All good things must come to an end and such is the case with the Fast and Furious. Universal Pictures has decided that two more films will be needed, after 2021’s F9, to close out the epic action franchise that began back in 2001.
According to Deadline, Justin Lin will return to direct Fast and Furious 10 and 11, which are likely to tell one final, epic story set over two films. So, basically, Fast and Furious: Infinity War and Endgame? It sounds like it.

There’s no other news beyond that but we should know more when F9 hits theatres next year. That film, also helmed by Lin (who also directed The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6), reportedly goes to space. How will two movies after that get bigger than space? I can’t wait to find out.
Space. The final frontier. Not just in Star Trek but for the Fast and Furious franchise. The joke that space was the the only place left for the high octane action franchise to go has been floating around for years. The filmmakers even played along for a while. But a...Read more
