Vin Diesel Clarifies 'Fast 8' Rumors, Confirms Final Trilogy

Vin Diesel is opening up to clarify rumors swirling around the eighth film in the Fast & Furious franchise and to reveal how many films are left.

There have been reports that work on the upcoming movie has been stalled because Vin won’t approve of a director.

“The fans of the Fast & Furious SAGA are the best fans in the world… Since I became the Producer in 2008, you have been with me every step of the way… literally giving me feedback that proved invaluable. Thank you,” Vin said in a Facebook post.

“My producing partner Neal 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. To be clear, NO ONE has been offered to helm Fast 8 yet… let alone seen a script,” Vin added. “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. I will announce the directors on my next post…”

It looks like there will be just three more films, ending the franchise on the tenth movie!
