The Fast and Furious franchise is a series that never seems to end. The series currently has two more films in development that will end the story of the main movies but a number of spinoffs are currently in the works. A follow-up to Hobbs and Shaw is currently in development as is an all-female-centered installment. But now Vin Diesel has revealed that there is at least one more spinoff in the works.
According to Variety, a new Fast and Furious spinoff is in development that will focus on Charlize Theorom’s Cipher. The character was first introduced in Fate of the Furious and was revealed to have been behind Owen Shaw’s actions in Fast and Furious 6 which lead to the events of Furious 7. The actress returned to the role for F9 and is expected to return for at least one of its follow-ups. It is currently unknown if Charlize Theron will reprise her role for the spinoff or what kind of film it will be.

Here is the official synopsis for Vin Diesel’s Fast and Furious 9.
Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, this year’s The Suicide Squad).
F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tblisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
Directed Justin Lin from a script written by Daniel Casey, Fast and Furious 9 stars Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Cardi B and Sung Kang, with Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron.
Fast and Furious 9 is now in theaters. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the future of the Fast and Furious franchise and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
