When it comes to casting news for the The Fast and The Furious franchise, don’t expect to hear any reports from the trades. Usually, this information comes right from the stars of the film themselves. Like Vin Diesel, who has been there for almost the entire franchise. The actor took to social media today to announce that Oscar-winning actresses Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren will be back to reprise their roles. More on the report here below.
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.
The Fate Of The Furious Director: F. Gary Gray Screenwriter: Chris Morgan Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren Distributor: Universal Pictures Rated PG-13 | 136 Minutes Release Date: April 14, 2017
With each new installment of the Fast and Furious franchise comes a new definition of fun. That is especially true for The Fate of the Furious. For nearly a decade Dom and his family have gone through the perils of street racing, heists, and avenging a fallen family member. And though it has reinvented itself to stay fresh and contemporary, one thing about the franchise remains true: it’s all about family. But the strength of that bond will be put to the test when an act of betrayal forces Dom to cross everyone he knows and go on a high-stakes crime spree that could put the world in the hands of a dangerous cyber terrorist.
Of course, another constant for the film is the fact that it continually jumps the shark whenever the opportunity presents itself. And seeing how car technology has advanced, The Fate of the Furious shifts jumping the shark into high gear. Check out the full review below.
Paramount Pictures has released the third trailer for Michael Bay‘s Transformers: The Last Knight starring Mark Wahlberg, Laura Haddock, and Anthony Hopkins.
Sure these films are mocked and ridiculed, but honestly, they never not live up to the epic spectacle that is a Transformers film. They’re full of explosions, sweeping shots, and have a grand scale to them. So even though this may be Bay’s final film in the franchise, the director will make sure that it will be on his terms. And he’s doing it the only way he knows how. Check out the trailer below.
