Yes, we know we’re still a month out from the release of Fast And Furious 6
, but news of yet another sequel of the popular car-themed action series has surfaced.
That’s right, Fast And Furious 7
is in the works, and it’s being fast tracked for a release on July 11, 2014. The previous movies have come out roughly two years apart.
The announcement of Fast And Furious 7
was made by none other than Vin Diesel, the actor who plays co-lead Dom Toretto and also serves as producer for the movies.
He was speaking in front of a group of cinema managers in Las Vegas on Tuesday, an event also attended by most of the latest movie’s co-stars including Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster and Tyrese Gibson.
It’s not clear which characters--or cars--will return for the next installment, though we know director James Wan will take over from Justin Lin, who was responsible for the last four movies.
No other details have been released just yet, though Variety
reports that Diesel described Fast And Furious 7 as “probably the biggest one of all.”
