Even though the Fast & Furious series started off being primarily about car racing, it’s now more associated with ever-more over the top action sequences.  Despite that, I would have said that having the gang travel to space would be just too absurd – but apparently it’s not something that Chris Morgan, who’s scripted the majority of the films,  is ruling out. In an interview with ‘Polygon’, he was asked [jokingly, I presume] if the film series might see Dominic Toretto and company travel to space one day. His reply was:

“I would never shoot down space. Never, never. I would literally never shoot down anything, as long as it hits the parameters: ‘Is it badass? is it awesome? Will the audience love it? And will it not break faith with the audience as they’re watching it?’ I’m down for whatever. It just has to be cool and it has to be good. You know, that’s the thing. I would say nothing is off-limits as long as we can stay on the right side of keeping the audience engaged.”

So it’s certainly possible. And, while I’m not a huge fan of this franchise, maybe I should be more receptive to the idea seeing as Moonraker is one of my most-watched Bond movies.

Anyway, in the meantime the next installment Fast And Furious: Hobbs And Shaw is out this Thursday in the UK, a day before its North American release!

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
