Vin Diesel says a female-led Fast and Furious spinoff film is in the works

The future is female. Especially if you live in a Fast and Furious-filled universe.

If you were saddened by the fact that the Fast and Furious franchise was coming to an end, we have some good news in store for you.

And, while the epic 12-movie storyline may be near to its end, don't think for a second that means the saga is drawing to a close.

From the mouth of Vin Diesel himself, the future is apparently female.

He had a chat to Variety reporter Mark Malkin over the weekend at the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project Block Party in Los Angeles.

Malkin gleefully revealed that Diesel let slip that there are conversations about making several spinoff films in the Fast universe.

One of those spinoffs will apparently be a female-led installment.

"I started developing the female spinoff…in 2017 with other spinoffs, and the sooner I deliver the finale, the sooner I can launch all the spinoffs," Diesel said, as per Variety.

In another interview with Variety at the Fast X premiere in Rome, Diesel teased the final Fast and Furious story may actually be split into three films instead of two.

"It’s bittersweet to think of a finale," Diesel said, before hinting the film may wind up in three parts.

"Look how many characters and great talent there are in the movie.

"There was no way I could pull that off unless I had everyone on for five seconds.

"These characters are appealing and we need to see more of them."

And, as it turns out, there are some characters we haven't seen.

Like Gal Gadot's mysterious cameo character, which wound up on the cutting room floor.

"We have shot other things a long time ago that might not have fit that specific movie as a finale," Diesel said, as per Variety.

"Doing tags is a very tricky thing because you want your great talent but at the same time you have to be very careful to maintain the emotional state of your audience at the end of the movie.

"So that’s what you’re juggling."

As for his co-star Michelle Rodriguez, who recently came under fire after she criticized Marvel for continually adding films to a long-winded franchise, she isn't sure if she'll sign on to the spin-off films.

"You pass the baton on. You take the back seat," she said, as per Yahoo News.

"You go to the passenger side.

"When it comes to the next generation, you have to. It’s the only way to let them define the future."
