The Fast & Furious franchise has given the world one of the best drag race thrillers of all time. Despite 8 long years of running, the film’s massive fanbase has only grown bigger. Earlier series star Ludacris had hinted that there would be a scene in Fast & Furious 9 set in space. However, fans did not have anything concrete to go on, until now!
In an interview with SiriusXM, series star Michelle Rodriguez has finally confirmed the next year’s F9 is leaving earth’s atmosphere. “No way! How did you guys find that out?” Rodriguez asks. “Nobody was supposed to know that.”
Responding to the rumors fueled by co-star Ludacris back in July, the actress said “Oh, no way. How did you guys find that out? See what happens? People start talking behind the scenes, man. When a movie doesn’t come out and forget about it, things get out. Nobody was supposed to know that…Oh, well, no, I’m not, I’m not, I’m not lucky enough to hit space, but we did get a female writer and showed a lot of love, I think, on this one. Thanks to…Justin Lin. We were able to, to find a little bit more attention and love for the girls in the movie. And so I’m really hopeful that that, that shows through in the final product.

Michelle Rodriguez had previously said that she would step away from the franchise if it did not show some more love to the women in the cast. Fast & Furious 9 already launched a few trailers giving fans a whole lot to ponder over. With the idea that the franchise already gave its villain superpowers, diving straight into Outerspace is the perfect next step to amp the series.
Meanwhile, the film which was earlier slated for a May 2020 release got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The film will now premiere in theatres on April 2, 2021.
