Universal Pictures is bringing 'Fast & Furious' to a close, Deadline reports. There will be two more films in the franchise and then they're done.
The studio also has a director in mind for the final installments. Justin Lin, who is currently in post production with 'Fast & Furious 9' aka 'F9', is in talks for the job.
The car racing franchise commenced almost 20 years ago. It's one of the highest grossing movie series ever - its eight installments and one spin-off have grossed $1.209 billion in the box office worldwide, in total.
It's unclear when the final films will enter production.
It seems to be the case that the two films will contain one big story.
Vin Diesel is, of course, back. Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel and Sung Kang will be at the wheel again as well.
It's still up in the air as to whether Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham - whose characters branched out in the franchise spin-off 'Hobbs & Shaw' - will return.
Plans remain in place for other movie spin-offs and TV series. But this looks like the end of the main storyline.
The next movie to hit cinemas, 'F9', is the fifth film in the franchise that Lin has directed.
It is set for release May 28, 2021, having been postponed from May of this year.
