Since 2001, the "Fast and Furious" franchise has provided high octane entertainment with its intense auto chases, incredible stunts, and ridiculous over-the-top action.
According to a source close to the actors, both Diesel and Johnson have been in talks to return for "Fast and Furious 9".
This film saw the resurrection of Owen Shaw, played by Luke Evans, and his brother Deckard Shaw, played by Jason Statham. I pointed out in an editorial recently that Vin Diesel's Dom has become something of a wet blanket for the series, while Johnson's Hobbs and Statham's Shaw were what really made Fate a fun and compelling movie. At least until a mysterious criminal known as Cipher (Charlize Theron) comes in and ultimately convinces Dom to work for her, as well as telling him to betray his team.
Now a remnant of what the series started out as, "The Fate of the Furious" is now nearly a parody of itself with a crew of street racers teaming up with unsafe criminals, and Central Intelligence Agency spoofs to save the world.
It's the most bro-tastic Hollywood feud you probably don't know about is Vin Diesel vs. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Like Hobbs, he goes from an enemy to a friend in the course of this movie. The series has had far better auto chases by this point, and I would like to see the next film stick to the basics instead of introducing another random, overpowered vehicle for the cars to contend with (drones, helicopters, airplanes, tanks, etc.). They should be in every movie ever.
While the spin-off is in very early stages, the concept would be Johnson and Statham teaming up to go after Theron's character. You might just find yourself on the edge of your seat like I was.
After seeing the trailers for this movie, there was little hope for it; however, in light of how bad the trailers looked, which showed Vin Diesel making out with Cipher briefly as well as snapshots of multiple vehicle scenes, which the movie improved upon those and was surprisingly better than expected.
It's a long way from street racing on the mean streets of L.A.to saving the world James Bond style, but that's the evolution the Fast and Furious franchise has taken, one that no one could have expected when the first film in the series debuted in 2001. The freaky rivalry/friendship that grows between The Rock and Statham in that film is electric in the same way that the relationship between The Rock and Diesel was in Fast 5, when any given scene could end with them punching or kissing each other. I had one question in mind: What's "The Fast and the Furious" without Paul Walker?
