Well, here's some unfortunate news: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal has bumped the next installment of the Fast And Furious franchise into spring of 2020, roughly a year later than the film was expected to arrive.
"The movie, which doesn't yet have a director, was to have raced into theaters on April 19, 2019. It will now open on April 10, 2020, which is Easter weekend. Many of the franchise stars are returning, led by Vin Diesel. It is unclear whether Dwayne Johnson will return."
Few things here: first of all - yeah, if Fast And Furious 9 doesn't even have a director lined up, of course they're gonna need some extra time to put this one together. Secondly - that it's "unclear" whether or not The Rock will return to the franchise is an interesting wrinkle. We're guessing he does, but we're also guessing he negotiates a bigger paycheck outta the deal.
Nothing further to report at this time, but we'll keep you informed as further updates roll in. In the meantime, hit the comments below to...I dunno, talk about Fate Of The Furious, I guess? Will also accept XXX 3: Return Of Xander Cage talk.
