Justin Lin

It all started in 2001 when Universal released a humble street racing movie called The Fast and the Furious. Often imitated, never duplicated, the Fast and Furious franchise has spanned six films, and will be releasing their seventh in 2016. But with the passing of Paul Walker, and some of the cast committed to other projects, the franchise will have to come to an end sooner or later. So Universal is already planning to wave the checkered flag.

A new report says that the studio is eying Justin Lin to return to direct the final installments of the blockbuster franchise.

Check out the video here below, where stars Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, and Sonequa Martin-Green talk about their experience in the maze (there’s also a little walk-through footage) and how it compares to the real set of the television series filmed in Georgia.

Jaws

Universal Studios announced on Friday on their Facebook page that their Orlando, Florida resort will be closing the Jaws-themed area and water ride Captain Jake’s Amity Boat Tours on January 2, 2012.

The ride, which was inspired by the Jaws portion of the Universal Studios Hollywood resort’s backlot tram experience, has been in operation since the Orlando resort opened in June 1990 at a cost of $65 million. Three months after the ride opened Universal temporarily shut it down due to technical problems, but was successfully re-opened in the spring of 1993 with Jaws director Steven Spielberg and stars Roy Scheider and Lorraine Gary on hand for the occasion. Over the next 18 years the ride would be continuously closed and refurbished often due to hurricanes that struck central Florida.

Universal Studios Hollywood has officially announced that Jimmy Fallon will be their brand new virtual host on the famed Studio Tour, which over 150 million people have taken part in.

Fallon will be introducing and setting up videos that will play on the new HD screens that are now part of the tram cars after some major high-tech upgrades were unleashed on the park, including the insane new 3D King Kong experience.

On his new gig, Fallon said, “We really had fun with filming my role. We brought some writers out from our show and added some jokes, more play with the Studio Tour guides, the tram drivers and we added a song or two. The tour itself is a classic, a really great experience. For anyone with any interest in show business, it’s all there: the glamor, the glitz, all the hard work that goes into making a movie or a TV show can be experienced on the Universal Studios Hollywood Studio Tour. I’m very happy to be a part of it.”
