After a round of unforeseeable delays, F9 hit theaters this summer, thus shifting gears to wrap up the Fast Saga in the near future. So when will we see Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto and the rest of the massive cast involved for Fast & Furious 10? Good news, we now have an official release date for the next movie, and the finish line is looking closer on the horizon.
It’s been announced that Fast & Furious 10 will hit theaters in a little under two years, with the release date of April 7, 2023, per Entertainment Weekly. It’s not a surprising date considering the 10th Fast film is not scheduled to begin filming until January 2022. Justin Lin is expected to once again helm the movie following his involvement in the franchise since 2009. It sounds like everything is coming together for the Fast Saga as its box office begins to die down at its $681 million worldwide haul.
F9 just finished its ninth weekend in theaters and has been available to stream on at-home digital platforms since late last month. The Fast & Furious movies are unsurprisingly top earners, and 2021 continues this trend. F9 is currently the No. 1-earning Hollywood film of the year and No. 2 on the domestic front (with Black Widow on top). Tenth and eleventh installments for the main Fast film series have been long in the works to complete the saga, and they are expected to shoot back-to-back starting in 2022.
So far, we don’t have a full picture of what the 2023 movie calendar will shape up like, but another Quiet Place movie is expected for a week before Fast & Furious 10 on March 31, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set for May 5, 2023. The latter gives Vin Diesel two major projects in the summer of 2023, as he will also reprise his role as Groot in the Marvel franchise.
If Fast and Furious 10 and 11 do stay on schedule and film back-to-back, it’s possible that the final film of the saga could get a release date in spring 2024. We’ll have to wait and see about the 11th film in the series, but we’re already looking at over 20 years of the Fast and Furious series here! The movies have been greatly defined by Dominic Toretto and the late Paul Walker’s Brian O’Connor, but over the years, the series has continued to welcome more to its cast.
The Suicide Squad star John Cena is the most recent addition to the Fast series as Dominic Toretto’s brother Jakob. Also, F9 reintroduced Sung Kang’s Han after calls for #JusticeForHan by fans of the franchise. We’ll keep you posted on how Fast & Furious 10 filming moves along, but for now, check out what new movies are coming this year with CinemaBlend’s 2021 release schedule.
