Please, tell me that they aren't serious :|

No, they really aren't. F&F 7's development has been indefinitely stopped.

#3 Posted by Master_Live (15832 posts) -

As it should be.

Its not like the F&F franchise is anything to mourn or something.

This. They've shut down until they figure out what they're gonna do next. Somehow, I seriously doubt that Justin Bieber is gonna be involved in this.

It didn't even take me one look at the website to know this was completely false. There's no way in hell Justin Bieber would replace Paul Walker, nor would he ever be added to the F&F franchise. Universal also put the film on indefinite hold until they figure out how they want to continue the franchise. So yeah.

If you're dumb enough to believe that then go ahead and believe it.

@GazaAli: But it is.. it really is. Theres a reason they made six movies dude.. Some where better then others, but each one made alot of money and has a large fanbase. Im not THAT into the movies, but i really like one and two. And they are the sole reason i got into cars and racing. Can you even imagine how many kids became gear heads since watching the first movie? Inspired a whole generation..

All of that is fine and dandy, but it doesn't say anything about the quality,caliber or artistic/long term worth of the franchise. All of what you said applies to the Twilight franchise for example. Even YuGiOh and Pokemon managed to create an enormous fanbase and these two franchises made millions and millions in revenue and spanned all kinds of products and . I for one find F&F a mere bad-boys flick that should, in a perfect world, appeal to not just teens, but to teens with poor artistic faculties and a not very bright future intellect.

That looked like a fan-made trailer of Fast and the Furious 6, anyway.

I can agree with Motokid with the first film inspiring a generation. Popularity of the car modding scene sky-rocketted and influenced a lot of peoples taste in cars. I still remember going to see the first movie in the cinema ten years ago.

The F&F are popcorn flicks nothing more nothing less. The series has grossed nearly $2 Billion world wide in cinemas. Who knows how many DVD'S etc have been sold. Knocking peoples future intellect because they choose to watch a film is pretty sad. Do you just watch the critically acclaimed films and arthouse rubbish or something??

You know, not every movie should challenge your world view and compel you to change your way of thinking. Some are just meant to be enjoyed for what they are - entertainment.

Get off your damn high horse.

I'm with shottayouth.

The Fast and the Furious movies won't ever win any major oscars but they serve a purpose and are fun for what they are (especially the later ones).

^I agree with the above. The movies are fun to watch.

This would be step #1 in the book "How to kill a respected franchise"

Seriously, how could anyone think this is a good idea?

What I said doesn't really conflict with what you all said. There's nothing wrong with enjoying the F&F franchise as a popcorn flick, or a bad-boys wannabe flick. But to claim that the franchise had any substantial artistic weight or that it was of a high influential caliber in the sense that it had a "profound" effect on a lot of people is kind of absurd, at least to me.

Fast and Furious are crap movies anyway.

That would be a disgrace.
