Paul Walker Talks Fast and Furious 5: Hello, Brazil?

I haven’t seen Justin Lin’s “The Fast and Furious 4″ yet (I’ll get around to it, don’t push me), so I don’t know if the ending spelled out where the fifth installment in the car franchise would take place next. That mystery is no longer a mystery, as according to star Paul Walker, the sequel would likely take place in Brazil, and would once again follow Vin Diesel’s Dominic and his Brian down south to, one presumes, much car racing action and bad guy busting.

In an interview with MYfm’s Valentine (I haven’t a clue what that is, either), Walker said this about FF5 (via LAT):

“This was supposed to be it. There wasn’t supposed to be the open-ended closing like there was… But without question, with the way things opened up, Vin and I will be coming back, we’re making a fifth one, and we’re going to Brazil, that’s it.”

You can listen to the audio interview for yourself here.

If you’re wondering why Walker and Diesel would come back for a fifth one, or why Universal has already greenlit the sequel, all you need to do is look at the film’s opening weekend: $72.5 million. In just two weeks of release, the film has already earned just south of $150 million worldwide. It’s on its way to hitting the $200 million mark without breaking a sweat. And then there’s the DVD, and cable rights…
