Vin Diesel, the star of the “Fast & Furious” franchise, recently made a surprise announcement during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. According to Diesel, the next installment of the franchise, tentatively titled “Fast X,” will be the start of a new trilogy of films.
The “Fast & Furious” franchise has been one of the most successful film franchises in recent history, grossing over $5 billion worldwide since the first film was released in 2001. The series has become known for its high-octane action, fast cars, and over-the-top stunts.
While some fans might be surprised to hear that the franchise is planning to continue for at least another three films, Diesel’s announcement shouldn’t come as too much of a shock. The franchise has been a cash cow for Universal Pictures, and the studio has already announced plans for spin-offs and other projects set in the “Fast & Furious” universe.
Diesel, who has been a central figure in the franchise since the beginning, didn’t reveal much about what fans can expect from the next trilogy of films. However, he did hint that the story would be a “saga” that would take the characters on a new journey.
The announcement comes as the latest film in the franchise, “F9,” is set to be released in June 2023. The film was originally scheduled for release in 2020 but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fans of the franchise have been eagerly anticipating the release of “F9,” which promises to be another high-octane thrill ride. The film will see the return of many fan-favorite characters, including Dominic Toretto (Diesel), Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson), and Tej Parker (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges).
In conclusion, it seems that the “Fast & Furious” franchise is not going anywhere anytime soon. With the announcement of a new trilogy of films, fans can look forward to even more high-speed thrills and over-the-top action from their favorite characters. The first film of the trilogy, “Fast X,” is sure to be eagerly anticipated by fans of the franchise.
