Fast X Star Addresses Obvious Han Continuity Error After F9 Credits Scene

Fast X star Sung Kang comments on one major Han continuity error in the film after the F9: The Fast Saga’s post-credits scene. Directed by Louis Leterrier, Fast X serves as the tenth installment in the main Fast & Furious franchise, chronicling Dom’s (Vin Diesel) showdown against Dante (Jason Momoa), a figure from his past. Kang’s Han returns in the film after F9 retconned his earlier death, with the 2021 film also featuring a post-credits scene teasing him coming face-to-face with Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), the man who tried to kill him.

Fast X recreates Han’s meeting with Deckard, but Kang is sporting his character’s signature long hair instead of the short hair he has in the F9 post-credits scene. In a recent interview with Insider, Kang addresses the obvious continuity error, revealing that production did actually ask him to cut his hair so that it would match, but that they ultimately found a different fix. Check out Kang’s full comment below:

“The reason I wanted Han’s hair to be short [in F9] was that he’s in hiding. So if he’s walking around looking like Han it doesn’t really make any sense to the character. You cut his hair, he kind of blends in.
“I realized that there are a few things that people need from Han. They want snacks, they want cool cars, and they want his hair. The hair is almost like a superpower he has… It’s synonymous to what defines Han.
“Because everybody is OCD about their work and they’re into details, details are what matters, there were a lot of notes and discussion about, ‘Hey Han’s hair in the tag is short. How are we gonna do it?’ And we did these tests where you get really close with the tucked-in hair. It could kind of match.”

Fast X’s Place In The Fast & Furious Timeline Explained
Sung Kang as Han in Fast X.

The Fast & Furious timeline has always been a little confusing, which isn’t helped by the franchise’s frequent retconning of events and deaths. Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006), for example, the third feature film in the franchise, actually takes place after the events of Fast & Furious (2009), Fast Five (2011), and Fast & Furious 6 (2013). The 2013 entry also includes a post-credits scene introducing Statham’s Shaw in which he is made responsible for Han’s apparent death in Tokyo Drift.

From there, the movies essentially play out in chronological order. Interestingly, however, Fast X takes place roughly four years after the events of F9. This means that Han’s post-credits scene in which he confronts Shaw is more temporally disconnected from that film’s narrative as many may have realized. To maintain continuity, then, Han should have had short hair for all of Fast X.

Despite the production’s best efforts, Han’s hair still sticks out as a fairly obvious continuity error. That being said, the Fast & Furious franchise plays so fast and loose with its timeline, character evolutions, and deaths that one haircut isn’t really that big of a deal. While Han’s reunion with Shaw in Fast X wasn’t the “Justice for Han” moment that some viewers may have hoped for, Kang is evidently committed to ensuring that his take on the character is as satisfying for fans as possible.

10 Fast & Furious Moments That Prove Han Is The Fast Saga’s Best Character

Summary

Han’s appearance in Tokyo Drift made him a beloved fan favorite, leading to a reworked Fast & Furious timeline.
Sung Kang’s portrayal of Han strikes a perfect balance of humor and heart in the franchise.
Some of his best moments include fight scenes, unexpected team-ups, and heartfelt reunions with his Fast family.

The Fast & Furious franchise has introduced a lot of beloved characters over its 11-movie run, but Han is the series’ greatest addition. His appearance in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift made him an instant fan favorite, so much so that the franchise altered the entire Fast & Furious timeline for his character. To have Han reappear in the franchise, Tokyo Drift was retroactively turned into a sequel that takes place after the events of Furious 6. Even after that, the series found inventive ways to bring him back.

Justin Lin’s 2002 film
Better Luck Tomorrow
is considered an unofficial origin story for Han.

It’s no wonder why Han became such a fan favorite. Sung Kang’s performance as Han Lue (aka Han Seoul-Oh) strikes the perfect balance of humor and heart that the Fast franchise is known for. Maybe even more importantly, he manages to remain effortlessly cool even in the face of danger, whether he’s facing off against the Tokyo Yakuza or getting into a fistfight on top of a moving car. Although Han’s role in the series is limited compared to some of the other characters, he’s made a massive impact on the story and has countless iconic moments.

10 Motorcycle vs. Tank Chase
Fast & Furious 6

Fast & Furious 6 is full of great action set pieces. During the chase scene on the Spanish military base, Dom’s crew is given the impossible task of stopping Shaw’s team from getting away with the Nightshade device, which they’re transporting across a highway in a massive tank. Han and Gisele speed off on motorcycles to try and stop the transport, but when Gisele is nearly crushed against the side of an oncoming truck, Han is forced to literally leap into action. He jumps from his motorcycle into the speeding car and grabs the wheel just in time to save Gisele.

This diversion also gives Gisele enough time to pull a gun on Shaw’s henchman, allowing her and Han to take control of the car. Although Gisele and Han may have seemed like an unlikely pairing when they were first introduced as teammates, scenes like this prove how well they work together and how much love and trust is shared between them. Hopefully, this dynamic will be explored even more after the reveal that Gisele is alive in Fast X.

9 Rescuing Elle and Project Aries
F9

Family is one of the biggest themes in the Fast franchise. Dom’s team operates as a family, which makes it even more impactful that while Han was forced to stay away from one family for years, he found someone else to care for. It’s revealed in F9 that Han was recruited by Mr. Nobody in Tokyo. He was assigned to recover a device called Project Aries, but after the scientists who created the project were killed and Han learned that the key to unlocking the device was their daughter, Elle, he took it upon himself to protect and raise her.

The scene where Han rescues Elle isn’t just a cool showcase for his fighting skills. It also demonstrates what makes Han so special as a character. He cares deeply about people and is willing to risk himself to keep others safe. Knowing that he remained in hiding for years not just for his own safety, but to protect his adopted daughter completely recontextualizes his absence from the previous movies.

8 Standoff in Hong Kong
Fast & Furious 6

It’s almost a running joke in the series that Gisele and Han will travel anywhere in the world together except for Tokyo, because viewers know that Tokyo is where Han supposedly died. At the start of Fast & Furious 6, the couple is enjoying a date night in a Hong Kong marketplace. Their heartfelt discussion about settling down together quickly gets off track when the police arrive. Although the police are only trying to pass along a call from Dom, Han and Gisele instinctively engage in a well-coordinated standoff, which is one of the coolest scenes in the movie.

Not only does this moment provide a great bit of fight choreography, but it perfectly illustrates the dynamic between Han and Gisele. They’re family who always have each other’s backs, especially in the face of danger. The scene also emphasizes Han’s desire to settle down with Gisele, which makes her fate at the end of the movie even more tragic.

7 Han’s “Death” in Tokyo
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

Although The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift is considered an outlier in the franchise because it doesn’t feature Brian or Dom (except for a brief appearance in the end credits sequence), Han’s death in the movie ended up being one of the most impactful moments in the series. Han’s death deeply affects Sean and leads him to challenge Takashi to a dangerous race in the mountains leading to the film’s climax. In the grand scheme of the franchise, Han’s Tokyo Drift death also sets up Shaw’s involvement in the series and lays the groundwork for Mr. Nobody and Project Aries.

But setting aside those impacts, Han’s crash is simply a heartwrenching scene. Even with a limited amount of screentime in Tokyo Drift, Han was instantly loveable, and it hurts to see such a dynamic character die painfully – even if, in hindsight, viewers know that he doesn’t really die. If Han hadn’t been such a fan favorite in the film, viewers wouldn’t have demanded him to return, and the franchise would look completely different than it does today.

6 Driving into the Sunset With Gisele
Fast Five

Most viewers don’t instantly consider romance when they think of the Fast & Furious franchise, but the series has delivered some genuinely sweet and touching love stories during its run. Han’s romance with Gisele is secretly one of the biggest driving forces behind his character. Their scene at the end of Fast Five features some incredibly unsafe driving practices, but it’s also a tender moment between two typically guarded characters.

Instead of spending their heist earnings on gambling or parties like some of the other characters do, they choose to use their money to travel the world together. The scene is a reminder of how the Fast franchise is, at its heart, a story about the different forms that family can take. Watching these two characters drive off into the sunset is a perfect note to end the film on.

5 Reuniting With the Family
F9

Han’s return to the franchise was emotional. There were eight years between his last on-screen appearance in Furious 6 and his long-awaited return in F9, so the scene had big expectations to live up to. While the characters had been through a lot since they’d last seen their friend, they clearly hadn’t forgotten about Han, leading to one of the most touching and cathartic moments in the franchise.

Tej and Roman’s stunned reactions to Han’s reappearance are both funny and heartfelt, and his hug with Dom shows a softer side to both of the characters. Even Ramsey, who had never met Han at that point, reacts in a way that made it clear she’d been told about how important he was. These emotional reactions emphasize Han’s importance to the family and how much he had been missed by the characters – and by the franchise overall.

4 Teaming Up With Shaw
Fast X

The #JusticeForHan movement was launched after Shaw, who was thought to have killed Han, was accepted as a member of Dom’s family – or at the very least, an ally to the crew. Even after learning that Han didn’t really die in the crash, fans had conflicting feelings about someone who was thought to have murdered a beloved character being forgiven so easily. With all of that in mind, the eventual confrontation between Shaw and Han was already primed to be dramatic, and Fast X delivered with an incredible fight scene.

The Fast X cast on a Fast X poster Related Who Is In Fast X? Cast & Character Guide Fast X sees Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodgriguez return as fan favorite characters, Dominic Toretto and Letty Ortiz. But who else is in the cast?

Although Han doesn’t have any hard feelings, Shaw automatically assumes that Han is there for revenge. This leads to a quick and brutal brawl, and Han’s hilarious line “You ruined my snacks” after Shaw knocks a bag of chips out of his hand. However, their fight is interrupted as Agency members swarm Shaw’s warehouse, and they’re forced to team up to defeat the bigger threat. Through this experience, they overcome their past issues and develop a sense of trust for each other, which becomes crucial later in the movie. The fight scene is thrilling and explains why the characters’ relationship evolves so quickly.

3 The Subway Fight Scene
Fast & Furious 6

It’s rare to see a hero lose a fight in the Fast franchise, which makes the subway fight in Furious 6 even more of a standout moment. Although in the past, Han has shown that he has some impressive fighting skills, he and Roman quickly realize that they’re no match for Owen’s henchman. Although the fight is 2-against-1, Han and Roman end up getting badly beaten. Even their attempts at teamwork backfire when Roman accidentally misaims a punch and knocks Han out momentarily.

It’s one of the most realistic moments in the franchise, which has shown much more improbable fights go off without a hitch. The scene is a hilarious and rare example of a fight gone wrong and proves that the characters of the Fast franchise can still be heroic without winning every single fight.

2 Teaching Sean To Drift
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

Han’s friendship with Sean in Tokyo Drift perfectly encapsulates what makes him such a great character. After Sean asks Han why he trusted an inexperienced racer with his expensive car, Han responds, “I have money. It’s trust and character that I need around me.” This sums up Han’s entire outlook on life and sets the basis for him helping Sean become a part of the Tokyo racing scene, eventually connecting him to Dom and the rest of the family.

The training scene highlights what makes their friendship so great. Han’s annoyance and enthusiasm as Sean slowly picks up the basics of drifting is both funny and touching, striking that balance that the Fast franchise does so well. The sequence also establishes why Han’s later death hits Sean so hard and motivates him to participate in the final race of the film.

1 Han’s Snack Obsession
Every Fast & Furious Movie

The most iconic aspect of Han’s character has to be his constant snacking. It’s a charming quirk that has come to be synonymous with him over the course of the franchise, similar to Dom’s love of Corona. Han always has a bag of chips in hand, whether he’s planning a heist or about to get into a fight. Even when he reunites with the family in F9, he arrives holding a snack. Gisele comments on this habit, guessing that it’s because he needs to keep his hands busy after quitting smoking.

Although there’s never any real explanation for Han’s love of snacks, it’s a subtle mannerism that adds a real lived-in quality to the character. As the Fast & Furious franchise grows and continues to introduce increasingly quirky characters into its cast, Han’s obsession with chips still has yet to be beat.

10 Funniest Scenes In The Fast & Furious Franchise, Ranked

This list contains some foul language.

Summary

The first few
Fast & Furious
movies establish key character dynamics with funny moments.
The
Fast Saga’s
over-the-top action scenes lead to humorous reactions from the cast.
The franchise balances humor with implausible action, creating enjoyable entertainment.

As the stunts get more ridiculous and the supporting cast expands, the Fast & Furious franchise gets more funny scenes from the impossibility of the action and a wider variety of character dynamics. However, some of the Fast Saga’s funniest scenes are from the first few movies, when relationships that will be important throughout the franchise are established. Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) have a friendly but competitive relationship from the beginning that creates many funny moments.

Likewise, Brian’s friendship with Roman (Tyrese Gibson) has a comedic streak, as well as Roman’s interactions with Tej (Ludacris) in the later movies. On the other hand, some of the car stunts and exchanges during the action sequences are so ridiculous that there is no option left but to laugh out loud. What the Fast Saga lacks in realism it makes up for in enjoyable entertainment, and the characters’ amusing reactions to the dangerous situations they find themselves in are a huge part of this.

Movie Release Date The Fast and the Furious 2001 2 Fast 2 Furious 2003 The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 2006 Fast & Furious 2009 Fast Five 2011 Fast & Furious 6 2013 Furious 7 2015 The Fate of the Furious 2017 Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 2019 F9 2021 Fast X 2023

10 Roman & Han Loose The Subway Fight
Fast & Furious 6

While they are chasing after Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Roman and Han (Sung Kang) get into a fight with Jah (Joe Taslim), another member of Owen Shaw’s (Luke Evans) team, who overpowers them both. It seems like just another hand-to-hand combat scene characteristic of the franchise. However, midway through the fight, it is clear that Roman and Han are both getting tired.

In an easy-to-miss moment, they are both lightly pushing each other forward to take another shot at the guy. When their opponent finally runs off, Roman tells Han: “No one needs to know about this. No one.” Han breathlessly nods. It is not the cleverest or most outrageous bit of humor in the franchise, but it is a good way to break up the monotony of action scenes that are all very similar. This is especially true when most of Dom’s family seem to be experts who never lose a fistfight.

9 Hobbs & Shaw Trash Talk
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Johnson and Statham’s acting is what makes the comments in this scene work, as they are both completely deadpan, no matter how immature they sound.

The entire premise of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is based around Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Shaw (Jason Statham) being forced to work together, resulting in more than two hours of insulting banter. It becomes stale after a while, which is why one of their best scenes is when they are initially paired up. Hobbs and Shaw have some moments of mocking each other in The Fate of the Furious, but in the first “trash-talking” scene of their spinoff, they indulge in a barrage of completely over-the-top insults.

Johnson and Statham’s acting is what makes the comments in this scene work, as they are both completely deadpan, no matter how immature they sound. Their dynamic is also likely why the Fast & Furious producers realized a spinoff about these two characters would work in the first place. Even though most of their conversations are completely juvenile, Hobbs and Shaw’s relationship creates many funny, fan-favorite moments.

8 Brian & Roman Argue About Monica
2 Fast 2 Furious

Later in the franchise, most of Roman’s jokes and quippy interactions are with Tej, while Brian’s screen time is taken up by his relationships with Mia (Jordana Brewster) and Dom. However, in 2 Fast 2 Furious, Roman’s first movie in the franchise and Brian’s only one without the Toretto family, Brian and Roman’s dynamic is one of the most important parts of the plot. As friends who have known each other since high school, they constantly make fun of one another for the audience’s amusement.

In 2 Fast 2 Furious, the pair work with Monica (Eva Mendes), an undercover U.S. Customs Service agent, to arrest a drug lord. Brian and Roman have a funny back-and-forth arguing over whether Brian was “checking her [Monica] out,” with a cut that suggests the argument has gone on for a while before Brian admits to it and tells Roman to shut up. The joke would have aged better if Monica had a larger role in the franchise, but it at least defines Brian and Roman’s relationship.

Related 8 Reasons Fast X Was Way Worse Than Fast Five (Despite Trying To Copy It) Fast X was full of callbacks to Fast Five, but the latest Fast and Furious movie wasn’t nearly as good as the saga’s fifth installment.

7 Roman & Tej Get The Same Car
Fast Five

Roman and Tej both return after 2 Fast 2 Furious when Dom, Brian, and Mia recruit them for a high-stakes heist in Fast Five. This is when Roman’s interactions with Brian are largely replaced by those with Tej. At one point in the movie, when the team is discussing what they will do with their share of the money, Tej says he wants to open his own garage. Roman scoffs at this, as he plans to go on a spending spree.

In Fast Five’s ending, Roman comes to Tej’s garage to brag about his new car, claiming that “there are only four of those cars in the whole world,” and he owns the “only one in the Western Hemisphere.” However, Tej rips the rug out from under Roman when a pair of women drive up in the same car, which belongs to Tej. In the first Fast & Furious movie where there is a big focus on Roman and Tej’s friendship, this is an entertaining way to demonstrate the lengths they will go to in order to one up each other.

6 Roman’s Orange Lamborghini
The Fate Of The Furious

A huge joke among the whole cast in The Fate of the Furious is over Roman’s love for a bright orange Lamborghini. Roman spots the car in the FBI’s garage and argues that he could use it for the mission because of “reverse psychology. Dom will never see it coming.” Little Nobody (Scott Eastwood) hilariously snaps back: “It’s neon orange. The International Space Station will see it coming.” However, Roman gets his wish later when Little Nobody says they can take whatever car they want for the final chase.

The reason the joke is great is that it gets even more mileage during this final chase, where Letty makes fun of Roman when the car spins out of control on the ice. When Roman demands to know why everyone is shooting at him, Tej blames the car as well. This is before the Lamborghini is lost to the icy waters, bringing one of Roman’s best recurring jokes to a tragic end.

5 Brian “Almost Had” Dom
The Fast And The Furious

Brian and Dom’s friendly rivalry is established the first time they race. Brian loses (of course), but their exchange afterward is less expected and amusing. Despite losing, Brian is hilariously grinning ear to ear, confusing everyone around him. When Dom asks why he is smiling, Brian proudly responds: “I almost had you.” Everyone there either laughs or cheers. It is a small moment of trope subversion because people would expect Brian to be frustrated after losing.

However, it also establishes a long-running joke in the series of Brian’s determination to beat Dom in a race. It leads to another funny moment in Fast Five where a casual bet leads to an impromptu race, in which Dom lets Brian win, so the extra money will go to Brian and Mia’s unborn child. Brian is once again thrilled until the others inform him that it isn’t real. Therefore, this comedic moment in the first movie helps establish one of the franchise’s best recurring gags and best relationships.

4 Roman Isn’t In Interpol’s Top 10 Most Wanted
The Fate Of The Furious

Another humorous moment surrounding Roman in Fate of the Furious is his disappointment at not making Interpol’s list of the top 10 most wanted people in the world. Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) informs the main crew that they have all made the top 10 list, except for Roman, who came in at number 11. Roman is infuriated by this when Letty, Hobbs, Tej, and Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel) all rank above him.

Roman’s general anger about the situation is funny, but the beat comes back at the perfect moment during the final fight. After taking down the people shooting at him, Roman pauses for a second, before saying: “Number 11 my a**.” It is a good bit of internally referential humor that is not overplayed because Roman is the only person who hears himself say this. It is also a good way to bring comedy to the increasing stakes of the Fast Saga, where the main cast are international criminals who are always wanted for something or other.

3 “Cars Don’t Fly”
Furious 7

Dom jumping between skyscrapers is hands down, one of the most ridiculous scenes in the Fast Saga. It is also the moment that best captures how out of control the series has become, rivaled only by Roman and Tej going into space. However, the comedy of the skyscraper car jump moment combines with the impossible stunt for a laugh-out-loud effect — whether it is because of the dialogue or how ludicrous the whole thing is.

Brian is (mostly) used to Dom’s stunts by now, but he is still screaming that “cars don’t fly” at Dom right before they take off. The writers set this comment up earlier in the movie when Brian says the same thing to his son, after the toddler throws a toy car. It’s even funnier in the context of Brian’s boat jump in 2 Fast 2 Furious, which freaked out Roman at the time.

2 Shaw Takes Care Of The Baby (While Fighting)
The Fate Of The Furious

Dom’s family forgives Deckard Shaw remarkably fast, making him a new family member in record time in Fate of the Furious. If anything cements this newfound trust, it is Dekcard and his brother teaming up to save Dom’s infant son from Cipher (Charlize Theron) at the end of the movie. Oddly, Shaw saving the baby from the plane is also one of the funniest scenes in the Fast Saga.

While fighting his way through Cipher’s men, Shaw occasionally takes breaks to check on the baby, who is happily listening to music, thanks to Shaw positioning headphones on him before starting. The cute comments and the baby’s perfect reactions contrasting with the action are hilarious. This scene proves that humor is the best way to redeem a Fast & Furious villain — there are likely going to be some funny and awkward interactions every time they ally with a former enemy anyway.

A custom image of Tej, Han, and Roman from Fast and Furious Related 10 Best Fast & Furious Characters That Didn’t Appear In The First Movie The Fast and the Furious may have kicked off the Fast Saga, but some of the franchise’s best characters were only introduced later down the road.

1 Hobbs Breaks His Cast & Arrives At The Fight
Furious 7

As ridiculous as it is (probably the most ridiculous scene of the franchise that doesn’t involve a car), Hobbs is completely straight-faced when he breaks his own arm cast.

The Rock always brings over-the-top energy to the Fast Saga as Hobbs, resulting in some scenes where his muscleman persona is so outrageous it becomes comedic, due to his ability to seamlessly blend action and humor. As ridiculous as it is (probably the most ridiculous scene of the franchise that doesn’t involve a car), Hobbs is completely straight-faced when he breaks his own arm cast. He is just as sincere when he tells Letty: “I am the cavalry.”

As the action becomes more implausible in the Fast & Furious franchise, the only way to keep the tone balanced is for the characters to be cavalier about their circumstances and constantly make jokes about them. Johnson is one of the best actors to do this, which is why Hobbs’ return in Fast X is a good thing. He and the rest of the cast will doubtlessly continue to play hilarious moments in Fast 11 and beyond.

Fast 11’s Training For Action Scenes Teased In Vin Diesel’s Filming Update

Summary

Vin Diesel shares in a social media post that he just had a pre-production meeting for
Fast & Furious 11
.
The actor teases that preparation for the movie’s driving sequences is underway, and that they’re going to be ”
intense
.”

Fast X
director Louis Leterrier will return to helm the upcoming sequel, suggesting it will be closer in tone to that movie than
F9
.

Fast & Furious 11 gets an update from franchise star Vin Diesel, who teases the “intense” driving sequences to come. After first getting its start back in 2001, the popular action franchise returned last year with Fast X, the first of a multi-part finale. Although there remains some question about whether there will be a twelfth installment (in addition to the planned Fast & Furious Hobbs spinoff), the eleventh movie is moving forward with returning director Louis Leterrier at the helm

In a recent Instagram post, Diesel shares a Fast & Furious 11 status update, revealing that preparation work for the movie’s driving sequences has already begun.

Diesel films himself having just emerged from a productive meeting for the film, and he teases some of what audiences can expect from the upcoming sequel. Check out his comment below:

“Today, long before we start filming principal photography, we’ve gotta work out so many logistics. And because the driving sequences are going to be so intense in this next chapter we have to start working out the stunt driving sequences early. I’ve got to practice to make sure that it’s as safe as possible while simultaneously being as intense as possible, as intense as you all want it to be.”

Related 10 Most Exciting Things To Expect From Fast 11 Fast & Furious 11 will pull all the strings to become bigger than the previous installments, and here is why the film is worth being excited about.

Will Fast & Furious 11 Feature More Grounded Action Sequences?
What Fast X Teases About The Next Movie

Although Diesel is hyping up Fast & Furious 11’s driving sequences, recent installments in the franchise have featured less practical car action and more CGI as the sequences become increasingly outlandish. There’s certainly something to be said for this type of bombastic and ridiculous action (Fast X’s audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is a strong 84%), but there’s no denying that it’s a far cry from the grounded driving sequences featured in earlier movies. During the Fast X ending, for example, Diesel drives his muscle car down the side of a dam.

While Fast X still featured some over-the-top action sequences, it must be said that the film does tone things down somewhat compared to F9. In F9, the franchise leaned into sci-fi, with Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and Tej (Ludacris) actually getting launched into outer space in a Pontiac Fiero. With Leterrier returning as director for Fast & Furious 11, it’s possible that the upcoming movie will be closer in tone to Fast X than F9.

It’s unclear just how much the next movie will rely on CGI for its action sequences, but Diesel’s update does confirm that the film will feature real stunts and practical driving to some extent. Since Fast & Furious 11 could end up being the final film, it would be fitting to return to grounded action akin to some of the franchise’s earlier movies. Many questions remain about the next movie in Diesel’s hit franchise, but work is evidently now underway behind-the-scenes to bring it life.
