Fast & Furious 5 Renamed Fast Five

Yea, that’s a much cooler title, lol. Either way, Universal has made it official that there will be another sequel for the Fast and Furious franchise. The trades report “Chris Morgan is writing “Fast Five,” marking the third time he and Lin have teamed for a “Fast and Furious” film. The story finds protags Dom (Diesel) and Brian (Walker) as fugitives being pursued by legendary lawmen.” By now, the cult-following only care about fast car speed chases and embellished action scenes, so story pretty much means diddley here. Here’s what the rest of the trades state:

Universal Pictures is hitting the accelerator on a fifth installment of “Fast and Furious,” titled “Fast Five.”
Studio has closed deals with Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, director Justin Lin and producer Neal Moritz to return to the franchise, which has become one of the studio’s most lucrative.

Diesel and Walker sat out the third chapter in the series but returned for last year’s fourth installment, which was the highest-grossing “Fast and Furious” film and Universal’s top grosser of 2009. Its box-office haul was more than $350 million worldwide.

Lensing will begin later this year for a 2011 release.

Original Films’ Moritz has produced every film in the series, beginning in 2001 with the “The Fast and the Furious.”

Universal’s Jeff Kirschenbaum and Franklin Leonard will oversee the project for the studio.
