Who would of ever thought that the Fast and Furious series would become one of the most successful film franchises in modern Hollywood. This is pretty incredible if you ask me, from the very first Fast and Furious until the latest action packed movie this has been a fun ride!
Is A Ninth Fast And Furious Movie Happening?
According to Cinema Blend, right off the bat, yes, Fast and Furious 9 is definitely happening — although it’s currently unclear what the official title of the project will actually be by the time it hits theaters. Last year series star Vin Diesel took to social media to announce that he intended to see the franchise through to two decades and ten films. This means (if that idea continues to hold strong) that Fast and Furious 9 may mark the second to last installment in the franchise — or at least pave the way for an eventual reboot/reinvention of the property.
When Is The Fast And Furious 9 Release Date?
Following the April 2017 release of The Fate of the Furious, it looks like we will have to wait a few years before the next chapter in this franchise debuts on the silver screen. Fast and Furious 9 is currently slated for an April 10, 2020 release date, one year later than Universal had initially planned for — but more on that drama later.
What Is Going Behind The Scenes?
The Fast and Furious franchise is no stranger to feuds behind the scenes, but it looks like things have already begun to heat up behind the scenes on the next installment of this long-running franchise. Specifically, Tyrese Gibson called out Dwayne Johnson on social media for forcing the delay of the film. Not to be outdone, Dwayne Johnson has started firing back, and it looks like yet another cycle of Fast and Furious actors taking sides is upon us. As of right now, it is unclear how this drama is going to affect the final cut of the film (if it does at all), but it shows that we may be in for yet another tumultuous shoot for some of these actors.
