‘One more Fast & Furious trilogy to come,’ says Diesel…

Contrary to reports late last week that Fast & Furious 8 was getting it tough to find a director and star/producer Vin Diesel might be part of the problem, the actor has taken to his Facebook page (bottom) to put fans’ minds at ease… and then some.

Diesel said: “My producing partner Neal [Moritz] 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…”

There seems to be some confusion as to when the last trilogy starts… some think it will be three trilogies, ie nine movies, while others think Diesel means the last trilogy kicks off in the eighth movie.

Either way, the F&F franchise is here for another few years yet. We will wait to see who the directors are but we hope the series can maintain the momentum t has gathered over the last few instalments.

Fast & Furious 8 is due for release in April 2017

The fans of the Fast & Furious SAGA are the best fans in the world… Since I became the Producer in 2008, you have been…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
