Fast & Furious 9 is nearing its release of June 2021, and while such anticipated movies usually have sequels under-production at this stage, Justin Lin says that he doesn’t think the shooting for Fast & Furious 10 is going to start before 2022.
While Fast & Furious 9 marks the first out of the three releases in the franchise ending finale trilogy, they’ll feature Dominic Toretto’s feud with his brother Jakob, and the struggles of Dominic’s entire family.
Justin Lin talked to Variety, where he ended up revealing that the chances of the production for Fast & Furious 10 starting before 2022 are really slim. Lin explained that a lengthy production phase for a big budget movie is too complicated.
No, probably not this year. I’m not quite sure when. You can never have enough time in development with these films. Even though I think there’s some ideas, I don’t think we’re going to be shooting this year.
The Fast & Furious saga wasn’t always as iconic as it is right now, since Tokyo Drift, the third installment of the series, was a moment where the series had hit the wall. Lin came in and directed the series to focus on more extreme situations involving cars and action instead of only focusing on illegal car-racing.[Via]
