Vin Diesel Confirms 6th And 7th 'Fast And Furious' Movies!

It was reported recently during an interview with  The Hollywood Reporter that the next 'Fast And Furious' movie will have to be split into two movies and both are being written at the same time. Vin Diesel has said that during the process of the new movie, the Fast and Furious creative team, which includes director Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan, realized that they would need a seventh movie to tell their story.

"With the success of this last one, 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," Diesel commented.

The last movie, "Fast Five" changed the franchise with the involvement of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and teased the return of a character played by Eva Mendes last seen in "2 Fast 2 Furious" as well as the return of Michelle Rodriguez.

"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," Diesel explained. "The studio said, ‘You can’t fit all that story in one damn movie!’"

Diesel did not reveal details on whether the two movies would be two-parters or two standalone movies.

Contrary to everything I do and don't love in the movie world I'm a massive Fast and Furious fanboy and can't wait for more movies in the series! :P
