While Furious 7 continues to dominate, the emotionally bittersweet component regarding the tragic passing of Paul Walker continues to define the filmís broader narrative. However, according to co-star, Vin Diesel, words from the late franchise star may be all the motivation necessary to carry on with an eighth film. (Although, the current film making a bajillion dollars also kind of helps.)
