The Rock Reveals How Plans For Fast Six And Fast Seven Are A-Changin’

I assume we can take The Rock’s word for it when he passes down details on his upcoming movies  – this is the man, after all,  with good enough sources to be able to pre-empt President Obama.

So let’s trust him when he tells us that plans to shoot the sixth and seventh Fast and the Furious films back to back have been scrapped. But why?

Here’s the quote, courtesy of MTV:

We were going to try that because it [would] make sense to have the same crew and have everybody there in one place, but I think we’re dealing with some weather issues, so from what I know we’re going to shoot Fast 6 first and then worry about Fast 7  a little later.

Well, I’m already worrying about them both now, in my way…

…and now I’m over it.

I’m not really a fan of these films at all, but I could respect the efficiency of mass producing them. Really, I wish they’d just shoot five more, all in one go, get it over with and then stop wasting resources and man hours, and let everybody go off to make something more interesting while the films are dripped out over the span of a few years. That seems the perfect way to handle these “churn franchises.” Added bonus: the stars will appear to grow up more slowly than their audiences and the wrinkle levels will be kept pretty steady.

If you are looking forward to more Fasts, you’ll likely be encouraged by the other info Mr. Rock had to share:

We’re going to be in the U.K., we’re going to be in Germany, from what I know. That’s the early talks. And we’re going to start shooting in May.

So, when you see a load of Mini Coopers racing around Carnaby in July, you’ll know why.
