A day after pushing the release date for Fast & Furious 9 to 2020, Universal is placing their money on a spin-off movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham that is set to appear on July 26, 2019.
Chris Morgan, who has written every movie script for the franchise since 2006, will write the script for the spin-off, which will see Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Statham) go off on an adventure.
Yesterday, Universal moved Fast & Furious 9 to a release date on April 10, 2020. The studio had previously placed DreamWorks Trolls 2 in that slot, and bumped the animated film to a February 14, 2020 release.
The Fate of the Furious grossed $1.2 billion worldwide, bringing the franchises all-time box office total to $5.1 billion since the first films release in 2001.
