Fast & Furious 6 hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but we’re guessing the projected numbers are high enough that more development has been made on the next Fast & Furious chapter. Its star, Vin Diesel, who has been in five of the six completed Fast & Furious films is locked for Fast & Furious 7 with co-star Paul Walker.
For the current film the crew spent their time in London and Spain, that makes Diesel one heck of a jet-setter even though his character Dominic Toretto is all about being on the road. During promotion for the current installment Diesel let people in on the location for the next film.
Diesel said the “family” will be going head to head with an enemy in Tokyo and the Middle East in the seventh installment. “We have a stint in Tokyo and there is the Middle East next, that could be interesting,” said Diesel.
As some fans of the franchise might remember, the third Fast & Furious film was set in Tokyo and the events that transpire in the third film actually takes place after the last three films. If this all goes according to plan then the Fast & Furious 7 film will be beginning presumably where Tokyo Drift leaves off. Sure, it’s a little complicated for a franchise that’s rooted in girls, cars and muscular men, but it may just work.
As it is the Fast & Furious 7 film’s release date is already slated for July 11, 2014. Looks like we’ll be seeing Paul Walker and Vin Diesel in a lot of exotic locations for years to come. Are you excited for the upcoming sequels of the Fast & Furious franchise? Let us know what you think!
