The “Fast & Furious” movies have been among the most successful in Hollywood history, with the upcoming “Fast 9” slated to hit theatres in May 2021.
However, the rubber-burning film franchise will be coming to the end of the road, with Variety confirming there will be only two more films after that.
Director Justin Lin, who has helmed the series’ third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and ninth films — will direct the final two instalments.
However, just because the “Fast & Furious” franchise will cross the finish line doesn’t mean it will be the last that fans will see of the characters. According to Variety, Universal is developing more spinoffs, following the success of 2019’s “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”, which starred Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham and went on to rake in $759 million worldwide.
According to Deadline, timing on the final two films has yet to be determined. However, the outlet points out it’s likely that the final films will tell one big story spread out over two movies, a la “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame”.
