I guess it makes sense. How many characters, main ones and otherwise, are in the franchise after the last movie? About thirty the last time I counted. (Okay, maybe not thirty, but it sure feels like it, right?)
With so many characters, franchise star Vin Diesel, director Justin Lin, and screenwriter Chris Morgan have all but confirmed that there won’t be just a part six, there will be a part seven. Apparently when the boys sat down to map out what they wanted to do in a part six, they realized they needed a whole ‘nother movie, and the studio, it appears, was more than happy to oblige them. I guess $626 million worldwide in box office for the obscenely ridiculous “Fast Five” made them, uh, extremely amendable to such an ambitious project.
No word on the plot of the sixth and seventh movie, or if they’ll be a single, continuing two-parter or standalone stories. Just that the two parts are being written simultaneously, and we presume, eventually shot back-to-back to cut down on cost.
What we do know, though, is that Diesel and Paul Walker will of course be back, as well as new castmember Dwayne Johnson. As hinted at at the end of “Fast Five”, both Michelle Rodriguez and Eva Mendes are also expected back for another round of fast cars, sexy girls, and ludicrous narrative plotting.
