Fast and Furious 7 will hit theaters 13 months after Fast and Furious 6

Apr. 16, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Well, that was a bit unexpected. Despite rumors that FAST AND FURIOUS 6 would be filmed back to back with a seventh movie, Vin Diesel just announced at CinemaCon that FAST AND FURIOUS 7 is officially happening and will hit theaters on July 11, 2014, which is just over a year after the release of FAST AND FURIOUS 6, which hits May 24, 2013. The news is somewhat surprising seeing that director Justin Lin has been in back and forth negotiations to come back for the seventh chapter. Word is now that Universal is looking at James Wan, director of INSIDIOUS and THE CONJURING, to take over directing duties on the film.

Universal is either confident or overconfident with this news. Sure, FAST FIVE was a big success but FAST AND FURIOUS 6 is still in post-production. I am sure it is going to be a success at the box office, but it could also crash and burn. This is the sixth chapter in the franchise, a feat rarely matched for anything outside of horror franchises. But, those franchises all had diminishing returns as the film number increased.

Diesel confirmed that the main cast including himself, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, and Tyrese would all be coming back for the seventh film, which may tell you who will or will not survive the upcoming sixth movie. I think this is a bold move that makes fiscal sense, but to me undermines FAST AND FURIOUS 6. This would probably have been better news if the rumored surprise ending were left as the only word on another sequel. Now, that mystery has been dispelled.

Anyone excited that part seven is now a lock?

Too soon for a sequel, one every year can easily burn people out and also hurt the overall product from a rush job.

Not sure how this would play out. I think it would be cool if they set Fast 7 after Tokyo Drift and brought in that Lucas Black kid. But I dunno, aside from keep logical continuity between movies, I never really saw the cliffhanger ending motif being used too effectively in this series. Seems better to have a one off movie adventure.

Fast and Furious 7 will likely be the last, I hope.

I'm under the impression FF7 will be the last one since it's heading back to LA where it all started which really gives it that sense of closure.

This happens because none of these actors are busy with other projects.

Still think Universal sold out on Justin Lin, but if they get James Wan, I guess thats a fair trade.

With Fast Six, how can up the ante with Fast Seven? Maybe driving vertically along the side of the building perhaps.

It sounds like the Jurassic Park sequel is being rushed as well, but I'm optimistic for that one. Fast Six looks like it will be just lots of fun and the franchise is on something of a winning streak, so I hope Fast Seven continues that.

bring us full cricle

This is only a good idea if they decide to bring us full circle to the end of Tokyo drift that is how the series should end
