If you haven't had enough of the "Fast and Furious" movies, don't worry. Vin Diesel just announced via Facebook that there will be three more movies added to the saga to end it for good. As of right now, there isn't even a script for the eighth movie, but Diesel says he will soon announce the directors.
As the project is "too special a franchise," Diesel has been careful of who will head up the last three movies. To quote his recent Facebook post, "My producing partner Neal would love for me to just sign off on a director" He goes on to say, "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."
The latest installment of the franchise grossed over $1 billion in just 17 days worldwide, which was two days quicker than what it took both "The Avengers" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" to reach that same amount. With big box office numbers like this, it's no wonder the studio wants to capitalize on the franchise for as long as possible.
We don't know when these movies will come out, but we're curious what direction the final three films will take.
