Vin Diesel Reveals Release Dates For “Fast and Furious” 9 & 10
Vin Diesel recently posted the following image on social media, which reveals the release dates of the ninth and tenth installments of The Fast and the Furious Franchise.
The Fast and the Furious Franchise began with Rob Cohen’s The Fast and the Furious, which debuted in 2001, and nearly derailed with 2 Fast 2 Furious and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Thankfully, Justin Lin’s direction of the fourth, fifth, and sixth installments rejuvenated this franchise. James Wan, who is better known for directing Insidious and The Conjuring, helmed Furious Seven, which grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide. Therefore, Universal Pictures scheduling as many sequels as possible was inevitable.
F. Gary Gray, the director of Straight Outta Compton, is attached to helm Fast 8, which will debut on April 14th. 2017. Although it is not yet known who is writing or directing The Fast and the Furious 9 and The Fast and the Furious 10, fans now know that there will be a two-year gap in between each of the next three installments of this wildly successful franchise. Releasing these films in April is a wise fiscal decision because Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Furious Seven all thrived when they were released in April of 2009, 2011, and 2015.
Are you looking forward to the next three installments of The Fast and The Furious Franchise?
