Universal Pictures Boss is Considering All-Female ‘Fast & Furious’ Spinoff Movie

As we know that the biggest franchise “Fast and Furious” is set to end with the upcoming two-part finale. Now, a studio chief of Universal Pictures, Donna Langley revealed in the interview with Business Insider that she’s quite open to a female-led spin-off of the “Fast and Furious” franchise.

She said, “I would love to see a female ‘Fast’. So would Vin [Diesel]. We have so many great and amazing female characters in our franchise, and now there’s the new addition of Brie Larson to add to the incredible roster. I would love to see us do a female ‘Fast.’”

Rumors have circulated for a few years about a potential spinoff spotlighting the various actresses of the franchise, including Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron. Helen Mirren and Nathalie Emmanuel. Oscar-winner Brie Larson will join the cast with the tenth entry. Vin Diesel announced in 2019 via the comments section on Instagram that screenwriters Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet were being tasked with penning the female spinoff, but there’s never been an official studio greenlight to the project.

Some of the cast have teased a female spinoff set in the “Fast & Furious” franchise in recent years.“The girls need a spin off,” franchise mainstay Ludacris said in 2021 during a SiriusXM Town Hall. “That’s what needs a spin off. All the bad ass, kick ass women that are in this film, that’s who deserves it.” Brewster, whose been with the “Fast” franchise since its original installment, added in the same interview, “That would be awesome. I’ve heard those rumors. I think that would be incredible. Think about all the people we could bring back, right? We could bring back Eva Mendes, who’d be incredible to work with.”

The main run of the franchise is set to end with the upcoming two-part finale that kicks off with the Louis Leterrier-directed and $300 million-budgeted “Fast X” which was shot across London, Rome, Turin, Lisbon, and Los Angeles and wrapped in August.

Larson isn’t the only Oscar-winning female actor joining the “Fast” franchise in its upcoming 10th installment. Rita Moreno is also set to appear in the sequel, which Universal will release in theaters on May 19, 2023. That’s not expected to be the end of the franchise, with more spin-offs like “Hobbs & Shaw” expected to happen.
