Dwayne Johnson Fast and Furious 9

The Candy Ass Saga continues. The bad blood between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Vin Diesel is apparently so palpable that there’s a chance Johnson might be done with the main Fast & Furious franchise. Johnson is currently working on the Fast & Furious spin-off co-starring Jason Statham, but when asked if he might return for Furious 9, Johnson says he’s “not quite sure.”

Rob Cohen interview

Director Rob Cohen has been shooting car chases, explosions, and shootouts for years now. The director behind xXx, The Fast and the Furious, and The Boy Next Door enters new territory with his latest, The Hurricane Heist, which has its shootouts and chases unfold during a category five hurricane that brings brothers, played by Toby Kebbell (A Monster Calls) and Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), together.

It’s an entirely self-aware disaster movie and exactly what a moviegoer would expect from something called The Hurricane Heist, which Cohen takes as a compliment. We recently spoke to Cohen about the challenges of making the effects-heavy film, defying physics, his thoughts on critics, the evolution of the Fast and Furious franchise, and more.

Final Fast and Furious film

Rob Cohen, the filmmaker who launched the Fast and Furious franchise with 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, hasn’t returned to the series since. But the filmmaker isn’t entirely against the idea of coming back again. In a new interview, Cohen claims that when the day comes for a final Fast and Furious film, he’d like to be the one to direct it.

Fast and Furious Spin-Off

Get ready to get fast and furious all over again: that Fast and Furious spin-off with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham is currently in development, and it’s going to deliver some big surprises.

Fast and Furious: Supercharged Details

Universal Studios has unveiled new Fast and Furious: Supercharged details, teasing the Spring 2018 arrival of the new theme park ride at their Universal Orlando Resort. Like most Universal attractions, this one seems to take full advantage of the movie series that is based on, bringing popular characters into the fold and immersing guests in a story where they can feel like an active participant in the action.

And you can get a taste of the action in a new making-of featurette, which arrived alongside a full cast list and details on the overall ride experience.

Fast and Furious drama

Who would have ever thought there’d be more Fast and Furious drama off screen than in all of the franchise’s movies combined? The latest shots fired come from Tyrese Gibson, who recently begged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson not to make a spin-off movie and then flew into an Instagram rage and specifically blamed Johnson when Universal announced Fast 9 was being delayed and the spin-off was indeed happening. Apparently not even franchise paterfamilias Vin Diesel could smooth things over.

It’s clear Tyrese has no love for The Rock at this point, and now he’s posted a video of Johnson shredding Tyrese’s 2015 R&B album Black Rose. But is Johnson just kidding around in this video? Take a look and judge for yourselves, because there’s obviously nothing more important you can be doing with your time than diving into the insane feuding of the stars of one of the world’s most successful movie franchises.

Fast and Furious Spin-Off Feud

It’s been quite a week for fans of the Fast and Furious franchise.

There’s officially a Fast and Furious spin-off in the works that will focus on Dwayne Johnson as Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham as former villain Deckard Shaw. The film is slated to arrive in the spring of 2019 with the possibility of Shane Black directing, but not everyone is happy about this expansion of the Fast and Furious franchise.

Tyrese Gibson took to Instagram (again) this week to complain about Dwayne Johnson’s efforts to veer off from the primary Fast and Furious franchise, claiming that he’s splitting up the “family” they’ve built over the years and that none of the characters should be going solo. Now the patriarch of this makeshift family, Vin Diesel, has basically told everyone to chill out and grow up.

Find out what the actor had to say about this Fast and Furious spin-off feud below. Read More »

The Fate of the Furious jail

The crackling chemistry between Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in Fate of the Furious is finally paying off. The two actors will be getting their own Fast and Furious spin-off centered around their characters, Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and former villain Deckard Shaw (Statham).

All of Universal Pictures’ recent moves — and Tyrese Gibson’s nonsensical Instagram postings — are starting to come together with this news. With Fast and Furious 9 pushed back to 2020, that leaves room for Universal to switch gears to a Hobbs and Shaw spin-off, which will presumably consist of them flexing their rippling muscles through tight T-shirts and fighting off goons with a baby on their arm.

Fast and Furious live tour dates

The Fast and Furious franchise has established itself as a global phenomenon by now, and while the studio (and star Tyrese Gibson) wonder about the next steps to take with the movies themselves, Universal is extending the brand out into an “epic live arena show” so fans can check out the tire-squealing, rubber-burning action in person. Oh, and franchise star Vin Diesel is reprising his role as Dom Toretto in a video for the show, just in case you were wondering just how connected to the movie world this show will be.

Now the first Fast and Furious Live tour dates have finally been announced, and you can check out the first trailer for the experience below.
