During the first 21 years of the 21st century, Fast & Furious has become one of the franchises of action movies biggest and box office. The saga began as a movie focused on the underground racing of modified cars in Los Angeles, but it was hybridized into an action saga without much love for the laws of physics.
After nine major movies, a series, and a spin-off (Hobbs & Shaw), one might think that people are saturated with Fast & Furious movies. However, the box office data reflects something else, and Fast & Furious 9 is the highest grossing Hollywood movie of what we have in 2021, only behind Hola Mama, from China.
However, the end of Fast & Furious is in sight. It has already been reported that the next two films will serve as the final chapter for the main saga.
Fast & Furious 10 and 11 will be released respectively in 2023 and 2024, narrating the final chapter of the adventures of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his “family”. Justin lin He will return to directing the films, as he has already done with five installments of the saga.
Lin has been talking to ScreenRant about the end of the Fast & Furious saga. The director has expressed his wish that Fast & Furious 11 is not the end of the franchise (not this series in particular).
“Nearly 80% of the ideas and conversations we’ve had have not made it to the screen,” Lin said. “I think many options can be explored, especially focused on streaming.”
One of the projects that are assumed in development within the franchise is the Cipher spin-off, the character of Charlize Theron, although not much is known about him. There has also been talk about a film focused on the female protagonists of the saga taking a step forward and being the ones who face most of the risks.
Be that as it may, at the moment it seems that all this is Justin Lin’s wishes, but keeping in mind that the franchise of Fast & furious it is still profitable, it would not be unreasonable for Universal to give the green light to another project.
