Like the saying every good thing has to come to an end, “Fast and Furious” saga will soon be drawing a conclusion to their world class franchise, unveiled star Vin Diesel. Read on.
With “Furious 7” smashing the box office, no would expect trouble on the set of “Furious 8,” indeed that’s not the case. As previously reported, Universal Pictures was having difficulties in locking down a helmsman, for the forthcoming “Fast and Furious 8” which is already slated for a theatrical release on Apr. 14, 2017.
According to comicbook.com, Diesel recently wrote on his ultra-popular Facebook page to unveil, “Fast and Furious 8” has no director yet, while he also confirmed several other important facts from the franchise.
“Universal has been so good to me and so trusting of the vision… they have been like family… I promised the studio I would deliver one last Trilogy to end the saga.” Diesel wrote.
Yet again, Diesel has officially confirmed that “Fast 8,” will mark the starting of a new trilogy which would draw a line to the saga. As previously reported by THR back in 2014, Donna Langley, Universal Pictures chairperson, had mentioned possibly there could be three more franchise after “Furious 7,” but Diesel’s facebook post seems to be the initial endorsement to intentions of inaugurating a trilogy which will wrap up series with “Fast and Furious 10.”
However, Diesel also mentioned that in his next post he will declare the director of “Fast 8” while no one has yet read the script. It seems like the studio will make decisions soon, but nothing much can be expected until it is official. It would be interesting to find out the next director hired by Diesel and Universal.
