Vin Diesel (Guardians of the Galaxy) promised fans on Sunday that he plans to produce a final trilogy of the Fast & Furious franchise. 

"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 sage," he wrote.

var spotx_content_player_width = Math.max(document.getElementById('spotx_collapse').offsetWidth, 300); var spotx_content_player_height = parseInt(spotx_content_player_width * 0.75); var spotx_script = document.createElement('script'); var spotx_ad_done_function = function(bPlayedAd) { // Remove margin document.getElementById('spotx_collapse').style.marginBottom = "0px"; // Hide if we didn't show ad if (!bPlayedAd) { document.getElementById('spotx_collapse').style.display = "none"; } }; spotx_script.setAttribute('src',''); if (is_mobile) { spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_channel_id','121558'); } else { spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_unmute_on_mouse','1'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_channel_id','123161'); } spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_ad_unit','incontent'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_ad_volume','0'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_ad_mute','1'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_content_width',spotx_content_player_width); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_content_height',spotx_content_player_height); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_autoplay','1'); spotx_script.setAttribute('data-spotx_collapse','1'); document.getElementById('spotx_collapse').appendChild(spotx_script);

According to Variety, Diesel's post is interesting because it comes at a time when Furious 8, which is slated for release April 14, 2017, still hasn't found a director.

"My producing partner Neal [Moritz] would love for me to sign off on a director, but this is too special a franchise, so these matters have to be verry carefully handled. To be clear, NO ONE has been offered to help Fast 8 yet...let alone seen a script," Diesel wrote. 

Furious 7 still ranks as the fifth highest-grossing film of all time, having earned $1.5 billion worldwide.
