The Fast and the Furious is probably the highest grossing automotive movie franchise of all time and rightly so. With the first film debuting back in 2001 we’ve since been treated to no fewer than three other installments with the last being Fast and Furious, where the two main members of the original cast, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker were reunited in co-star status. The reason why the Fast and Furious movies work is a simple one. You’ve got amazing cars, great stunts, hot chicks and loads and loads of action. Sure there is a plot, but quite honestly it’s somewhat secondary to everything else. Over the years the movies have built up quite a fan base and because of this people are wondering what will be next in the series and if the original cast will still be present.
Vin Diesel, in a recent Facebook comment stated that, “If 2009’s ‘Fast and Furious’ was chapter one, what writer Chris Morgan just delivered is chapter 2 and chapter 3.”
Basically that means in the next few years we’re going to be treated to a few more “prequels” that are sure to be filled with more automotive mayhem. Hopefully though the stories will be pretty straight forward and we won’t be left guessing as to what the hell is going on.
