Fast and Furious Franchise To Get “More Intimate and Gritty”?

It’s official, Furious 7 is a massive hit at the box office, claiming over $380 million dollars at the box office worldwide, and with more movies already in store, the only question becomes, “Where will the series go from here?”

Furious 7 Director James Wan may have the answer:

“I think the only way to sort of pump people’s expectation with the next one is to not go bigger, but maybe go more intimate. Maybe go more gritty. I think that will just completely undermine everyone’s expectation and take people by surprise and I think that’s what this franchise has done so well. Just constantly surprising people with what they’re gonna do and I think that if they’re smart about it, they will go the opposite way and do something very different.”

Well with its 8th movie no doubt coming, maybe it will go in the director Wan wants. We’ll just have to wait and see for ourselves.
