With his next horror film The Conjuring set to scare audiences this weekend, director James Wan is already gearing up for his next big adventure. Wan was confirmed for the seventh installment in the Fast and Furious franchise a couple of months back, and started designing the films action sequences a month or so ago. While the action sequences from Fast & Furious 6 are going to be tough to beat, at least we now know what tone Wan is going for with the next film. It should make a lot more sense to those of you who stuck around to watch the end-credits scene. Hit the jump to see what Wan has in mind.
Heres what Wan had to say about Fast 7 in an interview with The Playlist:
I really like the theme of this next one that were going with. I cant really talk about it, but I like the theme; its one that I really relate to. Then theres the drive of Number Seven, which was set up at the end of Number Six, which is a classic revenge story. Im a big [genre] fan, so thats how Im approaching it: Im looking at it like a gritty, 70s revenge thriller, but one that still fits into the Fast and Furious series.
Wan also cited The French Connection and Death Wish as inspirational films for his take on the franchise. It sounds like the team probably wont be planning any major heists this time around, unless its got something to do with their ultimate goal of bringing in (or taking down) the bad guy. What are your thoughts on Wans plans for Fast 7?
