Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of F9, the latest from The Fast and the Furious film franchise, and the apparent third-from-last entry in the main series which is set to wrap up with F10 and F11 shooting back to back. However, it seems there’s plenty of gas left in the tank for the franchise, as Dwayne Johnson’s regular producing partner Hiram Garcia has revealed to ComicBook.com that all the creators involved have plans to give fans more of this wild universe, including the sequel to 2019’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
“We’re always thinking ahead, and we’ve been developing right away; we actually have a really great story that we’ve been cooking up,” said Garcia. “Chris Morgan has been writing, and I think that’s the beauty; it’s the Fast & Furious universe, right? I think it’s not so much about separating or anything: they all fall under the umbrella of Fast & Furious, Fast & Furious universe, and Fast & Furious is the mothership, but obviously, that franchise is so beloved and has so many fans. There are so many stories to tell within it.”
“For us, we 100% want to do our part: continue to tell that story, ride with Hobbs,” Garcia continued. “He’s always connected to those guys and the way those things intertwine, we’re gonna have to find out, but we’re full steam ahead on that, we’ve got a great story, a big fun story. Chris Morgan is a brilliant writer, and he’s taken that entire universe in so many different directions, but that’s definitely moving along; just having a conversation about it right before you and I spoke, and I’m real excited where it’s going, but we’ll continue to push along. We know fans wanted it; that first one was received really well, and so that’s what we needed to know, that the fans wanted more, so we’re going to deliver it.”
While it sounds like the project is in its earliest stages, this news will likely delight fans of these hard-hitting, explosive blockbusters. In the meantime, F9, the ninth Fast & Furious movie, is set for release on June 25th, 2021.
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, The Suicide Squad).
The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tbilisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
F9 sees Justin Lin directing series veterans Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Sung Kang, Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren, along with franchise newcomers John Cena (Bumblebee), Finn Cole (Peaky Blinders), Anna Sawai (Ninja Assassin), Vinnie Bennett (Ghost in the Shell), Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy), Cardi B (Hustlers), MMA fighter Francis Ngannou, and singer Ozuna.
