It’s rare that a film franchise makes it to its sixth or seventh entry, and even rarer that the latter films end up being more successful than what came before. But that’s exactly what has happened with the Fast & Furious franchise, which hit a high mark with the excellent Fast Five at $626 million worldwide and went even higher with Fast & Furious 6’s worldwide gross of $788 million. The next film, Furious 7, is due out in April with high expectations, but the series suffered a major loss late last year when star Paul Walker sadly passed away. Recently, word surfaced that director Justin Lin—who helmed entries 3 through 6—might be returning to the franchise for a multi-film wrap up that will bring the series to a close.
Now Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley has weighed in on the end of the franchise, saying she envisions it continuing on for at least three more films. More after the jump.
