Another Fast and Furious spin-off is coming. And this time, it's going to be an all-female cast. An interview with lead actor and producer Vin Diesel reveals his plans for a female-oriented film.
The information comes from an MTV interview with Diesel in regards to the upcoming Fast film, Fast 9, in which he plays his familiar character, Dominic Toretto.
Diesel has been hinting toward this idea for a few years now, but this is the first we've seen of the idea beyond hints. Diesel has already confirmed the involvment of Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet in making the script.
The writers have worked on films like Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel, and Tomb Raider, giving us greater confidence in their ability to have a female-centric film.
Since the script is still in the works, there's no certainty as to what, or who, to expect in the film, or if it will even reach production. But since all of this aligns with past reports, we're inclined to believe it will hit theaters in due time.
This confidence is also aided by the ability for the Fast and Furious franchise to make sustainable spin-offs. Just last year, Hobbs & Shaw had released, grossing approximately $760 million worldwide. If the production team can maintain the level of performance they are now, a female-cast film should do just fine.
Though this does remind us of something from Vin Diesel's past that gives us some bad vibes. During the peak of the Triple X film, Vin Diesel was interviewed by a Brazillian YouTube creator. But the entire interview was derailed by Diesel's fascination with the woman, constantly stopping discussion to compliment the interviewer. He continues, touching her and professing his love to her. It's tremendously uncomfortable.
This does give us some concern as to how the women on set would be treated during production. We know this isn't indicative of him as an entire person, but it's still not good.
