Fast & Furious 9 star Ludacris has potentially given away that the franchise is about to head into space.
The ninth Fast & Furious movie, ‘F9,’ is either heading to outer space or will see the gang return to a submarine. In a new interview on SiriusXM, Ludacris, who has starred in the film franchise since its first sequel in 2003, appears to spoil the galactic setting.
Co-host Julia Cunningham talked about the franchise saying, “I don’t even know creatively what they could come up with to wow us even though I know they do every time. I’m like, space has to be involved, submarines, I don’t even know. In my mind I can’t imagine what happens in the next movie.”
Ludacris responded, “You just said something very important. I will say that you are very intuitive, cause you said something right, but I’m not going to give it away.” Luda answer making a silly face, as if to indicate that he’s said too much. The rapper/actor then covered his mouth with his hand.
Obviously, this could all be a big wind up, but we’re actually kind of excited about the possibility of seeing the gang potentially hop in a spaceship.
Last year, Fast & Furious screenwriter Chris Morgan admitted that “nothing’s out of the question” when asked whether we could see Dominic Toretto and the gang travel to space one day.
“It just has to be cool and it has to be good,” he explained in an interview with Polygon. “You know, that’s the thing. I would say nothing is off-limits as long as we can stay on the right side of keeping the audience engaged.”
Fast & Furious 9 will be released in April 2021.
