Justin Lin, director of Fast & Furious 9, confirmed that filming has wrapped. The movie was originally set to release this year but was later moved to 2020 to give way to its spinoff Hobbs & Shaw.
Despite the troubles that happened during the production of the previous film, Hobbs & Shaw was an absolute commercial success at the international box office.
This “trouble” between Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Vin Diesel has been put in the past, with The Rock even teasing Hobbs’ come back for Fast & Furious 10. That film is reported to be the finale of the Fast & Furious series.
The Fast & Furious franchise has become a global phenomenon with filming on locations like Rio de Janeiro, Abu Dhabi, and Iceland. This series’ globetrotting streak will continue with Fast & Furious 9 as the director confirmed that the production team has visited places like Thailand and Edinburgh.
When can we expect some footage?
While it’s still six more months to go before the movie’s release, Universal is gearing up for its marketing strategies. They will most likely want to launch a trailer by next month, catching up with much-awaited movies in December like Jumanji: The Next Level and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
The studio decided to do something like this three years ago when it released the Fate of the Furious trailer at the same time as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was playing on the big screen. It worked for them then so they may choose to repeat this act.
