In an Instagram post, Gibson accused his Fate of the Furious (and Furious 7, and Fast & Furious 6, and Fast Five) co-star of making the franchise all about him. "Nah.it's about #TeamDewayne." He also pondered if, after the extended wait, the movie turns out like another "Baywatch", the other summer movie Johnson was in. This is a flagship title for the studio, which makes it all the more curious to hear that the release date for the next instalment - tentatively titled Fast And Furious 9 - has been delayed by a full year. "I'm just a passionate film critic".
Universal is pushing back the release of upcoming action sequel "Fast and Furious 9" one year to Easter weekend on April 10, 2020. And that was on top of comments from Johnson about a solo Hobbs movie from years ago.
It has been rumored that all cast members will be returning to the set of F9 except Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as he has yet to officially sign on. Dwayne The Rock Johnson has not yet been confirmed.
"If you move forward with that #Hobbs Movie you will have purposely ignored the heart to heart moment we had in my sprinter", Gibson wrote in September. Get a job, kids, because I think we might be headed toward a divorce. "It's because we announced and KEPT our release date bro".
With eight, high-octane features in The Fast and the Furious franchise tallying $1.76 billion (adj.) domestically and a stupid $5.13 billion worldwide, clearly Universal is aiming to keep the box office-busting vehicle cruising along.
