I still have no idea how Fast & Furious (aka The Fast and the Furious 4) made $71 million opening weekend… but it did. Honestly it was a pretty entertaining film too, which is surprising since all the other ones suck. Still… hollywood economics my friends. The film has made over $350 million world wide, and since Vin Diesel and Paul Walker both can’t sell tickets to any other movie they get involved in, you know another Fast and Furious was going to be on the way.
Well… according the the screenwriter Chris Morgan, it’s already getting drawn up. The folks over at MovieWeb give us these details:
“It seems like there will definitely be another one,” Morgan told MTV News in an exclusive interview. “I just got out of a lunch with Universal, just pitching the story around. We were figuring out if we do another one, and what it would be. It has to come from the characters, so where are these characters after this film – what are they doing?”
Oh BULLSHIT! The F&F movies have nothing to do with the characters or story. It’s about fast cars zooming around, and when it’s done right they’re about exciting action. Nothing else. No one cares. “All about the story” my ass.
There will be a F&F 5 even if they get a monkey to scribble out a script, because it just flat out doesn’t matter.
