Fast And Furious 9
It took a long while for this to get going, however; production is finally rolling on Fast & Furious Nine (9). The sequel welcomes the return of Justin Lin to the director’s chair, who directed Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious Six. These films put the franchise on track to become a worldwide juggernaut. The last 2 installments of the Fast franchise both grossed more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office, making this a rare franchise that performs best as it ages.
The initial development of the latest Fast & Furious movie got off to a slow start in comparison to the more recent Fast & Furious films. The Hobbs and Shaw spinoff is more than likely the cause of this delay. Franchise writer, Chris Morgan, wrote the Hobbs And Shaw spinoff. The script followed some on-set hostility between Johnson and Diesel throughout Fate of the Furious. As a result of Johnson’s script quality, the main Fast & Furious franchise was somewhat placed on pause to make way for Hobbs and Shaw.
About The Film Script
The initial script for the latest Fast and Furious sequel was written by Daniel Casey, with an unknown female author which was a stipulation of Michelle Rodriguez’s return. We haven’t heard much regarding the plot, however the franchise is due to come to a finish with Fast & Furious Ten. So we expect Fast and Furious 9’s storyline to set up the endgame.
Johnson won’t be returning for Fast & Furious Nine, however Diesel recruited John Cena to come back in an unknown role. The same old players are will return including Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Nathalie Emmanuel, etc…but so far we don’t have the official “start of production” announcement from Universal nor confirmed cast list. All we’ve got is the below Instagram video from Diesel, during which he and Rodriguez talk about the very first day of filming on the new Fast 9 movie. Check it out.
Fast & Furious Nine is will hit theaters on may 22, 2020.
