Universal Pictures has announced that the ninth installment in the SUPER popular ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise has been pushed back an entire year!
Originally scheduled to open April 19th 2019, the film will now drop on April 10th 2020, on Easter weekend of that year. The film also doesn’t have a director right now. Many of the franchise stars are returning, led by Vin Diesel, but it is unclear whether Dwayne Johnson will return amidst a VERY public online battle between the two stars that went viral.
Following the release of ‘The Fate of the Furious’ earlier this year, Universal began plotting a spin-off with Johnson and Jason Statham, that could very well be the explanation for the delay.
