Fast And The Furious Returns

Work on a sequel to the surprise hit, 'The Fast and the Furious', is already under way, reports the Guardian.

The controversial thriller about Los Angeles joyriders went straight to the top of the American box office this week, pulling in a huge $41.6m, and producer Neal Moritz has admitted talks have already started on 'The Fast and the Furious 2' with writers working on a preliminary script.

Moritz also reveals that the current film has a final "hidden" scene that the audience won't see until after the closing credits, which appears to pave the way for a follow-up.

The news of a sequel won't please American police who have been forced to patrol cinema car parks to prevent drivers from trying to emulate the film's dangerous stunts.

However, unrepentant director Rob Cohen has defended the film saying: "We show what happens when a car goes out of control. We show the consequences. It doesn't tell kids to go out and race. If that's the message they take from my movie, then they weren't paying attention."
