 just confused me han dies in number 3 but then is alive in number 5? i mean unless the movies are like backward? personally i think the movies go in order 1,2,4,5,3,6,7 because it just doesnt make sense and also if letty comes back in number 6 then in number 4 why was there a funeral with a casket? so what there was some random body in there that everyone was mourning around i mean come on!

  8. yoo Fast Six Superbowl trailer leaked: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cMXuxPqlzc

    • The series as it stands will be 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, then 7 then 3 or vise versa.

  9. i see were your going with this people dying like vince han and letty in previous films vince is defo dead you saw that happen. letty you saw her climbing out the car but you didnt see her dead after the gun shot so possible she could of got away. the funeral well whose to say they found her dna but it was so burnt up they assumed shed burned to a crisp with it. as for han you dont see a funeral or anything so whats to say he actually dies in the same respect as you thought letty was dead but shes not whats to say that the same goes for han you think hes dead but hes not. that would contradict the fact that vin diesel races shaun at the end of tokyo drift but whats to say han hasnt sent him to check the kid out and see what he thinks to him before recruiting him and letting him know han is alive. you see this come back from the dead stuff all the time in movies and sitcoms it never really makes sense but we still feed into it. we still buy the movie or go and watch it at the cinema it makes no odds whether we find it believable or not as long as its got half naked women fast cars action and a basic storyline were happy. the blokes are happy and the women get to drool over vin diesel ( kind of ironic seen as he bats for the same team but hey they can have there fantasy lol) any way bored now gonna watch fast 5 now lol

    • Wrong Vin Diesal is straight because he has a daughter called Hania Riley as his name when he was born was mark sinclair riley and has a feonce called Paloma Jimenez but to be fair he does sound a bit gay somtimes.

      p.s just correcting you

  10. if you look carefully at fastfive (8:31) you can tell that letty is still alive you see her on the train while there heading to the train with the cars in them

    • i just look at that exact moment and all you see is Mia’s head :)

    • thats not her, her nose is completely different

  11. I love all 5 parts of these movies

  12. Yeooo Brian and Dom are the cutest and the funniest is Roman n Maya is the prettiest u guys my mains I love all ya movies O.E
    Just in case Dome is a bosS

  13. I think that Dom and Letty are gonna go there seperate way after number 6 because of Dom leaving her in 4 to then supposidley die. i think that they will return to tokyo in the future and we will see that han has somehow survived like letty and maybe see the team take down Takashis uncle from the mafia with the help of the young kid shaun and maybe and then split up into smaller groups like Dom Brian Mia and see some more street races which i found alot more interesting to watch but it might all end with a big fanaley if brian rejoins the police force in which after spliting up there are reunited for one last time to help brian take down a big criminal again but with some deaths like maybe mia or brian die or maybe even dom and then after a major death like this they decide to respect there clost friend and not fight no more just go back to street racing and garages again as a big group.

    just my opinion

  14. What I really want to see in the next movie (fast 6) is, Mia and Brian’s Child. WE didn’t see it in the trailer, but then again they still could be in the movie. I’m asking this because I doubt Mia will wont to be a stay-home wife (but that’s just me) plus I want to see her in the action. So what happens to the child?

  15. I am a big fan of your work I can’t wait till fast and furious 6 come out I watch all the movies I like fast and the furious Tokyo drift

  16. I am a big fan of your work.I can’t wait till fast and furious 6 come out. I watch all the movies .I like fast and the furious Tokyo drift .

  20. Why giselle dead???oh s***..I like her character..I want giselle back in fast and furious 7 same like letty

  21. Fast and the furious is amazing! I hope that everyone that watches that will too.

  22. The order is 1,2,4,5,6,3

  23. thts owesme movie i was really enjoyed … Paul walker is my fav. hero in fast & furious . ….. grt job well done

    • 7 is gone to be bome

  24. I loved Fast and Furious 6!!!! I also love all of the Fast and Furious movies!!!! I hope they make another movie!!!! And I hope it comes out soon!!!! :-). :-)

  25. Tokyo drift doensn’t make too much sense to me, it has no beginning and no end, looks like something suspended in thin air sourrounded by things that relate to it when in fact nothing does. Bad idea to ever release tokyo drift, nevermind no actor from f@f franchise can be seen in tokyo drift with the exception of Han.
    Anyhow looking forward for ff 7 and until then keep on rockin’ !!!

  26. Who’s your favorite man;Vin Diesel or Dwayne Johnson ?

  27. I like to say that Vin Diesel’s the BESTEST man I’ve ever seen on FaceBook!!!!!!!!

  28. where is giselle(gal gadot)she is a good actress too.hope she will come back juz like letty in fast 7/8…

  29. I think they should do what they think is is right.
