Fast and Furious Director Articles at Yahoo Movies

I've just had my first two stories for Yahoo Movies published on who will take over directing the Fast and Furious movies now that Justin Lin has departed.

The first article is all about the three directors that were rumoured to be on the short list to take on Fast and Furious 7. Who will direct the next installment in the Fast and Furious franchise? All three names are interesting if not terribly exciting but the article is worth a look to see the three names that looked likely according to early reports.


Then another name was thrown into the mix. The second article works on the assumption that James Wan, the director of Saw and Insidious, might be the director tasked with taking on the next film in the Fast and Furious franchise. This really excited me as later in the year I will be doing a director retrospective for Filmoria on James Wan ahead of the release of the Insidious sequel. This article looks at why James Wan is an excellent choice for being the Fast and Furious 7 director.


Now I guess fans of the franchise just have to hope the producers are not being overly optimistic and that the sixth one actually lives up to some of its hype and that it makes a killing at the box office. The trailer does look pretty good to me. I'm all for less of the street racing and more of the 'vehicular warfare' and seven is supposed to start shooting this summer!



Anyone up for this? All these posters with the characters facing away are pretty cool too don't you think?
