‘Fast and Furious’ franchise to end with 11th film

The central “Fast and Furious” franchise will come to a conclusion after the 10th and 11th films, Variety has confirmed. 

Justin Lin, who directed the third, fourth, fifth, sixth and ninth “Fast and Furious” films, will return to direct the final two installments and drive the franchise to the finish line after over two decades in theaters.

This does not, however, necessarily mean that the “Fast and Furious” cinematic universe is coming to an end. While the core storyline following Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto and his family of fellow car-enthusiasts-turned-thieves-turned-physics-defying-superheroes will conclude after Lin directs the 11th installment, spin-off movies based on “Fast and Furious” characters are currently in development at Universal.

According to Variety, Diesel will return for the new movies along with the core cast of Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel and Sung Kang.

Lin has so far directed four films in the series -- "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" (2006), "Fast Five" (2011), "Fast & Furious 6" (2013) and upcoming "F9".
