    Three More “Fast and the Furious” Movies Planned, Return of Director Justin Lin Possible

    For fans of the Fast and the Furious series, the death of beloved leading man Paul Walker was a sign that Furious 7 was going to be the last movie in the series. Now, though, it looks as if there may be more episodes in store.

    According to Entertainment Weekly, Universal Studios chairman Donna Langley said, “We think there’s at least three more . . . I think it’s still a growing franchise.” While we won’t begrudge fans more F&F action, could this be too much of a good thing? And with Walker gone, there’s sure to be trepidation among fans. Langley claims Universal understands that risk and is “very mindful of fatigue.”

    The confirmation of more movies in the series also lends credibility to rumors that four-time F&Fdirector Justin Lin could return to direct more of the films. That would be a key get in fans’ eyes, and Lin’s return may be just what the long-running series needs to continue performing big at the box office.

    Yeah Im pretty sure Paul kept doing this series because he loved it and he would want it to keep going as far as possible.

    :rolleyes:

    "Tokyo Drift" is a road-effect condition which occurs when some silly, wise-ass 20-something in a Ricer (typically, a 4-cylinder turbo) tries to keep pace with your Hellcat on launch from the green light.

    While said Ricer dude spins sideways, your Nittos stick hard, and you commence to laugh as he just gets smaller and smaller in your rear view. ;) :D

    :cool:

    I like the actual drifting in real life but not how ridiculously stupid they make it in the movies. The fake CGI crap ruins it completely, along with big red buttons that magically propel the car forward into warp speed while jumping over canyons. So fake and the public eats it up and hands over all their cash to watch it. Easy money from the easily amused.
