In a recent interview with MTV News, Dwayne Johnson revealed that the plan to shoot the next two films in the “Fast and Furious” franchise back-to-back may not be happening after all.
“I don’t think we’re going to shoot them back-to-back. We were going to try that because it would 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 tells the site.
The actor joined the cast of the series in last year’s “Fast Five” which grossed over $625 million worldwide and scored the best reviews of the franchise.
That film was set in Rio de Janeiro, though a post-credits scene was set in Berlin. In terms of locations in “Fast Six”, Johnson says “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 also confirms shooting kicks off in May this year which is more than enough time for Universal to stick to its currently targeted May 24th 2013 release date.
