Fast & Furious: Will 11th movie mark end of the franchise?

This one goes all the way to 11. Deadline does not have many details on these final two installments but says "it seems likely they will tell a big story over two films that will focus on franchise patriarch Vin Diesel and bring back Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel and Sung Kang".

The "Fast & Furious" movies have been the highest-grossing series in Universal Pictures history, grossing $5.89 billion worldwide, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Justin Lin, who has directed five of the nine installments, is now in advanced negotiations to helm the final two chapters, which are expected to return franchise lead Vin Diesel and his all-star supporting cast of Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Sung Kang.

The Fast and Furious franchise has been around for a very long time, with the first film hitting the silver screens in 2001.

It's not clear, however, whether Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will make an appearance in the last two films, since they've peeled away from the main franchise to star in Hobbes & Shaw.

Along with Lin, the majority of "Fast and Furious" directors have also been people of color, including the late John Singleton (2003's "2 Fast 2 Furious"), James Wan ("Furious 7") and F. Gary Gray (2017's "The Fate of the Furious").

The ninth installment in the popular franchise was to release this year but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. He has directed The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, Fast and Furious 6 and Fast 9.

Fast & Furious is officially driving to the finish line.

As the industry continues to struggle with better representation both in front of and behind the camera, the "Fast and Furious" movies proved how easily both can be done and wildly successful.
