A posting by Vin Diesel on his Facebook page over the weekend has set speculation alight that Universal Pictures is moving forward on a seventh “Fast and Furious” film faster than anticipated. Here’s the posting in full:
There was an early screening in LA this week of Fast Six. The crowd reaction was surreal… and their demand for the continuation was powerful…
It’s remarkable to think I first embodied this character in 1999… and the evolution continues.
P.S. Filming begins this summer in LA, where it all started… talk about a studio in sync with the audience.
“Fast and Furious 6” is scheduled to hit screens in May.
Please Note: Despite the date, this is NOT an April Fool’s story.
