If you’ve murdered someone or have a treasure hidden somewhere, the last person you probably want to tell is Vin Diesel. The actor just can’t seem to keep many secrets to himself, especially when it comes to future projects that he may be doing at Marvel Studios.
For the past year, Diesel has been doing a little more than teasing that in addition to his voice role as Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, he might have something to do with the forthcoming film The Inhumans. The project was recently rumored to be in danger of getting axed, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, especially if we continue to believe Diesel’s pretty obvious hints. Read More »

Last week we heard Furious 8 was having a bit of trouble kicking into gear. One of the biggest sticking points was the question of who would steer the film, since scheduling conflicts put previous franchise directors Justin Lin and James Wan out of the running.

Meanwhile, studio Universal is reportedly eyeing Ericson Core (of the Point Break remake) and Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me). Let’s run down the possibilities for the Furious 8 director after the jump. Read More »
Just last week, a report detailing some trouble behind the scenes of Furious 8 revealed that Universal Pictures was having trouble locking down a director, and there was even some chatter about producer and franchise star Vin Diesel being difficult to work with on set in the recent sequels, being heavily involved in the writing process, almost to a frustrating level.
However, Diesel himself has taken to Facebook, seemingly in an attempt to clear up some of the gossip about the production of the next sequel in the franchise, to explain what the hold up is in development. In addition, he’s confirmed that Universal is planning Furious 9 and Furious 10 for one final Fast and Furious trilogy that will begin with Furious 8. Read More »

It’s crazy to believe that we’re seven movies into what started as a throwaway action franchise back in 2001. We’ve gone from The Fast and the Furious to just Furious 7 over the span of 14 years, and a new Honest Trailer wastes no time making fun of the ever-changing title format that seems to be happening for no good reason.
Furious 7 is a big dumb action movie, but it’s also a hell of a lot of fun, and it brings with it a decent amount of heart this time since it’s the final ride for co-star Paul Walker. It does, however, seem to fit into the same mold as the others in that every single movie is the last mission for these guys, and yet they keep coming back for more.
