As you know, this film has gone through some major changes recently as director Justin Lin left the project due to creative differences and was replaced by Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Transporter). It’ll be interesting to see how this turns out as Diesel is obviously running the franchise now.
Fast 9 wasn’t the same without franchise writer Chris Morgan and with the director change in the middle of production, losing the franchise director, who knows what to expect. Morgan and Lin were good for this franchise, but now that they’re gone…. we’ll just have to wait and see.
Dan Mazeau wrote the screenplay for Fast X with Lin. We still don’t have any details regarding the synopsis for this next chapter of the story, but it will be the first of two films that bring the main saga to a close.
Diesel previously teased that there are “angles coming” to the mythology that will make fans smile. The cast includes Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Sung Kang |, Charlize Theronand Jason Momoa as a flamboyant villain.
The next two movies are filming back to back, and Diesel has said that the target release date is February 2023 for the first one and February 2024 for the second one.
