The Fast & The Furious star Paul Walker has confirmed the action franchise is to be extended for a fifth time - with plans for a new movie set in Europe.
The actor starred in the original film, The Fast & The Furious, in 2001 alongside Michelle Rodriguez and Vin Diesel. Walker returned for the sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, in 2003 with a different cast but sat out the third installment, 2006's The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
Walker reunited with Diesel and Rodriguez to reprise their original roles for this year's sequel, simply titled Fast & Furious - and the star admits movie bosses are already working on another follow up, taking the series to five movies.
He tells MoviesOnline, "It's beyond rumors at this point. I've spoken with executives at Universal and they're pretty serious about it. They're developing it. They know where they want it to take place. They want to do it in Europe."

I love the fast and the furious. In fact, the original fast and the furious movie was the last movie I have ever seen in a theater back in 2001. However, I do admit it is time to close the series. I did like the last one, and I do feel it has brought closure to the original cast. Time to RIP it IMO

I enjoyed them overall as fun auto related entertainment. However, I am not sure where else they can really go with this. They stretched a bit with Tokyo Drift, and IMO did better with the latest one (#4).

I think they will continue to produce these as long as they real in good box office money, but I am having trouble imagining them coming up with a somewhat original storyline.

Bullitt didn't. But nobody paid attention to the storyline.

Wasn't there already a European version called "The French Connection"? At least that one had a plot and great acting (original)

i'll considerate it a good rental choice.... sit back, turn on the big screen, crank the surround, and "escape" for a couple hours. None of them had award-winning acting, or even plot lines. But it would be on my netflix list, along with many other action/chase/etc movies...
who cares if all the "10 second" cars shown seem to take minutes to navigate a short distance.... it's just for fun.

This is true. Bullitt sans car chase was a pretty bad movie.

I'd like to see it; I liked the movies, excluding the second POS. Car entertainment all in good fun. If Justin Lin directs again we should expect to see some good visual spectacles; he especially pushed very hard to do all practical stunts (even the rolling tanker truck was practical) over CGI which frankly is something you hardly see in any movies these days.
