Seriously? Could Fast And Furious Be Heading To Outer Space?

Hollywood

Quick! Somebody call Riddick!

If there’s anything we’ve learned from the Fast and Furious franchise it’s that the writers and producers are not afraid to push the limits of reality. There are countless examples throughout the seven films, and later this week the eighth installment, The Fate of the Furious, will premiere. Of course it’ll have plenty of crazy chases, such as one through New York City. But apparently the movie’s writer, Chris Morgan, who wrote every Fast and Furious movie since Tokyo Drift, won’t rule out Dom and crew heading to outer space in a future adventure.

Speaking to Uproxx, Morgan didn’t outright say ‘yes’ to the Final Frontier, but he sure sounded totally open to it. “Look, I get all versions of that question. I get, ‘Are you going to space?,’ and, ‘Please, god, tell me you’re not going to space because you’ll lose me if you do.’” But don’t automatically assume Furious in Space is happening next, or at all.

“The only way I’d go to space is if I had something so good,” Morgan clarified. But then he added this: “What if Dom’s long lost brother, Richard B. Riddick, showed up? Oh my God, I think Dom and Riddick would be so awesome.” All joking aside, Morgan sounds quite reassuring there aren’t any current plans to blast off beyond the atmosphere. “Look, no plans for it right now, so hopefully people will be good with that. But, never say never. If we came up with the perfect thing and it made sense, it will be awesome.” So take Morgan’s comments for what they are, but it’s fair to assume for now things will remain on planet earth. In the meantime, Universal Studios has released a short featurette about the Big Apple chase scene in Fate of the Furious.
