Few film franchises have gone into six installments. But then few film franchises have been such enormous box office hits as The Fast and the Furious series. Now it appears that, after four installments already released, NBC Universal could be on its way to filming numbers five and six together for staggered release.

The news was broken by none other than Vin Diesel himself, the star of the film series, on his Facebook page. According to Diesel:
If 2009's 'Fast and Furious' was chapter one, what writer Chris Morgan just delivered is Chapter 2 and chapter 3.
I have never been submitted a two story saga from a studio before... it is very exciting, and shows a commitment level that is hard not to respond to.
Excited about the sexy locations the filming of this sag...
Chris Morgan was the writer behind the last two installments (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Fast and Furious), and according to Diesel, he's already written the next two screenplays. That, of course, doesn't mean they've both been approved for production, but with the director, writer and lead actor reportedly already on board, the studio would have to have gone speed-blind to pass up these cash cows.

      Ridiculous movies for sure, but you can hardly blame them for making more if people are still gonna spend money to go watch them. Have a problem with F&F? Do like I do: don't watch them.

      I have to admit that for as fake as most of the driving scenes are, I do enjoy the cars and find the movies entertaining for what they are. Except the second one—eesh.

      Remember when movies were standalone entities? Like Scarface? Scarface didn't need a freaking sequel, and I hope they don't decide that it does.

        Well, not totally. As long as they've got good direction, it's fine.

        Take the Alien franchise for example: 1 Ridley Scott, 2 James Cameron, 3 David Fincher, 4 Jean-Pierre Jeunet. You can't really get a better group to do a series of movies over two decades than that.

        Then they came along and bastardized it with AvP movies, that are contrived and stupid. The first one was watchable once, but the second one should be erased from memory.

        F&F started out stupid, with bad acting, and has gone through 4 fims unchanged.

      Vin Diesel is also on my death pool.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Vin Diesel made a huge mistake for not appearing in the sequel. I don't think teh FF franchise will last.

      Just hope the FT isn't ruined by being featured

      There is nothing wrong with fun movies if they are well executed. These movies are vapid and horrible.

      Well done fun, popcorn, light movies are: Top Gun, Ghostbusters, Goonies, The Hangover, Batman, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, The Rock, etc. The Fast and Furious franchise; however, is a flaming turds and blight on the movie business. Even by B movie standards they are horrible. I can believe people defend this crap.

      Crappy acting, questionable story lines, but they are still fun movies to watch.

      IMO Tokyo Drift had the most complete package.

      Maybe GM etc will try to get some cars in there to boost sales (unlikely)

      Great, another fake "driving" film.
        • 5 Years Ago
        It's like pr0n. Do you watch it for the acting? I like the action.
        • 5 Years Ago
        And just like porn, it's a substitute for the real thing. It's pathetic.
