Fast and Furious Spinoff Gets 2019 Release

I totally forgot about this Fast & Furious spin-off featuring Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson but it sounds like it could be a riot as they were the best thing about Fate of the Furious.

According to THR the film now has a release date: “With Fast 9 moved back to 2020, Universal is now officially putting the project on the calendar, dating it for a July 26, 2019, opening.

Chris Morgan, who has shepherded the script chores since 2006’s Toyko Drift, is now writing the spinoff that will focus on Luke Hobbs, the Diplomatic Security Service agent played by Johnson, and Deckard Shaw, an assassin character who was one of the primary bad guys in the franchise before being redeemed and joining the motley crew of antiheroes that make up the roll call.

Meanwhile, sources say that one reason for Fast 9‘s push was to accommodate potential director scheduling. Sources also say Justin Lin may be lining up to return to the franchise and is the top man to helm the core entry of Fast 9.”

I think a spinoff may be a good idea to give the franchise some new life…
