When Fast X was first announced, many fans believed it would be the conclusion to the Fast and Furious saga.
That was until star Vin Diesel announced that it would come in two parts. Then...at one of the premiere showings of the movie, he said:
"I can say this: going into making this movie, the studio had asked if this could be a two-parter, and after the studio saw this and when they saw part one, they said, 'Could we make Fast X the finale, a trilogy?'"
So, it looked like we were getting Fast 11 and Fast 12 to conclude the franchise. But, Fast X director Louis Leterrier has suggested that might not be the case.
"The one thing about Vin is like when he’s on a press line, he will say anything to get out of that press line," Leterrier joked to TotalFilm.
"And I’m kind of like him and go, 'Yeah, sure, we will go to the moon in the next one. Bye.' And then you never forget!
"Obviously the next one is coming, and then yeah, one movie at a time. I think the one thing that Hollywood keeps reminding us is that it's one step at a time, put one foot forward at a time. Let's count our blessings. We're very lucky this movie was well-received and well-loved, people went to see it in a movie theatre and now they’re going to see it at home. It's one at a time.
"I mean maybe what he was saying is that there’s 25 years of filmmaking and storytelling, three acts, two hours and two movies, between the last one and this one, might not be enough to tell the story that is needed, and that’s what we’re figuring out these days."
Though Fast X received mixed reviews from critics, it was another money-maker for Universal as it earned $719 million at the box office.
At the conclusion of Fast X, the fate of Dom Toretto, his son and his team is unknown after an attack from Dante Reyes, played to acclaim by Jason Momoa.
