Director Justin Lin is aboard to helm the 10th and 11th films in the core Fast and Furious franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It’s been reiterated that these movies will conclude the main Fast and Furious saga.
Franchise veteran Lin (who previously directed The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6) recently returned to the Fast universe to direct F9. F9 was scheduled to arrive this year but was pushed until May 28, 2021, alongside a horde of other major films to have their 2020 release plans scuppered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Franchise star Vin Diesel previously confirmed Lin would be directing F9 and Fast 10 back in 2018, and mentioned that the tenth instalment would be broken into “Fast 10 parts one and two” during an interview back in February this year.
Fast and Furious producer Neal Moritz and Diesel have both previously discussed the fact that these films will form the finale for the main Fast saga, but Diesel has expressed his support for any future spin-offs, acknowledging “it’d be good to give back to Universal” in return for its support over the past two decades and noting “it would be nice for this world to continue for generations to come.”
Dwayne Johnson confirmed that a sequel to 2019’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is in active development back in April this year.
