Vin Diesel told the Associated Press that the Fast and Furious storyline would end soon.
During a press conference for the ninth installment of the franchise, F9, Diesel shared that Universal Pictures will end the story in two more films.
“Every story deserves its own ending,” the actor said.
“I know people are going to feel like it doesn’t have to end, but I think all good things should,” he said. “There are reasons for a finale. I think this franchise has deserved it.”
“This franchise was born from the pavement, from the concrete,” Diesel said. “The world just championed this underdog to a place where it has already surpassed all of these other franchises. But the franchise has a soul, and that soul has to rest.”
According to ABC News, the two films could potentially be released in 2023 and 2024. The upcoming installment, — F9 will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
Justin Lin, the director of five of the films, says that he came up with the idea to end the storyline after talking to Diesel.
“We got together, and Vin says, ‘I think we should think about closing up the saga now,” Lin said.
“Nine is kind of the first film of the final chapter,” Lin said. “We’re kind of reconfiguring everything so that the next two movies should wrap up this amazing journey for these characters.”
Lin will direct the final two installments of Fast and Furious.
The film is expected to be a box-office success.
