Fast And Furious Series Could Go To Space, Writer Says
"I'm down for whatever."
The Fast & Furious series might be nearly 20 years old, but it shows no sign of slowing down. The first spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw, hits theaters this week and the next film in the series is also in production. Now regular series writer Chris Morgan has suggested that a future movie could have an usual setting--outer space.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Morgan revealed that no setting was off-limits for the franchise, as long as it fulfilled some simple criteria. "I would never shoot down space," he said. "Never, never. I would literally never shoot down anything, as long as it hits the parameters: 'Is it badass? is it awesome? Will the audience love it? And will it not break faith with the audience as they're watching it?' I'm down for whatever."
While a space adventure for Dominic Toretto and crew might happen at some stage, it won't be the currently-untitled ninth Fast & Furious movie, which hits theaters on May 22, 2020. It's directed by Justin Lin, who has made four of the previous movies, and stars series regulars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, and Tyrese Gibson, with Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren both returning from 2018's The Fate of the Furious.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson won't be in Fast 9, but can be seen alongside Jason Statham in the spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, which releases on August 2. You can watch the latest trailer here. For more, read GameSpot's guide to the biggest upcoming movies of 2019.
