'Fast & Furious 6' and 'Fast & Furious 7' Being Written Back-to-Back

Vin Diesel reveals that the storyline currently being worked on is too big to be contained in one movie.

The gang will reunite for Fast & Furious 6 and 7

Fast & Furious 6, which is currently in pre-production, is going to be split into two movies, reveals Vin Diesel. The star/producer has said that the creative team, which includes director Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan, have too much story to contain in one single film.

" With the success of this last one, and the inclusion of so many characters, and the broadening of scope, when we were sitting down to figure out what would fit into the real estate of number six, we didn't have enough space.

We have to pay off this story, we have to service all of these character relationships, and when we started mapping all that out it just went beyond 110 pages. The studio said, 'You can't fit all that story in one damn movie!'"

Both screenplays will be written back-to-back, and they may be filmed that way as well. It wasn't revealed if Fast & Furious 6 and Fast & Furious 7 will be a two-parter, or if they will be stand-alone movies. So far, the sequels have always ended with a to-be-continued plot line. The climax of Fast & Furious 6 may be a bit more detailed, with higher risks at stake.

Fast Five teased the return of characters played by Michelle Rodriguez and Eva Mendes.

Fast & Furious 6 was released May 24th, 2013 and stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot. The film is directed by Justin Lin.

Fast & Furious 7 comes to theaters April 10th, 2015 and stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Kurt Russell, Jordana Brewster, Lucas Black. The film is directed by James Wan.

    I heard the scripts were being written the same, word for word, and only the titles would be different.

    This is awesome just so long as they FINALLY end up in Tokyo in one of these. Obviously they prob won't be there in 6 due to how Fast Five ended but hopefully Fast & Furious 7 sees the gang in Tokyo.

  18. the Narrator

    I have to wonder how much of those "beyond 110 pages" are actual dialogue bits, and story details, and how much of it is car chase specifics. Lol.

    But seriously, this is okay, but after this... well, it's like what @bawnian-dexeus, a line has to be drawn some where. I thought it was drawn (and passed) a long time ago, and were it not for the last installment, I'd be far less inclined to give a crap.

    Awesome! Great news! I hope they take the 6th or 7th to Germany. I wanna see them head to the autobahn, that sh*t would be badass. Take the franchise to an even faster location.

    This is that one franchise that gets better with each film, and you have a group of actors you enjoy watching as they kick ass, and you never get tired of it, even when you think in that deeper past of your mind that the line must be drawn somewhere. Gotta love it!
