We’ve joked about it time and time again: what if Fast and Furious went to space? After all, the action franchise has escalated so far beyond the bounds of its gritty street racing beginnings — the latest films have basically turned them into world class superspies — so why not? Well, after eight films of NOS, bank heists, and sending cars flying out of airplanes, Fast and Furious may finally be going supersonic. Fast and Furious star Ludacris, who has starred in six of the films including the upcoming ninth installment, hints that F9 might be going to…outer space.

And hot damn, it looks like he hasn’t missed a beat getting back in the driver’s seat. Check out the first full F9 trailer below.
