“Fast & Furious 6” might still be almost two months away from being released, but plans are already in the works for a follow-up. Star Vin Diesel took to his Facebook page to tease when the new movie will begin shooting.
“There was an early screening in LA this week of Fast 6. The crowd reaction was surreal… and their demand for the continuation was powerful… It’s remarkable to think I first embodied this character in 1999… and the evolution continues,” he wrote, via /Film. “P.s. Filming begins this summer in LA, where it all started… talk about a studio in sync with the audience…”
For those of you who like to be spoiled, that recent Ain’t It Cool News rumor about “Fast & Furious 6’s” ending revealing “Fast & Furious 7’s” villain was recently confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. Let’s just say that if you see Jason Statham pop up on the set of the upcoming “Fast and Furious” movie this summer, don’t be too surprised.
“Fast & Furious 6″ is due in theaters on May 24, and trumpets the return of Michelle Rodriguez to the “Fast and Furious” franchise. Her character was teased at the end of “Fast Five,” meaning it’s not much of a shocker that “Fast & Furious 6″ will lead directly into “Fast and Furious 7.”
