Universal is preemptively prepping the sixth entry in the [The] Fast and/or [the] Furious saga — having already hired on the series’ go-to writer to tackle the screenplay — and based on how well Fast Five is performing in the territories it’s already been released, their hubris will likely pay off. But that doesn’t mean they intend to just keep milking the franchise until it runs its course. Oh, they’ll keep milking it alright, but their strategy is to mix up the genre appeal of the films, hopefully generating interest among those who have previously written them off as being nothing more than dumb action films for car nuts.

Fast and the Furious Five To Be Set in Brazil?

diesel_walker

According to widespread reports, Paul Walker let slip some details of an upcoming fifth film in the Fast and the Furious franchise when appearing on the Valentine in the Morning radio show. This isn’t really a surprise – the fourth installment had one heck of an opening, and the series overall is running at an incredibly healthy total.

What’s more, he gave up two specifics: that Vin Diesel will also be coming back for more; and that this time, they’ll be relocating to Brazil. The exact quote below the fold, plus the studio’s follow up statement.

Michelle Rodriguez has three films set for release before the end of 2009, and in one simple sentence she issued a major spoiler for each of them. Good going, Michelle. The films in question are Fast and Furious, Tropico de Sangre and James Cameron’s actually still pretty darn secret Avatar.

She was speaking to Latina, but before I dare excerpt the interview I’m going to lay down the break as a safety precaution. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

New Posters: Land of the Lost & Fast and Furious

Universal has premiered a movie poster for their big screen take of Land of the Lost and the sequel Fast and Furious. Click on the images above to see the large versions on Cinematical and MTV. The Land of the Lost poster looks silly and CG’d, which goes right alongside my expectations of the film. The Fast and Furious poster looks like something a 5th grader created in photoshop, which makes sense because I’m expecting the film to have a 5th-grade-level of story construction.

Universal Pictures has decided to shuffle next year’s movie slate. The Wolfman is being pushed back from April 3rd to November 6 2009, and Justin Lin’s Fast and Furious will be moving from it’s June 12th release to The Wolfman’s former April date. They have also moved Ridley Scott‘s Nottingham back to a 2010 TBA slot, which was expected since the film isn’t set to go into production until February 2009 at earliest.

Justin Lin’s Fast and Furious completed filming in June and will be ready much earlier than the effects laden Horror adaptation. The move out of June also gives Universal more time to concentrate on their big screen adaptation of The Land of the Lost, which opens on June 5th. Nothing scandalous about the changes unfortunately.

Fast and Furious Movie Trailer


The teaser trailer for Fast and Furious was attached to Death Race, and is now available online. We also have some new production photos above and after the jump. Original cast members Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster return, allowing Universal to use the tagline “New Model, Original Parts”. I think the truck hijacking is a clever but totally unbelievable callback to the original film. The montage that follows however, looks like more of the same. As always, tell me what you think in the comments below.
