Fast and Furious - Where to next?

A new The Fast and the Furious film is coming out. I'm pretty sure this is the fourth sequel after the original, 2 Fast 2 Furious and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Finally, Vin Diesel is back in the franchise and to celebrate, they've dropped the identifyers from the title of the original, perfecting a title that was, I think we can all now admit, a little identifyer heavy.

However, with such a slightly-different and not clever sequel title, I am surprised the studio did not think that this would confuse audiences into thinking the film was a remake or a very subtle pornographic knockoff. This also got me thinking that if the franchise continues along this path, they may be strapped for titles, since the current trend forces them to utilize very-slight variations on the same theme. However, a quick internet seach revealed some upcoming sequel titles for the franchise all currently in pre-production.

Take a look:

"5 Fast 5 Furious"

"A Fast and A Furious"

"Faster and Furiouster"

"Fast and Furious: Kahuna Breeze"

"Some Fast and Some Furious"

"The Fast and the Furious: Kahuna Breeze"

"A Fast and a Furious: Kahuna Breeze"

"The Fast and 2 Furious: Kahuna Breeze"

"Some Fast and Furious: Kahuna Breeze"

"The Fast and the Furious 2"




I mean, they'll probably be Netflix rentals for this guy.
