News Fast and Furious Series to End After Two More Installments?

Fast and Furious Series to End After Two More Installments?

Have the fast and the furious finally run out of NOS?

  • Movie franchise started in 2001

  • Has grossed nearly $6B for Universal


We’re not sure if we’re disappointed or relieved, but a new report says that there will be just two more movies in the Fast & Furious franchise before it drives off into the sunset. That’s two on top of F9, which is currently in post-production.

Deadline Hollywood reports on the news from Universal Studios, saying that Director Justin Lin, who has directed five of the Fast movies including F9, is said to be in talks to direct numbers 10 and 11.

According to the report, the two final films will combine to tell one overarching story and bring back many of the characters we’ve seen in the existing movies. Focusing on Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto, bringing back Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, and Jordana Brewster.

So far the eight movies and the Hobbs & Shaw spinoff have grossed more than $5.7 billion at the box office since officer Brian O’Conner first went undercover to help authorities figure out who was stealing trailer loads of VCR/TV combo players. Yup, that’s how old the franchise is now, they weren’t even DVD players. Remember when the franchise was about street racing and lead to the sale of likely billions in underglow?

We would keep in mind that despite these reports, Hollywood is never one to back away from a cash cow, and this series is certainly that. Maybe a few years after Fast 11 it will be time for a gritty reboot. Or to finish off the keyboard with Fast 12. Or to keep doing more spinoff movies (and animated series) where the characters break off on their own. And maybe by the time F11 rolls around we’ll all be ready to go back to the theatre.
