That’s the name I came up with for the tenth film: FAST & FUR10US. Like it? Get it? It’s genius. Thank you.
Many thought that Universal would end the franchise after the unexpected death of Paul Walker, but those people vastly underestimated how fucking awesome making loads and loads of cash is fuck that dead dude I’ll make a goddamn Fast and Furious if Vin Diesel and the Rock and Ludacris and whoever the chick is all die if I want to, hell, isn’t Google making those self-driving cars, why the fuck do I need to pay actors anymore? That’s more profit!
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Universal’s chairman, Donna Langley, said pretty much that.
Speaking of franchises, Furious 7 will be the last one with Paul Walker, sadly. Does the series stand without him?
LANGLEY: I believe it does. We think there’s at least three more. Paul is, and always will be, an integral part of the story. But there are many other great characters, and it’s also an opportunity to introduce new characters. I think it’s still a growing franchise. We’ll see what happens with Furious 7, obviously, but our box office has grown over the past three or four films and internationally, in particular. So we think that there’s more to mine there. But we’re of course very mindful about fatigue.
Hollywood. Where dead horses are beaten so viciously that they’ve been pulverized into nothing but a paste, yet people still try to smash up the dust paste and eventually we are all standing in a six-foot deep hole in the ground wondering how we got there.
I can’t wait to watch all these movies.
