It seems like conflicts among the Fast and the Furious cast are a recurring nightmare for the franchise. At first, it was between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. While neither of them called each other out publicly, they made vague social media posts indicating who was the target of their discontent. Even when the issue was resolved, most thought it was some sort of elaborate marketing scheme to get people to buy more movie tickets for Fate of the Furious.
But now that it is all behind them, and with an obvious new chapter in the franchise on the way, plus a spinoff, most would think that these conflicts would have come to an end. However, it appears that it is far from over. Now a new one from Tyrese Gibson, who plays Roman Pearce in the series, is threatening to leave the franchise entirely if Dwayne Johnson continues to be involved with it. More on the story below.
The Fast and Furious franchise isn’t what it used to be. While that may not be so bad, it is always looking for new and inventive ways to outdo themselves. Except, they may be running out of ideas here on earth. There has been speculation that Dom and his crew could head to space. How they achieve that is yet to be seen. But they may need to find a new director considering F. Gary Gray may not return to helm a Fast and Furious film for the second time. Check out what he has to say and the possibility of heading out into space, below.
With Fate of the Furious quickly approaching, and all levels of cinematic common sense going out the window, the gang at Screen Junkies turn to the unlikely blockbuster cars and criminals series for their Honest Trailers one more time. This time, we go back to 2006 as Justin Lin was given the keys (haha) to the F&F franchise, and decided to make a movie without all the actors that made it popular, and change the scenery by a few thousand miles.
It’s hard to believe that we’ve only gotten two trailers for The Fate of the Furious so far. Universal has just released the second one today (watch the first here), and if you thought you’ve seen everything in this franchise, well, the new trailer shatters that notion with a torpedo and a few missiles.
Yes, now the family will have to contend with military weaponry. Tanks were one thing, but a submarine is something that they will have to survive if they want to rescue Dom (Vin Diesel). Check out the newest trailer below.
In April of last year Helen Mirren made the unexpected statement that she wanted to star in the eighth Fast and Furious movie, and even do her own driving.
At the time Furious 7 hadn’t even been released yet and it wasn’t clear if there would even be a Fast and Furious 8, but Dame Helen Mirren hath spoken and the universe listens. Not only was Fast 8 (or whatever the hell they’re calling the next one—what sane human being can keep track at this point) confirmed to be on the way, but now Mirren has actually joined the cast.
