‘Fast And Furious 8’ On The Verge Of Cancellation
“Fast and Furious Seven” may have captured a wide range of audience but the 8th installment of the movie may be in a lot of trouble. If rumors are to be believed, “Fast and Furious 8” may well be cancelled if the team is not able to solve a problem.
Film production co-president, Jeffrey Kirschenbaum, has said goodbye to the movie following a $200 million budget for “Fast and Furious 7.” The director of the same movie, James Wan, is also packing his bags to concentrate more on “The Conjuring” sequel.
It seems that the impact the movies have on the audience is less compared to what it had on the team involved in the movie. According to Celeb Café, “Insiders confirm that the $200 million, two-year production of Furious 7 was so demanding that it actually compromised Wan’s health.”
There is also a rumor that states that Vin Diesel may take up the position of director for “Fast and Furious 8.” He has previously directed short film “Los Bandoleros“ in 2008 and he seems to be quite interested to sit on the director’s chair.
There are claims that Vin Diesel is quite tough to work with, though the Diesel camp has nullified the claims by dismissing it as complete nonsense. Vin made a statement in his Facebook account saying, “Universal has been so good to me and so trusting of the vision… they have been like family… I promised the studio I would deliver one last Trilogy to end the saga.”
The film franchise is also considering Jaume Collet-Serra as a director. But hope seems grim in that prospect, too. Even if the 8th installment will be released, it may not be anytime soon.
