Vin Diesel will reprise his role in the long running Fast and the Furious franchise with the fifth installment entitled, Fast Five. After the unprecedented success of last year’s Fast & Furious we shouldn’t be surprised that another sequel is in the works. Diesel has been updating fans via his official Facebook page about the latest film’s progress and he recently dropped a bomb about its location.
The actor wrote about a meeting with Furious director Justin Lin regarding the new movie and what he could or couldn’t reveal to fans. Diesel along with Lin, Paul Walker, producer Neal Moritz, and screenwriter Chris Morgan are all set to return for Fast Five and it sounds like they’ll be headed to South America. In the actor’s latest Facebook post he wrote the following entry,
Had a meeting with Justin Lin today regarding the Fast saga… some daring but fascinating thoughts in terms of action set pieces… and relationships, old and new.
The team is on their way to Brazil this evening, to scout, and to see what selection of cars there are.
P.s. Will be talking to DT next week, maybe he can let me show some concept art of Riddick… Peace.
Don’t you love how he refers to this as a “Saga?” This isn’t Star Wars. That word used to carry weight but now with this and the Twilight series, it’s lost all credibility. Diesel also managed to sneak in a little tidbit about the third Riddick film, another project that will be rehashed even though it doesn’t need to be. Get ready guys, it sounds like we’re going to Brazil.
Where do you think the series could go if it was set in Brazil? What other locations should they try out?
