fast and furious

Universal doesn’t want their Fast & Furious franchise to end anytime soon. Fast & Furious 7 made over $1.5 billion dollars at the box office, and even aside from the money, this series shows no signs of slowing down. Director Justin Lin raised the bar with Fast Five, making these movies more popular than ever before. Understandably, Universal wants to keep the brand going outside of the main franchise, and they may plan on doing that with spinoffs.

A new rumor indicates Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) will return for Fast & Furious 8, following her brief post-credits cameo in Fast Five and possibly ahead of her own spinoff film. Learn more about the potential Fast and Furious spinoff after the jump.

Dwayne Johnson in Fast and Furious 8

As of the beginning of April, there hadn’t been any public movement on Fast and Furious 8. However, once CinemaCon rolled around later that month, Universal Pictures got the hype machine started by announcing a release date on April 14th, 2017. And while there’s likely not a complete story developed for the sequel just yet, that hasn’t stopped one of the film’s stars from confirming that he will be back for more action. At a press conference for San Andreas (coming to theaters later this month), Dwayne Johnson revealed that we’ll definitely see him in Fast and Furious 8, and we may still get more Hobbs action in his own movie too.
