Buckle Up: There Will Be a Sixth Fast and the Furious Film

There will be a sixth film in the Fast and the Furious series, because Vin Diesel isn't done being quick and angry.

Fast Five, the fourth sequel to 2001's The Fast and the Furious is coming out in April, but star Vin Diesel and producer Neal Moritz are already working on another. Collider's Steve "Frosty" Weintraub interviewed Moritz and got the scoop on the upcoming sixth film. Moritz says he and Diesel "already know what the sixth movie is," and are on the verge of starting a draft. Weintraub asked the producer to elaborate a little, and Moritz acquiesced, "And we're starting to get serious about it right now. We just finished the movie like 4 or 5 weeks ago and we just needed a break, and now we're gonna start focusing on that."

Fast Five is the first film in the series to feature Dwayne Johnson (Be Cool, Southland Tales, The Scorpion King), who was reportedly excited about the ease with which his character could be spun off. Perhaps we have another multi-picture tough-guy franchise in the works?

Mortiz is a prolific producer, having worked on projects from I Know What You Did Last Summer, Cruel Intentions, xXx, Evan Almighty, I Am Legend, and all five Fast and Furious movies, in addition to television shows such as Tru Calling, Prison Break, and The Big C. He has five films coming out this year in addition to Fast Five, including The Green Hornet and Battle: Los Angeles.

I'd complain, but, fast cars, bad guys and Vin Diesel.
They're the perfect rainy saturday evening films.

Cool, I suppose.
To be honest, I didn't even know there were 6 films in the series, so I might see this at some point. Maybe not.

So they're trying to keep up with Saw?

^same, plus I hear they're doing another xXx film. WITH Vin Diesel. dont ask my how, I dont know either, I'm just excited for another xXx Vin Diesel movie.

besides, this is OLD news.

I really like these movies, but has anyone else noticed that with every iteration (with the exception of Tokyo Drift I guess) the titles sound more and more like porn titles?

The Fast and The Furious, Too Fast Too Furious, Fast and Furious, Fast Five, I Reach Climax Quickly And Am Generally In A State of Displeasure While Doing So.

Wow thats quite the resume hes got there. Those are some very different movies. Im looking forward to The Green Hornet and Battle Los Angeles, I just pray its not another Skyline... aaaaaaawwwww now I remember Skyline... why, WHY!?!

What idiots are still paying them money for these movies. No-one I know has watched more than a few minutes of any but the first 2!

You can't keep going to movies hoping it will be better than the last one, that just makes them produce another!

Don't take them seriously? Just enjoy them for what they are. Its a fun series to kick back and just watch.

Just like the title says. The cars are fast and the actors are furious. Who cares? 1 star of four

Nobody else thought of the fabela part of CoD MW 2 at some point of he trailer?
I think their marketing division knows their stuff.

Hmm... xXx? That movie was amazing, yet the second one sucked. Way to kill off Vin Diesel, too. Now he is stuck making these movies... Then again, as long as it isn't as bad as Tokyo Drift was, guess I can't complain...

Oh, and the black cop guy, The Rock? I really can't take him serious anymore after that tooth fairy movie...

I didn't even know they'd made a fourth film, nevermind a fifth and now a sixth.

I predict this film will be decidedly middle-of-the-road and gross well at the box office.

Yup, got that.

I think less plot, more cars. Why the fuck are they doing that? Mind you, I haven't gotten around to seeing 4 yet.

Hah dragging a vault and using it to ram cop cars... epic.

I might have to go on a fast and furious binge before this comes out... the movies are so bad they're good!

Go for it! I fucking love these films. Eye candy at it's finest. Then again I am biased towards highly modified imports.

Wait what? Another xXx? How? In the second one Vin Diesel's character is said to have died. Oh well, I suppose they'll retcon that out of existence.

That said, I'll see both movies. But not in theaters.

yet more evidence that mindless shit sells.

theres allrdy 5? i thought that there was like 3, 4 tops.

I'm amazed a series can consistently maintain a very high level of badness and still be successful.

They have their audience. Fast cars and music appeal to a particular segment of the movie going public so these films make money.

That made me giggle a lot and cheered my up immensely ^.^

OT: I dont mind the non-spinoff F&F films so i will probably see this at one point or another

Not if I can help it.

Which I really can't.

Dammit.

A... sixth?!? Bu-but they haven't even released the fifth one yet!!

Oh well, I won't complain too much. Yeah they aren't very "good" films, but a movie doesn't have to be "good" to be entertaining. Plus, I do have a weak spot for Japanese tuners, as long as they aren't too ricified.

I don't count Tokyo Drift as part of the series, but 5 is my favorite number all the same.

Let's drive!

Nice to see Dwayne getting back into action. His not-so-actiony films didn't even get my interest.

That's interesting. Tokyo Drift is the only one I was tied down and forced to watch with my 'friends.' It was stupefyingly bad. Not Star Wars prequel bad, but bad. And the product placement was so crass and distracting I couldn't believe I was the only one who wanted to get up and turn the movie off.

The series probably isn't for me, but if you don't consider Tokyo Drift up to the level of the other movies maybe I shouldn't judge them all by it's example.

This is more like 75% action and 25% of actual racing and cars. I am DISAPPOINT!

There was a THIRD film?
Well then... Interesting?
I think I'll go hide under my rock again.

What the hell kind of plot-twisting have they got going on in this one?

That's Toretto and O'Connor, yeah. But then there's Han (Tokyo Drift), Tej (2 Fast 2 Furious) and Roman (also 2 Fast 2 Furious).

At least they're keeping the cast together. I'm hoping it's not going to be too convoluted to follow. But then again, I've got a feeling they aren't too worried about the plot anymore.

I admit to not watching 3-5, but one and two qualify as quite irrelevant to my interests.

Its like the Saw of douchebag movies.

This is the fifth film, they're planning on six.

I hate the series but I love it at the same time, they make great popcorn movies if you don't think logically. Anyone remember the first one where Paul Walker is doing his first race in his supra against Vin Diesel and somehow after using his nitrous his fucking floor panel decides to make a random exit? What exactly caused that? It wasn't even their idea to do that, it was some moron producers idea, but still! Or with the whole "100,000$ into a Honda civic" like really? How could you possibly put 100grand into a civic? What's the engine made out of? GOLD?!

I loved the third one though, especially after the movie when I saw people in FWD cars try to drift out of the parking lot and one of them hitting a light post in the middle of the lot. Good times :)

Cough anyway off on a tangent there :P I'd still like to see it! :P

The third one was the best IMO.
But it's the best of the shit-pile so that's not saying much.
I can't watch them with any other person in the room anymore or I'll get asked to leave. The amount of automotive bullshit they have injected (Hah!) into these movies over the years make my head hurt.

Did I hear the words 'One last job' in that trailer? No other words in the english language act so well as sequel bait...

I'm not a huge fan of the third one, either. I actually thought it was completely and utterly craptastic, not entertaining at all.

Now, the other ones - 1, 2, and 4 - are all entertaining. None of them are conventionally good movies, but they all manage to have the perfect amount of Saturday evening cheese. Try to watch the 4th one especially with an open mind. A movie doesn't have to be thought provoking and challenging and examples of art to be worth owning, and these are proof of that.

The third, however, is a total turd. Avoid it like the plague.

Also, I'm surprised more people haven't talked about how the rooftop chases look so much like Modern Warfare 2.
