Even if the Fast and Furious franchise is ending, Vin Diesel isn’t done with Dominic Toretto. Vin Diesel, who starred in F9, appears to be on board with a prequel that explores Dominic Toretto’s mysterious early years. While he remains tight-lipped on whether or not a prequel project will be approved, the action actor refuses to rule out the possibility of Dom’s escapades continuing beyond the Fast and Furious franchise.
Dom Toretto asked about a possible prequel, Vin Diesel teased
As Diesel just stated, the Fast and Furious series will eventually close with the eleventh, yes eleventh, a film in the franchise. “Every narrative deserves its ending,” the actor said of the remaining two films in the series, which might be produced in 2023 and 2024.
Despite this, it has already been revealed that the franchise will continue in the form of spin-offs, with a sequel to 2019’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw in the works, as well as an untitled female-led film written by Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
For the time being, Dom is reconciling with his beloved family in preparation for F9, which picks up after The Fate of the Furious. Dominic Toretto and his family are forced to confront Dom’s younger brother Jakob. This dangerous assassin collaborates with their old foe Cipher and has a particular grudge against Dominic.
Justin Lin, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Daniel Casey, directs the ninth instalment. Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, John Cena, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Michael Rooker, Helen Mirren, Kurt Russell, and Charlize Theron return to the supporting cast.
Dom’s life has altered dramatically since the first film in the long-running action franchise, The Fast and the Furious, in 2001. Dom started out as a racer who stole a few DVD players on the side, but now he works for the government and pulls off numerous Mission: Impossible-style missions, as well as having a master assassin for a brother. In an attempt to bridge this gap, a Dominic Toretto prequel would undoubtedly have a lot to discuss.
With the last few Fast and Furious films grossing over a billion dollars at the box office, audiences are clearly still enamoured with the mindless thrills and explosive action, making a Dominic Toretto prequel a distinct possibility, especially since F9 introduced us to flashbacks from his childhood and explored the character’s backstory more than has ever been done before.
F9 was supposed to be released internationally in April 2019, however it has been postponed multiple times due to the current global scenario. F9 will be published in the United States on June 25, 2021, after being released in a number of other regions, including Hong Kong and South Korea, earlier this year. So far, the film has earned more than $270 million worldwide, making it the fourth highest-grossing picture of 2021. Vulture has provided us with this information.
