The Fast and Furious Future Kid Teased Is So Stupid It Might Happen
Michelle Rodriguez wants the kids of the Fast & Furious cast to continue the series. With the family brand of the series, this is sure to happen.
The main cast may be leaving the Fast and the Furious franchise after the upcoming two-part finale, but Michelle Rodriguez has already hinted that the series could keep their children on as new stars. Her idea really fits with the family ethos of the franchise, giving the cast the chance to merge their Fast families with their actual families. No doubt Vin Diesel would approve.
As of now, there are no plans for any spinoffs, although many characters are ripe for starring in their own films. Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw hasn't even been greenlit for a sequel yet. Aside from the Fast X update on Vin Diesel's social media, the future of the franchise is currently pretty opaque.
Fast & Furious 10 & 11 Could Pass The Baton On To The Kids
In a recent interview, Michelle Rodriguez did not discuss Fast X and Fast 11 as the end of the saga, but rather their need to pass the "baton" to someone else, suggesting that the actors' own children could take over. Other blockbuster franchises have done the same, with Carrie Fisher bringing Billie Lourd into Star Wars with a sequel trilogy, and this year Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Love and thunder. Also, since the series turned to family members following Paul Walker's untimely death, it only makes sense for it to do so under more positive circumstances.
In fact, at least one of the children has appeared in the film, with Vin Diesel's son playing a younger version of Dom in F9. Given the prominence of Dom and Letty's son, Brian, and Mia's namesake, Jack, there were roles already fit for the actor's children. It's not hard to imagine Fast & Furious 11 ending with these two descendants of the Toretto dynasty playing with toy cars at a family barbecue, and future movies will focus on them taking on adventures like their father, with a cast led by The child of the current roster.
Why Fast & Furious Will Continue After Fast 10 & 11
As The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift demonstrated, the Fast and the Furious franchise will continue with or without the main cast. However, as The Fast and the Furious: Hobbs & Shaw demonstrated, Dwayne Johnson and other big names are key to any spin-off's financial success. Even if the studio decides to use actors who aren't blood relatives With the current cast, they'll likely use the aforementioned legacy characters to continue the series beyond the eleventh film. A young cast will also give them the benefit of time, allowing the next iteration of the franchise to last longer than this one.
