The main Fast & Furious franchise is ending soon with a two-part finale with most of the cast from the previous films. Now Universal Studios is looking to the future with the franchise and it might be female.
In a new interview with Business Insider, Universal Pictures film chief Donna Langley is considering a new spin-off in the franchise with an all-female cast. She claims that Vin Diesel, also the producer of the Fast films, is interested in the idea as well.
I would love to see a female ‘Fast.’ So would Vin [Diesel]. We have so many great and amazing female characters in our franchise and now there’s the new addition of Brie Larson to add to the incredible roster. I would love to see us do a female ‘Fast.’
There have been rumors for a few years now about the “Fast and Furious” franchise getting a spinoff spotlighting its female ensemble, which includes Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren, and Nathalie Emmanuel. Academy Award winner Brie Larson is the latest woman to be added to the cast of “Fast X.”
According to Variety, Vin Diesel announced in 2019 via the comments section on Instagram that screenwriters Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet were being tasked with penning the female spinoff, but there’s never been an official studio greenlight to the project.
We’ll see if that woman-led Fast & Furious spin-off actually happens. It’s doubtful that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will return to the Hobbs & Shaw spin-off that was established in 2019 with Jason Statham due to issues with Diesel. Although a female-led Fast & Furious franchise is a fresh idea.
