Universal Pictures and Vin Diesel have confirmed there will be a ninth and a 10th film in its “Fast and Furious” franchise with release dates in 2019 and 2021.

The news was first unveiled late Tuesday night through Vin Diesel’s Instagram account. Diesel had revealed on Jan. 18 that eighth film would be titled “Fast 8” and released the first poster for the action movie, showing the New York City skyline.

Universal had already staked out April 14, 2017, as the release date for “Fast 8.” Diesel and Universal both said Tuesday that “Fast & Furious 9” will open on April 19,2019, with “Fast & Furious 10” coming April 2, 2021.

Both are the first titles to land on their respective dates. “Fast & Furious 10” is the first title to be given a specific date in 2021.

Plot details have yet to be revealed for “Fast 8” although news broke last month that Universal was exploring shooting the actioner in Cuba. “Straight Outta Compton” director F. Gary Gray is directing and Neil Moritz is producing with Diesel.

“Furious 7,” which was dedicated to the late Paul Walker, was a massive success with worldwide grosses topping $1.5 billion.

The first film in the franchise was titled “The Fast and the Furious” and starred Diesel, Walker, Jordanna Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez with Rob Cohen directing and Moritz producing. The 2001 release carried a budget of $40 million and grossed $145 million domestically and another $62 million internationally.

  3. Amalgamate says:

    my god, please stop making these crappy movies

    • Dave J. says:

      If these movies are crap then why do you feel the need to continue to watch them, idiot!! Did someone put a gun to your head, or is your mom making you watch them as punishment- which is it?

  4. 85wzen says:

    People sure do love these… I wonder why?

  5. Javonna Washington says:

    Yyyhan…Fast and the Furious what???Boring!!! Seven is more than enough. We really need another one? It was fun but, it’s dated, scuffed up and as for Paul Walker…makes a big empty hole in The Fast and the Furious franchise’s future. Kill the franchise!!! Go make something else!!!

    • Dave J. says:

      “Kill the franchise!!! Go make something else” Hey, if you don’t think the series isn’t the same without Paul Walker then don’t watch it then, okay!! No one is forcing you to watch these movies!

    • therealeverton says:

      What do you base this on? The series gets more popular with each film since they restarted in properly with the 4th film. So how is it done? How is it done when they have a story that is half told?

  6. DeVon says:

    I remembered that Paul Walker, wanted to continue until part 10 then retire….unfortunately he passed from the fatal car accident. Even those he can’t be here with his and it’s nice to see more where he didn’t finish it

    • Dave J. says:

      I think the series can be better with or without Paul Walker since he was the only character who had a family, and it’s kind of hard to keep Paul’s character’s family safe along with his family! They can always bring in new characters since they can’t be the only SOBs who drive fast cars!

  7. Wildflower says:

    I look forward to them finíshing the saga…I hope the “family” stays together to the conclusion…
    I wish them the Best of Luck! :)

  8. Jonnythec says:

    No more please!

    • Dave J. says:

      Oh, good!! Another a-hole who’s been forced to watch something he doesn’t even like to watch!! What and who made you watch them in the first place, idiot!

  9. Martin says:

    This is utterly ridiculous.

  10. Murica! says:

    Without Paul Walker there shouldn’t be made any more F&F movies.

    • Dave J. says:

      If that is your opinion then you’re entitled to it, but apparently I think their is more F&F movies yet to be made since they are not the only characters who drive fast cars! And besides, if you don’t want anymore made then you can make it that way by not watching any more, regardless what the reviews are like!

    • therealeverton says:

      I doubt Paul Walker would want the millions of fans to miss out on seeing the story finished and the plot threads he helped build from Fast 4 through to Fast 7 just left unfinished.

      We already had the start of the final trilogy slightly altered to be more of a tribute to Mr. Walker (a nice touch) so it’s good that we’ll get to see the story finished and not left dangling forever. It’ll be good to see where they are going in terms of dealing with that global crime network and the bad guys they’ve stopped who are still around.

  11. therealeverton says:

    There’s some nice symmetry to the 20 year thing.. I look forward to seeing the plots they’ve set up over the past few films coming to a close, but of course it is sad that Paul Walker won’t be there.
