Fast and Furious franchise is heading into its ninth installment. Both Fast and Furious seven and Fast and Furious eight have crossed the $1 billion mark worldwide with Fast and Furious seven currently ranking as the eighth-biggest movie of all time with $1.51 bn.
And we’re not just getting Fast and Furious nine as there’s a tenth movie already planned.
Release Date :
Though initially scheduled for an April 2019 release, Fast and Furious nine will now be out in cinemas on May 22, 2020.
Pre-production on the ninth movie started in February 2019 in London, with Vin Diesel, who began the filming on June 24 with an onset video.
Filming was halted for a day on July 22, 2019, after the onset accident saw a stuntman injured, but it recommenced the following day.
As mentioned, a 10th and final movie is planned – initially set for a 2021 release when the ninth film was due in 2019, Fast X is yet to be rescheduled.
Pretty early on, it was clear that Vin Diesel (Dom), Michelle Rodriguez (Letty), and Chris’Ludacris’ Bridges (Tej) would be back reprising their roles.
Jordana Brewster has also been confirmed to return as Dom’s sister Mia. It’ll be interesting to see how she’s weaved back into the storyline since Mia was last seen retiring for a quieter life with Brian (played by the late Paul Walker).
John Cena will make his long-awaited and highly anticipated debut in the Fast And Furious Franchise, where he will portray series protagonist Dominic Toretto’s long-lost (and unknown) brother Jakob.
In an interview, the director Gary talked about The Fate of the Furious. He said, “Outer space? Listen, I wouldn’t rule anything out with this franchise,” he told ScreenRant.
There’s a possibility that Eton, the criminal organization in Hobbs & Shaw, could make an impact in Fast & Furious 9, but that’s just speculation for now.
