Fast Five's massive box office take ($626 million worldwide) proved that audiences weren't done with the franchise, and neither was the studio. After the success of Fast Five, Universal Pictures quickly hired screenwriter Chris Morgan, who wrote Fast Six, as well as 2009's Fast and Furious and 2006's The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, to write a sixth installment. Morgan will have to write a seventh as well.
Actor Vin Diesel helped launch the franchise but took a break for 2003's 2 Fast 2 Furious, then returned for a cameo in Tokyo Drift before settling back into the franchise with Fast and Furious. Now officially a producer of the series, Diesel told THR that when he, Morgan and director Justin Lin sat down to discuss Fast Six (or Fast and Furious 6 or what ever it may be called), there was too much (story?) to put into just one movie. universal happy with two more movies >>
