Fast and Furious: Universal Could See “Three More”

by at . Comments

As that Furious 7 trailer landed, it set hearts-a-racing for fans of the Fast and Furious series. And what is interesting about this movie series is the box office for the last three films has grown and grown and grown. So, why stop at seven?

We know there will be a Fast and Furious 8, and previous helmer Justin Lin has reportedly been asked to direct.

“We think there’s at least three more,” Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley said to THR.

“Paul is, and always will be, an integral part of the story. But there are many other great characters, and it’s also an opportunity to introduce new characters.”

Langley believes that they may have just scratched the surface of this world. “I think it’s still a growing franchise. We’ll see what happens with Furious 7, obviously, but our box office has grown over the past three or four films and internationally, in particular,” she said.

“So we think that there’s more to mine there. But we’re of course very mindful about fatigue.”

Furious 7 stars Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and Elsa Pataky. The flick lands April 3, 2015.

Furious 7 Quotes

[remembering the time he had with Brian] I used to say I live my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that's why we were brothers - because you did too. No matter where you are, whether it's a quarter mile away or half way across the world. The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room, right here, right now. Salute mi familia. You'll always be with me. And you'll always be my brother.

Dominic Toretto

Deckard Shaw: You shouldn't have messed with my family.
Dominic Toretto: I told your brother the same thing.
