EXCLUSIVE: Universal is huddling on a spinoff that will focus on the characters originated by Dwayne Johnsonand Jason Statham and most recently seen in The Fate Of The Furious, sources said. The franchise architects have said they might broaden the universe with spinoffs, and source said this is the one they are pursuing. This is in early stages, but they’ve met on the concept, which sources said will be scripted by Chris Morgan, the chief writer of the series that is hitting new heights with the eighth installment. The idea is for Johnson’s US Diplomatic Security Agent Luke Hobbs to form an unlikely alliance with Statham’s Decker Shaw, for a movie that could conceivably be made while they are figuring the next Fast film.

With how much Fast 8 seem to be dropping from 7 in some market, not a bad idea, just trying to do more of the same but even bigger in a 9 could be hard to pull off.

Dont understand the need for a spin-off, just make they're roles bigger in Fast 9. Vin's story is done and lame ( I know this won't happen)

It could be Dwayne Johnson not wanting to work with Vin at all or some contractual issue in term of control to give Diesel like have him as a producer (probably not easy to just make is role smaller) on a Fast 9 movie, that you get rid of on a spin off.

 

Also those movie tend to be sold before anyone saw them, with most of their money made the first weekend, you can probably not make the change you need only in the actual content of the movie like role size for it to work, how it will be perceived before being seen is really important.

Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham 'Fast and Furious' Spin-Off Gets 2019 Release 

Quote

Just because Universal pushed its next Fast and the Furious chapter back a year doesn’t mean the studio is sitting idle.

 

In fact, it’s just switching gears to focus on the much-buzzed about Fast spin-off that is intended to be a starring vehicle for Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

 

With Fast 9 moved back to 2020, Universal is now officially putting the spin-off on the calender, dating it for a July 26, 2019 opening.
