After an explosive 9th episode, Fast and Furious was to return in April 2023 for a 10th opus. In the end, this will not be the case.
We will have to be patient before seeing the fast and furious cars again! After Fast and Furious 9, which garnered 726 million dollars in global revenue, the 10th installment was due to land on April 7, 2023 in the USA and April 5 in France.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures has decided to postpone the release until May 19, 2023 in the United States (and therefore May 17 in France). The studio might prefer to bet on the lucrative Memorial Day weekend in Uncle Sam’s Land.
Fast and Furious 10 will face some serious competition, however. The new version of The Little Mermaid arrives on May 26, and will be followed by the superhero film Shazam 2 on June 2. Will this 10th opus see Dwayne Johnson make his comeback in the franchise? In any case, this is what Vin Diesel wants, who appealed to the comedian on Instagram last November.
“My little brother Dwayne … the time is right. The world is waiting for the Fast 10 finale. The legacy awaits. I told you years ago that I was going to keep my promise to Pablo. [Paul Walker]. I swore that we would give everything and that the finale of Fast and Furious would be the best!
I say this for love … you have to come back, don’t leave the franchise, you have a very important role to play. Hobbs cannot be played by anyone else. I hope you rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny “, he declared.
In the meantime, find Dwayne Johnson vocally as Krypto the Superdog, in theaters on May 18, 2022.
