Don’t ask questions. If you think about it for more than 10 seconds you’ll ruin everything. Just accept that it’s happening. Trust me. It’s better that way.

Lucas Black, who starred in Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift, is returning to reprise his Sean Boswell role in Fast & Furious 7. Black, most recently seen as Pee Wee Reese in the Jackie Robinson film 42, has signed a deal that calls for his character to become a regular in the series and he will be part of at least the next three installments of Universal Pictures’ most lucrative film franchise. Fast & Furious 7 will be released next July 11. [Deadline]

My favorite thing about the Fast & Furious franchise is that somewhere between the fourth and fifth film they just started saying “F*ck it, let’s do it” to every single question anyone asked them.

“Hey, should we bring in The Rock as a comically muscular, jurisdiction-ignoring U.S. military-type who tries to hunt down Vin Diesel?”

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

“Should we set the whole thing in Brazil, open it with a train robbery that ends in a fiery explosion and Paul Walker and Vin Diesel driving an expensive sports car off a cliff, and end it with an elaborate heist followed by a car chase that does millions of dollars in damage to downtown Rio?

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

“Remember how Letty died? Should we make her alive now?”

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

“Should we bring in Gina Carano and have her double cross The Rock to side with a group of bad guys who drive a tank out of the back of a truck and start laying waste to everyone and everything on a five-mile stretch of highway?

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

“Should we have Vin Diesel drive a neon Honda out through the nose of an exploding, crashing airplane?

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

“Should we bring in Statham?”

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

“Should we ask Denzel if he wants to be in it, even though there is a 100% chance he will say no?”

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

“Should we ask Kurt Russell next?”

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

“Should we bring back that kid from the third movie we filmed in Tokyo seven years ago and give him a part in Fast 7?

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

“How ’bout Fast 8 and Fast 9, too?

“F*ck it, let’s do it.”

Mark my words: One day this franchise will end up in outer space with Nicolas Cage as a deranged military leader who is planning to blow up the Earth and also holds intergalactic dune buggy races on the moon. I can’t wait.
