I (genuinely) enjoy the Fast and Furious franchise…

except that piece of shit third installment. Which doesn’t even really count because in the whole sequence of things it’s currently the final installment. ANYWAY!

I gave Fast Five one of the best reviews out of all of the movies released in 2011. And I don’t regret it nor would I consider taking back that rating. I stand by that film – it was entertaining with a sound plot and what more can you ask for? It managed to blend car chases with a heist. It had some heart and the characters even developed a little bit. The point of this post is to bring you some excellent news in the world of F&F…

FAST & FURIOUS 6 AND 7 ARE GO! Vin Diesel said:

“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,” the actor, who is also a producer on the series, told the the trade publication.

Which is awesome. Honestly, if both the sixth and seventh can be on the same level as the fifth, I’m all in. And if you don’t believe me about Fast Five, Empire Magazine gave it a spot in their top 20 films of 2011.

The Statham rumors are still just rumors but, the good news is that:

Universal chairman Adam Fogelson has likewise suggested that Fast and Furious 6 (and, by default, Part 7) will also continue the trend established in Fast Five – by moving the series closer to the classic heist/caper genre, while still incorporating the hyper-kinetic chase sequences that the franchise is so well-liked for.

Niiiiiice!
