For all of us who have fully enjoyed the ‘Fast & Furious’ saga and are proud of it without fear of what people will say —there are many prejudices out there—, glimpse the final closure of the adventures of Toretto and company after the continuation of ‘Fast X’ is little less than a jug of cold water, and Vin Diesel thinks the same: “It’s bittersweet to think about the end”.
faster, more furious
But this does not mean that after the eleventh film of the fast and furious is the point and end for these delicious orgies brimming with mindless action and devoid of any logic. Diesel, the main engine of the franchise, has already dropped that the future may bring us some other spinoff focused on some of the many characters that populate the FastVerso.
“Look at all the characters and big stars in the movie. There was no way I could do it unless I took each one out for five seconds. Those characters are interesting and we need to see more of them.”
If this sounds like good news to you, things can only get better, because the actor and producer has confirmed that the development of these “cutting” tapes —that’s what the RAE likes us to call them— dates back to 2017, and includes a dunk on the multiple female characters that we have known for the last 22 years.
“I started developing the women’s spinoff in 2017 alongside other spinoffs, and the sooner I deliver the finale, the sooner I can launch all the spinoffs.”
The possibilities are virtually endless. The Ramsey of Nathalie Emmanuel, the Cipher of Charlize Theron, the Tess of Brie Larson or the Isabel by Daniela Melchior —my kingdom for a spinoff focused on her— are options to consider. Although, yes, it seems that Michelle Rodríguez would not be very up for the jobpreferring to focus the spotlight on the new additions.
“You pass the baton. You sit in the back. You sit on the passenger side. When the next generation comes along, you have to. It’s the only way to let them define the future.”
It seems that we have family for a while.
