Vin Diesel Confirms Final ‘Fast & Furious’ Trilogy

Vin Diesel is promising fans of the “Fast & Furious” franchise three last rides.

The actor wrote Sunday on Facebook that he plans to produce a final trilogy of films.

“Universal has been so good to me and so trusting of the vision … they have been like family … I promised the studio I would deliver one last trilogy to end the saga,” he wrote.

The post comes amid reports that the upcoming “Furious 8,” slated for April 14, 2017, is being derailed as it still has not found a director.

“My producing partner Neal [Moritz] would love for me to just sign off on a director, but this is too special a franchise, so these matters have to be very carefully handled,” Diesel wrote. “To be clear, NO ONE has been offered to helm Fast 8 yet … let alone seen a script.”

Diesel said he will announce the “directors” for the final movies in his next Facebook post.

The last film in the franchise, “Furious 7,” was a box office phenomenon. It ranks as the fifth highest-grossing film of all time, having hauled $1.5 billion worldwide.
