Dwayne Johnson's Fast and Furious spin-off confirmed

Dwayne Johnson's Fast and Furious spin-off confirmed”

Yesterday it was announced that the next Fast and Furious movie - number 9 in the franchise - was being pushed back to 2020, and now we know why.

No director has been named yet for the spin-off, but Variety reports that The Nice Guys director Shane Black is one of the directors being eyed to helm the project.

By the end of "Fate of the Furious", he and Hobbs had come to an understanding, with their pressurized relationship one of the movie's major themes.

The starring vehicle for Johnson and Statham will have a script penned by Chris Morgan, who has written almost every Fast and Furious script since Tokyo Drift, and a scheduled release date of July 26, 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Universal Pictures has confirmed that the gap year will be filled by the franchise's first non-numbered, feature-length featuring recurring characters Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckhard Shaw (Jason Statham), according to CTV News.

A fresh Fast & Furious feud has seen Tyrese Gibson lash out at co-star Dwayne Johnson for delaying the next installment. "Until Dewayne (sic) showed up I guess this whole time he had a problem cause he wasn't the ONLY ONE on the movie poster (sic)", he wrote.

Gibson, 38, has played Roman Pearce in five of the Fast and the Furious films. "Guys guys just relax I'm just a passionate film critic".

Diesel later threw his hat in the ring by posting a photo of him standing side-by-side with Tyrese and the late Paul Walker, who was the center of the franchise before his passing. The studio hasn't given any reason regarding the changed release date.

Last year The Rock called Vin Diesel a "chicken sh** candy ass" and the two were reportedly kept separate on the Fast and Furious 8 tour.
