Fast 6 In The Works Faster Than Fast Five Can Be released

Fast Five, the fifth installment of ‘The Fast & The Furious’ films is almost upon the masses, and wouldn’t you know it, someone out there wants Fast Six.

The Hollywood Reporter has this to say:

The writer of the third, fourth and fifth installments of Universal’s Fast and the Furious franchise (Fast Five opens April 29) has signed a two-year first-look production pact with the studio, a rare move in a time when companies are actually slashing producer deals.

Morgan will also begin writing Fast Six.

Morgan has been a key player in the Fast series, working alongside director Justin Lin, who directed the same three movies. Beyond Fast, Morgan also wrote Universal’s 2008 hit Wanted and 47 Ronin, the Keanu Reeves samurai epic currently in production. He also is developing for the studio a movie based on the popular Japanese monster game Bakugan.

Hey, I might be interested in seeing 47 Ronin and I’ll keep an eye out for Bakugan. But “Fast 6”? I don’t know. It’s another ballgame. A few days ago, it was announced that a Real Steel 2 was being written before the first film is proven at the box office. I wonder if this is a new trend for studios- but in this case, it is a sequel to a franchise series. A proven brand. Tricked cars, women in skimpy clothing and lots of characters calling each other bra.

No, seriously, the films do have a likeability factor to them. They are at least watchable. Still, there are those out there who think the Fast films are too much like fast food. Tastes good but bad for you in the long run. Y’know? I wonder if the foreign markets can work with that – this time they call it ‘Furious Five’ instead of Fast Five.
Anyway…which would the int’l friends like to see first? Another Furious or Bakugan? That’s not a trick question.

  1. I really do like these movies, with the excetion of the the second one! The only problem I have is keeping them in timeline order!!!

  2. I’m sorry Darren, I’d rather see Fast 6, all the way up to Fast 16, when they are cruising around in there tricked out cadillacs and golf carts. I was there when the first ‘Fast’ movie was released, in high school, it was a hit to us, we still watch the first one at least three times a year, we are very pumped for this release. I even took my 3000 GT VR4 out of the garage for the first time this season to get ready. Yes, I sound incredibly lame, however, this is the truth, and I am proud of it.

  3. From the beginning, movies were made to entertain the masses, no matter if they were good or bad. This category will always be part of the movie industry. People need an action packed movie for their summer nights and chances are, we’ll all end up seeing it. 5 and 6.
