Fast & Furious 7 Set For July 2014
And news on Pitch Perfect, Bourne & more

Yesterday was Paramount’s turn to show off its upcoming slate of films at the Las Vegas CinemaCon, while today brings news from Universal. The Universal gang announced a release date for Fast & Furious 7 plus sequels for Pitch Perfect, Snow White And The Huntsman and, more nebulously, the Bourne movie universe.

Given its franchise success, the Fast & Furious series was, somewhat naturally, the focus up front, with Vin Diesel and some of his co-stars on stage to announce that the next film, for now simply called Fast & Furious 7, is set for July 11, 2014. As was previously announced, James Wan is taking over the director’s driving seat for the seventh movie, which Diesel described as “probably the biggest one of all.” From what we’ve seen so far from Fast 6 (check out the latest trailer below), that’s a claim we’re intrigued to see paid off.

Also part of the presentation was footage from Kick-Ass 2, R.I.P.D. and Mark Wahlberg/Denzel Washington action thriller 2 Guns, along with a well-received 20 minutes of Despicable Me 2.

As for the future sequels, Pitch Perfect 2 is definitely in active development, with writer Kay Cannon back to craft the script and a 2015 release date currently pencilled in.

2015 will be a busy year for Snow White And The Huntsman also, as Universal boss Adam Fogelson revealed that a sequel is on the way, though no details were revealed about that. The Bourne film is even more of a mystery: despite Fogelson saying the studio is actively working on another, there’s no telling yet whether that means another outing for Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne or (much more likely) a return for Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross. Watch this space for more as we get it.
