That’s not counting the eighth part, the output of which is scheduled for 2017, and its two sequels, which together make a complete trilogy.
«We wrote the storylines for different characters in the series. We have long played with them, because it is very rich world and we wanted to do everything at the highest level “, – said Vin Diesel.
He did not name the heroes of” Fast and the Furious, “which will have its own films, but still half a year back in March 2015, Dwayne Johnson (who played in the fifth, sixth and seventh series Special Agent Luke Hobbs) let slip that his character could become a hero of their own action movie.

Warner Bros, for example, is going to do something similar to Batman and other heroes of DC Comics, 20th Century Fox – the X-Men, Sony wanted to promote Spider-Man (who eventually did return to the Marvel world). By all accounts, the best chance of rivalry with Marvel at the famous “Star Wars”, which in a few years acquire biopic Han Solo and other popular characters.
Actually, even Universal is trying to unite its iconic characters – Dracula, Franknshteyna, Mummy and vampire hunter Van Helsing – into a coherent whole.
