Fast and Furious, or also known as the Fast Saga, has been coming to an end but there’s a lot of expectations of more future entries on the project. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw was the first attempt with Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson taking on the leading roles this time around. Yet, due to quite a bit of drama Johnson has seemingly left the entire franchise behind and it seems that producer Kelly McCormick doesn’t have any motivating words to add in regards to the future of this spinoff.
While promoting the upcoming Violent Night film, she confirmed that while they’d be all-in for a new entry, “there’s no conversations at this time” as confirmed by McCormick. With one of its leading stars out of the picture, it’s not too surprising but Statham is a household name and could easily carry on the franchise with a new addition replacing Johnson as the new co-lead. She goes on to highlight that it was meant to set up more stories in this universe, especially with Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Hart joining in the spinoff.
I do feel like there were a lot of seeds planted to try to create a spinoff in a way that included a Kevin Hart and a Ryan Reynolds and sort of all that kind of stuff. And that was intentional but not necessarily because we had plans in mind just because it would be fun to have different players for them to play with if anybody or we wanted to go for it in a different way. So, you know, I don’t know, I mean Dwayne’s a really busy guy and you know, he would be the one to motivate all of that. So, you know, we’re ready if he wants to and until then he’s just dominating so all power to him.Kelly McCormick
For now, it seems that the future of the Fast Saga will be on hold, or they’ll start pitching ideas as soon as the final film starts rolling towards cinemas. Perhaps we’ll enter the next Saga for the franchise with the Furious Saga.
