The Fast & Furious Franchise Will Now Feature 10 Movies & End in 2021 According To Vin Diesel & His Haunting Singing Voice
This is not a surprising move, as the last three Fast and Furious movies have each grossed over $200 million, with Fast 7 making the most money out of any of the movies. But 10 movies is still a shit load of movies. Fast & Furious is turning into the ‘Trapped in the Closet’ of the movie world. It is kind of cool that it will end 20 years after the first movie premiered in 2001, and there is apparently nothing Hollywood loves more than a sequel. As long as The Rock is involved in all three, I’m in.
If there’s a franchise that deserves it’s own day and has really stood the test of time, it’s the Back To The Future franchise. I’m admittedly biased because the original is one of my favorite movies ever, but Back To The Future is as great now as it was back then, and it’s even making it’s way into post season baseball talk because of its bold (and almost shockingly accurate) Cubs prediction. I wasn’t alive when the first one came out so I didn’t get to experience it until years later, but you don’t really appreciate the creativity and ambition of movies like this until you’re older. A few years ago a few friends and I went to see the trilogies back to back to back on the big screen and it was so good and so cool to see it the way it was meant to be seen. Enjoy Back to the Future day, and if you’re not capping it off by watching at least one of the movies tonight, you’re doing it wrong.
Wicked – We’re happy to report that if you were completely blown away by the action and thrills in John Wick, the directors tell us they’re in the works on another one. [Update: And now Lionsgate confirms that franchise plans are definitely underway.]
During our chat with Chad Stahelski and David Leitch for “Director’s Notebook,” the stuntmen turned directors revealed that they definitely want to give the fans what they want and are currently working on a sequel to their hit debut, which not only proved that Keanu Reeves is still a viable action star but introduced us to some spectacular new action sequences like “gun fu” and “car fu.”
“We’re in development right now,” Stahelski told us.
They didn’t go into any specifics on story or if Reeves would return, though Stahelski did hint, “If we could work with Keanu Reeves for 10 movies you’d have a really cool career.” The two admitted that pressure of a sequel isn’t coming up with more action, but keeping the character relatable.
As someone who watched the glorious insanity that was John Wick, I can’t wait for the sequels, and I hope they make 100 more. The plot of the movie is basically the two gifs I’ve included above: John Wick loves his puppy, John Wick literally murders everyone. It’s amazing. I didn’t think Keanu Reeves could get more badass, but clearly he’s got a lot left in the tank, and watching him hunt down Reek from Game of Thrones was especially satisfying. John Wick all day every day every way.
