Here’s some good news and some bad: Vin Diesel has announced three new films of the Fast & Furious series. And the bad news is that this trilogy will be last in the series.
Diesel, aka Dominic Toretto for the series’ fans, took to Facebook to announce Universal’s approval for the trilogy, beginning Furious 8. The film is yet to get a director after Furious 7 director James Wan refused to return.
Talking about the closing trilogy, Diesel wrote, “The fans of the Fast & Furious SAGA are the best fans in the world...” he wrote. “Since I became the Producer in 2008, you have been with me every step of the way... literally giving me feedback that proved invaluable. Thank you... 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.”
Furious 7 made $1.5 billion worldwide and was one of the biggest hits of this summer. Furious 8 will star Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and Michelle Rodriguez.
