Talk has been ongoing over the last few years that F10 would wrap up the current main storyline in the Fast & Furious franchise and today per Deadline, it is confirmed that the main films will indeed finish up with number 10 and 11. Better yet, Director Justin Lin, who returned to the franchise with F9, is in talks to helm the final two films in the current series as well.
Via Deadline: Universal Pictures is planning to wrap up its Fast & Furious core film franchise with two final movies that will bring to a close a franchise that has revved its way to become the highest-grossing movie series in the studio’s history. Justin Lin, who is in post-production on F9, is in talks to direct the final two installments and bring a saga that began nearly 20 years ago to a close.
It is also expected that Diesel and the core cast which includes Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel and Sung Kang will likely return for the big send off. The films are in the early stages of development and series writer Chris Morgan will return also to finish it off.
This doesn’t mean that the FF franchise will all be gone as spin-offs will take over including a sequel to Hobbs & Shaw with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham which is already in the works and there is also a female centric spin-off planned too which will highlight the women of the series.
F9 was supposed to hit this past May but the pandemic postponed it till next year with May 28, 2021 Bring the new date thus far. In F9, Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena).
There has been rumors of the films going into space which wouldn’t surprise me as they are always looking to outdo the previous outings but take that with a grain of salt. Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come as we are your destination for everything action!
