Producer confirms The Fast and the Furious series to end at number 10

04.20.2017

I'll give the FAST AND FURIOUS series this much: I love the diversity of the cast. I also love how the series focuses on family (to an almost comical degree), since it is refreshing to see a franchise that doesn't have a protagonist bedding a different pretty lady each movie, even if there isn't anything inherently wrong with that. It's just nice to have variety.

However, I can't say that I've really been a fan of the franchise. I'm not much of a car person (as long as it runs I'm happy), so the first three or four never caught my attention, and even though I liked FAST 5 okay, it didn't blow me away either. I guess I just don't connect to its macho posturing shit, which seems to be the only mode every character seems to have (including the women). Of course the action in these films is awesome and badass, but if I don't care about the people behind the wheel, it's hard to care about the stunts.

This is all to say that I won't shed much of a tear when the series is set to end on its 10th entry. It seems it's a number that producer Neil Moritz, star Vin Diesel, and writer Chris Morgan all seem to agree on. There's a possibility it will go on of course (how many horror franchises have had false "Final Chapters"?), but as of right now that's the plan.

Here's what Moritz had to say in an exclusive interview with Collider:

Our plan is to go as quickly as we can under the idea that we gotta have a great story and be ready to go. And, honestly, we have some big themes and things we’re talking about, we’re just not there in terms of where exactly we’re gonna go yet. We kind of have the ending point of the franchise, but we don’t know the in-betweens yet...[but] the plan is to make two more movies [9 & 10]. All of us [are] kind of putting our heads together and coming together with something that we think is very special.

Now, I know I'm in the minority of people who aren't fans of these films, but I honestly am glad people are having fun with them. Movies can be about escapism, and this is escapism at its most pure (honestly, I'm kinda jealous it doesn't connect with me). But, for the majority of you who are fans of the franchise, how do you feel about it ending? Would you rather it go on forever - like JAMES BOND or the MCU - or would you rather stop when its ahead, like SEINFELD?

Either way, sound off below!

Meanwhile F8 OF THE FURIOUS is racing in theaters right now.

The current cast might end with 10 while 11 might start with new batch of cast. Could be.

Writer you are the wrong person to write this article. First 3 were the best ones. If you didn't like them you shouldn't be here writing this anyways.

I want Fast Furious people to bring that somewhat realism back to the series I mean that is what made us fall in love with the movie in the first place and what's more I want someone who reminds us of Paul Walker back in the series (I know we cant replace the car legend). But I really missed the Paul/Brian factor in the 8th movie of the

On another note I would love a movie based on the Shaw's.

Fast in Spaaaaaace

Series blew its load long ago. They keep spoofing different genres. When will they finally have to hijack a space shuttle? They have literally done romcoms, heists, amnesia, spy, traitor, cops and robbers and a few other genre spoofs. And I do mean spoofs as these characters started off as stupid street racers and for whatever reason are now the only stupid people who can save the world...

Slow news day I guess. Next week, it'll be another report about Avatar's start date by some other actor.

It's an update from Moritz on the current state of the slate. Things often change. That's the nature of the business. And it's our job to report on it, even if it can be redundant at times. Not every news story is going to be groundbreaking Star Wars announcements. So, cool your jets and stop attacking staff for doing their job.

Who cares, there are still stories more recent and and more original that broke hours ago that your site still hasn't reported on. Maybe get on those before this piece of non-news.

I don't know why these articles are starting to read like diary entries for me, I'm not that interested in reading through the author's personal feelings toward the fast and furious movies.

Agreed. Quit smelling your own farts and just get back to normal movie news.
