    "Fast 6" & 7 Back-To-Back With Statham?

    Universal Pictures is reportedly looking in to the possibility of shooting the next two "Fast and Furious" films back-to-back in Europe throughout 2012 reports Twitchfilm.

    The site also adds that they have begun early talks with Jason Statham about the possibility of him joining one or both of the films which Justin Lin would likely direct. As already hinted, at least some of the action would be set in Berlin.

    Lin has had to pull out of various high-profile projects recently including "Terminator 5" and the "Highlander" reboot due to his commitment to "Fast Six" which is already set for a May 24th 2013 release. A double-film production would likely not affect that date and would also mean the next film would probably hit the following May.

    The film franchise has been a major cash generator for the troubled studio, the recent "Fast Five" generating over $615 million worldwide from a relatively cost-effective $125 million production budget.

    Bring back Dwayn Johnson (The Rock), Paul Walker, and Vin Deisal, and I'm there. Add Jason on top of that... hell yeah I'll be there!

    It is kinda funny that Universal's like "You know what this franchise needs? More stars. We didn't have enough people in the last one."

    Fast Six Will Be a 2-Parter

    "With the success of this last one, and the inclusion of so many characters, and the broadening of scope, when we were sitting down to figure out what would fit into the real estate of number six, we didn?t have enough space..."

    "We have to pay off this story, we have to service all of these character relationships, and when we started mapping all that out it just went beyond 110 pages,? Diesel explained. ?The studio said, ?You can?t fit all that story in one damn movie!?"

    Diesel did not say if the films will be a two-part story or rather two standalone movies with interlinking story arcs.

    Yeah, Fast and the Furious... that's totally the kind of series I think of as having a scope "too big" for one film.

    I don't understand this franchise. It's called Fast and Furious, but really it's more slow and tedious. Justin Lin just doesn't seem able to invest a car chase with any energy, and so focuses on stuffing his films with quirky, fast-talking characters instead. And it's working. Just once I'd like one of these films to thrill me with amazing chases rather than desperately trying to hold my attention with cutesy humor.

    Well, regardless of one's opinion of the series, they do have a point- as you start to make these casts larger and larger by bringing back everyone from the previous movies, eventually you're not going to have enough time to give everyone enough to do and you'll have to either regulate them to near-cameos or cut them from the movie (something that would run counter to the last two movies's main hook of the "bringing them all together" cast size).

    Assuming they are adding Statham, you'll need to give a good amount of screentime to him, The Rock/Mendes/FBI characters, the core Vin/Walker/Brewster/Rodriguez cast, plus Tyrese and Han who'll have to get a decent amount of screentime (the former banking off of Transformers, the latter being enough of a fan/director-favorite that he's pretty much the only reason why Fast 4 through (at least) Fast 7 are being set before Tokyo Drift).

    So, this one will have a tank.





    Presumably this is something that happens when you drive across Europe. Feral tanks are a real traffic problem there, it seems.

    And, contrary to the earlier rumors linked to at the start of this thread, Statham is not in this one.

    Over on his FB page, Vin mentioned that the trailer for Fast Six will be out in 6 days.

    These movies suck. Perhaps if the car scenes had all been done for real instead of over-edited un-realistic nonsense they would be worth watching.

    The whole trailer? That seems unlikely. Unless they do a regular TV spot that has a "see the full trailer online at..." tag.

    you can tell there's been, like, an arc there. maybe a little friction. but now, after some sort of turning point, the rock and vin diesel are now bros

    no need to watch the films now, really

    It's the exact same thing in the first two films.

    This is old, but I still find it hilarious, so I'm posting it:

    I really enjoyed Fast Five way more than the other 4 (though I have a soft spot for Tokyo Drift). I liked that it was more of an action film than a street racing film. I'm looking forward to 6.

    Do you even lift?
