Ever since "Fast 5", the "Fast and Furious" franchise has really stepped it up and has taken audiences and monetary success, by storm. Less than a few months after "Fast and Furious 6" released, the studio got busy lining up "Fast and Furious 7" to start filming, with director James Wan at the helm for the first time in the franchise. Now star Paul Walker has revealed that the momentum and series isn't planning on slowing down anytime soon.
The last film made an incredibly impressive $788 million for Universal Pictures, so color us unsurprised that the franchise will be continuing. We didn't know for how long however and now Walker gives us a little bit more insight into the studios plans.
Walker said, "Well, the studio supposedly wants 8, 9 and 10. I’ll be 50. Even if 7 were to [tank], there’s at least an 8. That’s a guarantee."
Until the cash cow, runs out of milk, this franchise may continue for eternity. It will be cool to see how Wan helps same the next film or two, after the cool groundwork set by Justin Lin.
