The sky's the limit with two more films reportedly in the works.
Over the course of two decades, the Fast and Furious franchise has consistently pushed boundaries, taking its characters from humble street racers to the world's unsung heroes. However, a recent interview with two of the franchise's main casts, Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez, indicates that the movie could elevate further by culminating in a three-part finale.
During the Fast X Premiere in Rome last May 12, Diesel hinted about a possible future for the movie franchise, Variety reports.
"Going into making this movie, the studio asked if this could be a two-parter," Diesel told red carpet host Naz Perez. "And after the studio saw this one, they said, 'Could you make Fast X, the finale, a trilogy?'"
The teasing continued when Rodriguez joined and said, "It's three acts in any story." Diesel cut the interview and said, "You're gonna get me in trouble here."
We're not sure whether the statements were planned all along to make a buzz. But considering how Universal Studios manages to develop new installments, the Fast X could be followed by two more.
A trilogy might question the integrity of the franchise, though. Some believed that Furious 7 would've been the perfect ending, especially with the famous "Last Ride" scene between the late Paul Walker and Diesel in their Toyota Supra and Dodge Charger, respectively. But who knows? Maybe concluding Fast and Furious with a trilogy could breathe new life into the long-running saga.
We've seen a ton of trailers for the upcoming Fast X film, but the plot will see the introduction of Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa). He seeks revenge against Dom after the family took down Dante's father and Brazilian drug kingpin, Hernan Reyes, in Fast Five. New faces will also join the Fast and Furious universe including Tess (Brie Larson), Aimes (Alan Ritchson), and a street car racer played by Daniela Melchior.
To find out whether the studio is indeed setting up for a trilogy, don't miss the high-octane action in Fast X coming in US cinemas on May 19, 2023.
