Universal's President Wants A Female Fast And Furious Film
Donna Langley, chairwoman of Universal Pictures, wants to see a Fast and Furious film with an all-female cast.
Donna Langley, chairwoman of Universal Pictures, wants to see an all-female installment of the Fast and Furious film franchise. "I'd like to see a female Fast. Vin Diesel would, too "Langley told Business Insider in an interview. "We have so many amazing female characters in our franchise, and now we have Brie Larson to add to the incredible roster.
I'd really like to see us do a female Fast." While a Fast film with an all-female cast is possible, the Fast Saga will conclude with the tenth and eleventh films in the franchise. Fast X will be the first of a two-part conclusion to the Fast Saga, which began in 2001 with The Fast and the Furious.
Brie Larson joined the cast of Fast X in April in an unspecified role, joining franchise newcomers Alan Ritchson, Jason Momoa, and Daniela Melchior. Diesel, John Cena, and Charlize Theron are among the returning Fast and Furious cast members. Diesel, who plays Dominic Torretto in the Fast and Furious franchise, announced in February that production on the tenth Fast and Furious film had begun.
"We've got some great new cast members who are going to make this episode really, really, really exciting," he said at the time. Momoa, along with Theron, was confirmed to have joined the cast of Fast X as a villain. John Cena and Cardi B are also expected to return.
Prior to the release of F9 in 2021, the film released promotional material highlighting the women of the Fast and Furious franchise, including interviews with alumni Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez, according to a 2021 interview. After original director Justin Lin left the project in April due to a reported conflict with Diesel, Fast X recently found a new director in Louis Leterrier. Lin directed five Fast and Furious films, including the upcoming F9. "With Universal's support, I have made the difficult decision to step down as director of Fast X, while remaining involved in the project as a producer," Lin said in a statement. "I will be eternally grateful to the incredible cast, crew, and studio for their help and for welcoming me into the Fast family."
