Dwayne Johnson: There Are More Miles Left In The “Fast” Franchise
Will there be a Fast 8? It’s the million dollar question fans want to know. Dwayne Johnson tells HipHollywood during the films’ junket that he believes there are still a few miles left in the franchise.
“I think there may be another one,” said Johnson. “I think there are a few more miles left on this franchise. They are talking about it now and we can have early discussions about it now which I’m cool with. But I think let’s let Furious 7 come out and see how the fans respond to it.”
And Vin Diesel believes fans will really enjoy the films ending, which pays homage to the late Paul Walker who died in 2013 in a fatal car crash. “We really pulled out all the stops to conclude this movie in a way that honors a legacy, so I would hold off talking about the future until fans really get a chance to see this movie and the ending specifically.”
Directed by James Wan, Furious 7 finds the gang on the hunt for a government hacker played by newcomer Nathalie Emmanuel from Game of Thrones. Also new to the franchise is Kurt Russell, Djimon Hounsou and action star Jason Statham, who just may be their fiercest adversary.
“Every single time we shoot another movie I’m like how the hell are we going to top what we just did,” said Ludacris who returns as Tej. “And somehow we do it, and the fans keep supporting, so it will continue to get bigger and better.”
Furious 7 hits theaters April 3. Check out the video above for the rest of our sit-down with the cast.
