2021 to mark the end of ‘The Fast and The Furious’ saga

Since 2001, The Fast and the Furious has always managed to win the hearts of its audiences with its action packed, car bashing, full of twist and turns movies. And last year too, it was no exception. Furious 7 went on to churn about $1.5 million, earning the sixth spot in the highest grossing film of all time list and becoming the highest grossing film in the franchise. The seventh edition of this popular street racing franchise was like a tribute to Paul Walker as fans were heartbroken over the sudden death of Walker in a car crash. Paul Walker was brought to life using the CGI and visual effects technique along with his brother’s help, enabling the filming to be completed without having to abruptly take down his character. Last year, franchise star, Vin Diesel had announced that he would deliver one last trilogy to end the saga, which has spanned two decades. And now, via his instagram account, he revealed the release dates for all future installments in the Fast and the Furious series. “We’ve written out story lines for various characters,” Diesel said. “We’ve been playing with it for a long time. It’s a very rich property and we’re committed to treating it with a lot of class.” Fast 8 was already known to be opening on 14 April, 2017 and the sequels will follow in approximately two year intervals, with Fast & Furious 9 releasing on 19 April, 2019, and Fast & Furious 10 arriving on 2 April, 2021. As Diesel said in his earlier statement, “Paul Walker used to say that eight was guaranteed. And in some ways, when your brother guarantees something, you sometimes feel like you have to make sure it comes to pass. Seven was for Paul, eight is from Paul,” so we can safely bet that fans won’t be disappointed in the upcoming sequels as we do expect to witness some amazing, mind boggling visuals as seen in the previous movies. Though The Fast and The Furious will end in 2021, Diesel also confirmed spin-off films are currently in the works. Fast 8 is set to premier on 14 April, 2017, with Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray at the helm.
