Vin Diesel Talks Fast & Furious 8

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the back of its worldwide premiere at SXSW, Furious 7 is scheduled to shriek into multiplexes this weekend. While tinted by the tragedy of franchise star Paul Walker, it’s reportedly the most outlandish, fantastical and bonkers sequel in the entire series thus far. And if the loss of Walker might have led you to believe the never-ending octane-fueled franchise was to end… then think again, because Vin Diesel is hell bent on driving another flick straight into production.

To be honest, it’s likely that Fast & Furious 8 has already been earmarked for the greenlight. Since Fast Five rejuvenated the lagging car-centric series, each successive instalment has bettered the box office return, sending the Fast & Furious brand into a stratosphere of its own. Nevertheless, during the press rounds for Furious 7, Diesel confirmed the next outing in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel.

'Furious 7' Starts New Trilogy, 'Fast 8' Set in New York

12 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal's Furious 7, which hits theaters this Friday, brings the franchise full circle, with Dom (Vin Diesel) and his crew returning home to Los Angeles, after the franchise has gone to Miami, Tokyo, Panama, Rio de Janeiro and London. We reported earlier today that Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren has expressed her desire to play a villain alongside Vin Diesel in Fast & Furious 8, which hasn't been officially announced yet. While we wait for any official word from the studio on Fast & Furious 8, Fast & Furious franchise star Vin Diesel offered some new insight into the sequel on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night. The actor revealed that the sequel already has a story in place that involves Kurt Russell's character from Furious 7, which will be set in New York City. Here's what Vin Diesel had to say below.

"I'll tell you something about Kurt Russell. You know I always think of these films, »

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker: How the “Fast and Furious” franchise became a hit

13 hours ago | | See recent news »

Later on this week, the Fast and Furious franchise brings their seventh installment to the big screen with Furious 7. The sixth sequel in what is now a juggernaut of a series, we find things coming to a sort of fork in the road. Obviously, the death of Paul Walker has removed the long term dynamic of Vin Diesel and Walker leading the team, but the show goes on, as it were. The question that I had, as someone who only saw the first film and was more than a little surprised to see how the popularity of the series balloon, was just how this franchise became what it is today? For the few of you out there who aren’t familiar with the franchise, here’s a quick refresher now. The first film was The Fast and the Furious, directed by Rob Cohen and starring the group of Vin Diesel, »

"Star Trek 3" Script Talk, TV Spin-Off Rumors

29 March 2015 5:52 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Further comments have emerged from British actor/writer Simon Pegg in regards to the upcoming third film in the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise. Pegg and Doug Jung are working on the screenplay for the film which Justin Lin ("Fast Five") is slated to direct.

Speaking with Den of Geek this past week about the trailer release of "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation," Pegg admits the responsibility of this job is terrifying. Yet he says he hasn't bothered with keeping any of the previous version of the script that Roberto Orci was involved in:

"No. It's completely new. I haven't read Bob (Orci)'s script and they didn't want us to. So we went back to the drawing board. We had creative meetings with Justin and there were things he wanted in there.

I haven't written like this before. I've never been a custodian of something, it's usually mine what I'm writing. »

Ranking the Fast & Furious movies from worst to best

29 March 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

14 years after it first hit the big screen in 2001, the Vin Diesel and Paul Walker-led Fast & Furious franchise has gone from strength-to-strength, earning more than $2.3 billion at the worldwide box office.

Originally based around illegal street racing, the Fast movies have evolved to become big, bombastic entertainment with larger-than-life characters and gravity-defying stunts. But underneath it all these are also films about family, with Diesel, Walker, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez's characters the heartbeat of the series.

With Fast & Furious 7 due out on April 3, Digital Spy's Fast experts Tom Eames, Morgan Jeffery and Simon Reynolds went back through them all to come up with a definitive ranking from worst to best.

7. 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

It's quite amazing that the Fast & Furious franchise survived at all after its misjudged sequel. Only Paul Walker remained for its second outing, which focused more on the street racing than the characters »

‘Star Trek 3′ Reflects ‘Spirit of the TV Show,’ Simon Pegg Says

28 March 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rejoice, Trekkies! The latest sequel to the rebooted “Star Trek” franchise will capture the spirit of the original TV show.

Co-writer and star Simon Pegg told Comic Book Resources that “Star Trek 3,” whose script was recently completely overhauled, will have more familiar notes than the previous two films.

“I think we just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show,” Pegg told the site.

Pegg, who will return to play engineering chief Scotty, also said that the new film will be infused with the same optimism and sense of adventure that characterized the original stories.

“And it’s a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that’s where we want to take it, you know, where no man has gone before — where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation,” he said. “But yeah, that’s the mood at the moment. »

Vin Diesel Calls Paul Walker His ''Guide Into Fatherhood,'' Says Late Actor's Presence Was There for His Daughter's Birth

27 March 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Vin Diesel is opening up about his late best friend Paul Walker. In an interview with the Today show, the Furious 7 star credits Walker for preparing him to be a dad to his three children. "He went into fatherhood a lot earlier than I did," the 47-year-old actor told Natalie Morales. "He took on that role of kind of being the guide into fatherhood for me. It's kind of beautiful." Diesel and Walker were on set filming Fast Five when Diesel's second child Vincent was born in 2010. "The one thing Paul always wanted me to do was be present at my child's birth," he said. "He was so adamant about it." "When I Did Fast & Furious 5 and we were on the »

"Star Trek 3" To Have TV Show's Spirit

27 March 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the more unexpected but delightful surprises to come out of the early kerfuffle regarding production on the third "Star Trek" movie was that actor/writer Simon Pegg was taking on co-writing duties for the script.

Pegg and Doug Jung are working on the screenplay for the film which Justin Lin ("Fast Five") is slated to direct. Speaking to Spinoff Online about the film's tone, he says:

"[We] just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show. And it's a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that's where we want to take it, you know.

Where no man has gone before - where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation."

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana and Anton Yelchin are all on board to return for the film which will go into production shortly. »

Vin Diesel Predicts Best Picture Win for 'Furious 7' as Academy's Board of Governors Meets

24 March 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This evening the Academy's Board of Governors will meet to discuss the future of the Oscars with the possibility of going back to five Best Picture nominees on the table and something many believe will in fact be ratified. Well, if that's the case then we better start trying to figure out what the other four nominees for Best Picture will be as Vin Diesel assures us one of the spots is already locked up by his latest movie, Furious 7. "Universal is going to have the biggest movie in history with this movie," Diesel told Variety. "It will probably win best picture at the Oscars, unless the Oscars don't want to be relevant ever (Burn!)... There is nothing that will ever come close to the power of this thing." I have a hard time believing Diesel is serious with this and the last two paragraphs in that Variety piece are almost cringe inducing, »

Fast & Furious 7 review: Series bids emotional farewell to Paul Walker

24 March 2015 4:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James Wan; Screenwriter: Chris Morgan; Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Lucas Black; Running time: 137 mins; Certificate: 15

From small beginnings as a plucky street racing drama, the Fast & Furious series has transformed itself into a juggernaut tentpole franchise that delivers jaw-dropping vehicular carnage and testosterone-soaked fist fights. Cast members aside, the Fast movies of recent years bear little resemblance to the early outings.

It wasn't until the arrival of Dwayne Johnson in 2011's Fast Five that the films really found their feet - now they're competing for serious box office bucks with the likes of Marvel and Transformers. In short, the Fast franchise now produces the kind of action movies you wished The Expendables would.

Picking up straight where Fast & Furious 6 left off, the storyline this time around is driven by Deckard Shaw's (Jason Statham »

Fast & Furious 7 review

24 March 2015 2:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

High-octane sequel Fast & Furious 7 satisfies as an action film and a moving send-off for the late Paul Walker, Ryan writes...

Fifteen years ago, a magazine article about illegal street racing left a producer with dollar signs in his eyes, and the result was the trashily entertaining The Fast & The Furious - a high-speed reworking of Point Break with a title taken from an old Roger Corman movie (director Rob Cohen got the title from Corman in exchange for a few reels of stock footage).

That Universal now has such a huge franchise on its hands is no small thanks to director Justin Lin, who managed to take the series from its increasingly niche street racing roots and into new, colossally over-the-top action territory with Fast Five. But Fast & Furious 7 sees Lin replaced by a new director, James Wan - a filmmaker more closely associated with his Saw films than high-octane stunts. »

Six new action-packed clips from Furious 7 have been released

21 March 2015 3:52 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Like many of you, I wasn’t fully won over by The Fast And The Furious franchise until Fast Five; a film which was completely ridiculous but also an incredible amount of fun. Fast & Furious 6 didn’t quite reach the heights of Fast Five for me, but there was enough off the walls action to keep my enthusiasm for the series going. Everything we’ve seen from Furious 7 thus far leads me to believe that we’ll be getting another great installment of »

Watch The Rock And Jason Statham Do Battle In This Badass Furious 7 Clip

19 March 2015 8:59 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's one thing to hear about how awesome and insane James Wan's Furious 7 is, but it's a completely different thing to see that badassery at work. While the trailers have been pretty high octane, this clip with The Rock and Jason Statham trying to end each other is pretty... well, watch the clip yourself and you can finish that sentence. Machinima was the lucky group of bastards that scored the clip's YouTube premiere, and after watching it a good five or six times, it's easy to see just how Furious 7 plans to top the spectacular fight that raged between Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in Fast Five. While Statham doesn't have a size equivalent to that of Johnson's muscle bound frame, he does still have the speed and reflexes he honed during his time in the Transporter saga. It should be noted that while this »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Furious 7′

16 March 2015 5:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A new director at the helm and the sudden death of leading man Paul Walker might have spelled doom for the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, but rather like one of its own seemingly indestructible muscle cars, “Furious 7” has emerged miraculously unscathed. In taking over for longtime director Justin Lin (parts 3-6), horror auteur James Wan (“The Conjuring”) ably steps up to the big-action plate, orchestrating two-plus-hours of increasingly outlandish vehicular (and aerobatic) mayhem that revs pulses and engines in roughly equal measure. Completed under what were surely challenging circumstances, but (mostly) seamless to behold, “Furious 7” provides both a satisfying chapter in the movies’ preeminent gearhead soap opera and a tactful, touching memorial to Walker, whose final screen appearance will help ensure that this already $2.3 billion series is seven times lucky at the worldwide box office.

Furious 7 Review [SXSW 2015]

16 March 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point, the entire Fast & Furious franchise has become nothing but an exercise in one-upping itself. Starting with Fast Five‘s gravity-defying cliff jump, Justin Lin took to Fast & Furious 6 with every intention to blow his previous film’s scope away in a haze of Nos residue – and he did. Lin’s antics cemented a fresh tone of absurdity for future filmmakers to follow, and first up is James Wan with his entry into the car-chasing, muscle-bulging, explosion-heavy franchise.

So how does Furious 7 stack up against Lin’s turbo-fueled ass-kickers? Let’s just say Wan makes a damn good case as to why he left the horror genre behind for a bit, silencing any doubters who thought his transition to be foolish. The boys and girls are back, and you’ll be glad that you are, too.
