Vin Diesel has confirmed that the Fast and Furious franchise will end with one final trilogy consisting of the eighth, ninth and tenth installments.
Diesel confirmed the news on his Facebook page and also revealed that he will be the producer for the last three films. He also confirmed that a director has yet to be selected for Fast and Furious 8 and said that no one has yet to be offered the chance to direct the film nor seen a script.
On his Facebook, Diesel said “The fans of the Fast & Furious SAGA are the best fans in the world… 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.
My producing partner Neal would love for me to just sign off on a director, but this is too special a franchise, so these matters have to be very carefully handled. To be clear, NO ONE has been offered to helm Fast 8 yet… let alone seen a script.
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.
I will announce the directors on my next post…”
Furious 7 has proven to be the most successful film of the franchise grossing in excess of $1.5 billion worldwide at the box office.
