f you haven’t heard, the Fast and the Furious franchise won’t be returning to theaters until 2020. This came as a shock to many since the original release date was 2019. Well Tyrese wanted to let us know, that The Rock is to blame for the delay. According to Tyrese, the new movies will focus around The Rock’s character, Hobbs.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gibson may be upset that the rumored spinoff movie, that will reportedly star Johnson’s Lucas Hobbs character and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw, is getting fast-tracked ahead of the ninth movie. However, the outlet also notes that the film may have been pushed back in an effort to court director Justin Lin, who may be returning to the franchise. Sadly, it’s unclear at this time as Universal Pictures has not made a statement on the matter other than to push the release date of “F9.”
