With the success of the most recent Fast & Furious film, it was only a matter of time before they announced yet another sequel, right?
Well, this didn't take long!
There's now going to be a 5th movie in the franchise. Universal has confirmed that a new flick is in the works.
Hottie Paul Walker confirmed the news as well during an interview this weekend.
"This was supposed to be it. There wasn't supposed to be the open-ended closing like there was. When I first read the screenplay, I was like, 'Man, look what they're doing.' But without question, with the way things opened up, Vin and I will be coming back, we're making a fifth one, and we're going to Brazil, that's it."
Oh, and Paul also gives a long-winded explanation as to why he decided to do the fourth movie but opted out of the third.
According to Paul:
"Vin didn't do the second one, and fans would always ask me, 'Why didn't Vin do the second one?' I didn't really have an answer for them. And then I didn't do the third one. And guys would come up to me on the street and be like, 'Hey, why weren't you in the third one?' And when they ask the question, it's kinda like they got that look…saying, 'Don't tell us you're too good for us now.' When they started talking about making the fourth one, I was like, man, I don't really have a choice now, because if I don't do it I know I'm gonna be pissing people off, because this is the opportunity to come back and make the first true sequel."
Simple translation, "I needed the money. Badly."
