Dwayne Johnson says Fast Six and Seven now shooting separately

Feb. 15, 2012by:

In an interview with MTV, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson dropped some interesting tidbits about the upcoming sequels to the Fast and the Furious franchise, the most notable being that they are no longer pursuing a back-to-back shoot for FAST SIX and FAST SEVEN.

"I don't think we're going to shoot them back-to-back," he said,  "We were going to try that because it wouldn't 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."

He also talked about the setting for the sequels:

"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," he said. "And we're going to start shooting in May."

So, no back-to-back shooting, European locations, and a start date in May.  Interesting.  I'm relieved that they aren't shooting the sequels back-to-back as it just feels like a recipe for disaster, not to mention overkill.  Do we really need a Fast and the Furious movie every year? 

Director Justin Lin, who helmed the last three films of the franchise, is back at it again.  I think he's really proven himself to be a deft action director and felt that FAST FIVE was absolutely the strongest of the series.  I was particularly happy to see the film transition from car racing to heist action, which apparently is the direction the series will continue to head. 

FAST SIX is likely to bow next year, but you can catch Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock in GI JOE: RETALLIATION on June 29, 2012.

Oh, and it would NOT suck if they brought back Elsa Pataky...

Extra Tidbit: They should invent a new category for the Oscars for "Best Sweaty Performance by an Actor in a motion picture" because Dwayne would take home the gold for his perpetual sweat sprinkle throughout Fast Five.

I hope we do get a variety of different cars in Fast 6 & 7. Something like the classic James Bond's Toyota that was used in "You Only Live Twice" or some other vintage cars and modify them up a bit. I wonder who the new characters in both movies gonna be.

AGREE!

the one thing that pissed me off about Fast Five was the very end where they had the brand new amazing looking Challenger about to race... and instead of shooting a race they turned it into a fucking half assed CG race for the credits! BLAH!

Shooting in the UK? I wonder if that's where The Stath would be involved, if indeed he is at all.
