Everyone knew further entries in the “Fast and Furious” franchise were inevitable, well now it’s in writing.
“Fast Five” screenwriter Chris Morgan has signed a two-year first-look deal with Universal Pictures. The first project of that deal? You guessed it, “Fast Six” says The Hollywood Reporter.
No story details have been worked out yet, and it isn’t known which characters from the previous movies in the franchise will return. A post-credits scene in the fifth film hints the sixth will be at least partly set in Berlin, while director Justin Lin tells SMH that Australia is potentially another option.
Morgan has penned every entry in the series since the third film “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” along with action features like “Wanted” and the upcoming “47 Ronin”.
Meanwhile the studio has posted up an interactive trailer for the upcoming “Fast Five” which opens next week in the States and is already out in select international territories under the alternate title “Fast and Furious 5: Rio Heist”.
