Justin Lin signs on for final two Fast and Furious movies

October 21st, 2020 by Marc Comments

We already knew an ending was in sight for the Fast and Furious saga, but now we know when and have some cool details on it.

The franchise is currently at its ninth installment which was originally set to appear in cinemas in April past but is now set for next year and it seems there are two more movies in the core franchise coming.

And the best part? Justice Lin, who made the franchise into one of the world’s biggest action franchises having directed the third, fourth, fifth, sixth and ninth movies, has signed on to direct the final two movies – as a big fan of the series I think this is superb news.

But don’t despair fans, we already have the Hobbs and Shaw spinoffs happening and we know that there is a couple of other series in the works. Oh, and there’s an animated series on Netflix.

Two more movies coming plus spin-offs? I’m happy enough… though saying goodbye to Dom and the gang will be a bit of a tough one.

What say you all? Is this bad news? Good? Or have you stopped caring already? Let me know your thoughts, gang…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
