NBC Universal gives the green light on Fast and the Furious 5, or as it will be called, ’Fast Five’
Even if you’re not a fan of its mundanely shallow story line, if you call yourself a car enthusiast, then you should be excited about the announcement that the Fast and the Furious franchise is getting a fifth – and possibly, sixth – installment.
The fifth Fast and the Furious – the title has been penciled in to be simply called as ‘Fast 5’ - movie will once again be co-billed by Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. Likewise director Justin Lin, the man behind the camera for ‘The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift’ and ‘Fast and Furious’ (a.k.a ‘The Fast and the Furious 4’) will also return to direct the fifth installment of a franchise that has become a surprising cash cow for NBC Universal.
There’s no word yet on whether Vin Diesel and Paul Walker will be joined by their old cast-mates, but wouldn’t it be a treat to see Tyrese and Bow Wow get into a drag race for their pink slips?
Now that’s something we’ll pay to see.
