- We have the first information
The 'Fast & Furious' series has been thrilling quite a few fans for more than a decade. According to Vin Diesel, spin-offs of the 'Fast & Furious' franchise are already in the works, including a film that will feature mostly female characters.
"I started developing the female spin-off, with other spin-offs in 2017, and the sooner I deliver the final, the sooner I can start all the other spin-offs," he told Marc Malkin at the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) Block Party.
Vin Diesel talks about sequel
"'Fast X' is the first part of a two-part ending, but it's bittersweet to think of a finale", he mentioned at the premiere in Rome, as reported by 'Variety'. Diesel hinted that the end of the series could be spread over three films.
"Look at how many characters and great talent are in the film [... ]. There was no way I could pull this off if I didn't have everyone in it for five seconds. These characters are interesting and we need to see more of them," he continues.
In 'Fast X', the amazing comebacks of "Gisele," played by Gal Gadot, and "Luke Hobbs," embodied by Dwayne Johnson, are revealed.
Vin Diesel admits that keeping the guest appearances a secret was a challenge: "I'm so excited to have her back home, and I'm even more excited to see the fans' reactions and how happy it makes people".
Who will be in the spin-offs?
Co-star Michelle Rodriguez revealed at the premiere that Gal Gadot had made cameo appearances for previous films, but they were not shown in the final version.
"We shot other things a long time ago that maybe wouldn't have fit into this particular film as a finale [...]. Shooting loose ends is a very tricky thing, because you want to [prove] your great talent, but at the same time you have to be very careful to keep the emotional state of the audience at the end of the film. It's something you have to juggle with," Diesel confirmed at the premiere in Rome.
Rodriguez isn't sure if she will be part of the spin-off. "You pass the baton. You take the back seat, you go to the passenger side. When it comes to the next generation, you have to do that. That's the only way to let them determine the future," she said.
Only time will tell how the 'Fast & Furious' franchise will continue, and who we will see on the big screen in the future.
