Universal’s Fast Five is still a week away from opening on April 29, but Universal Pictures has already signed Chris Morgan to write Fast Six as part of a two-year first-look pact he signed with the studio. Morgan has written the third, fourth and fifth installments in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise [THR].
“I don’t want to be the guy who gets a vanity production deal and does nothing,” he says. “I want to be the guy who goes out there and busts my ass and fixes broken stories and finds material to bring back — quite frankly, as a reward to the studio that has worked with me for so long. We have a very effective partnership, and we want to get some big movies off the ground.”
