The fate of the Fast and Furious franchise is uncertain. While the once-scrappy street car racing films have turned into globe-trotting action movie phenomenons that rake in billions at the box office, the series may be facing some changes behind the scenes.
Director F. Gary Gray, who took the wheel for Fate of the Furious after Justin Lin and James Wan had ushered the series into blockbuster territory, has expressed reservations about returning to the franchise. This arrives on top of Michelle Rodriguez threatening to leave the series over the treatment of its female characters, casting a shadow over the films — even as stars Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson supposedly put aside their “candy ass” feud. But there’s one silver lining: Gray is not opposed to finally taking Fast and Furious to outer space.
