A Final Fast & Furious Trilogy?

vin dieselCinema Blend points to a Facebook post by Vin Diesel suggesting the Fast & Furious series will have an end date in the coming years.

Universal has been so good to me and so trusting of the vision… they have been like family,” wrote Diesel. “I promised the studio I would deliver one last Trilogy to end the saga.” The previous trilogy was said to have begun with Fast 5, so Furious 8 would be the beginning of that final set of films.

Diesel also commented on the search for the next film’s director, a seemingly difficult task. “My producing partner Neal would love for me to just sign off on a director, but this is too special a franchise,” Diesel explained. “So these matters have to be very carefully handled. To be clear, NO ONE has been offered to helm Fast 8 yet… let alone seen a script.” Notice he referred to the film as “Fast 8,” which may yet be the title as Fast & Furious films can easily alternate between their two word options.

He also promise his next post will reveal the name of the person, or persons, hired to direct the film.
