After years of blockbusters, the Fast and Furious franchise is coming to an end with the upcoming Fast & Furious 10 and 11, and more interestingly Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan seems like the perfect director to resume or reboot the struggling franchise – as weird as that might sound.
It has been more than 20 years since Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto and his family The Fast and the Furious began. Ever since Vin Diesel’s story of Dominic Toretto and his family have taken way too many unexpected turns and is now a superhit global franchise comparable to giants like Marvel Studios and Star Wars. After a long-running tradition of more famous franchises, Fast 10 and 11 is confirmed to be a two-part finale.
Fast and Furious director Justin Li Was Earlier Helming
In the beginning, Fast and Furious director Justin Lin was supposed to helm Fast & Furious 10 and 11. Even Fast & Furious 10, titled Fast X, had already begun its principal photography at the time Justin Linn moved out of the film and its sequel due to many creative differences. Now You See Me and The Incredible Hulk director Louis Leterrier was selected to replace Linn in Fast 10, but we cannot confirm if Leterrier will also direct Fast 11.
Christopher Nolan Is A Fast & Furious Fan
Christopher Nolan has earlier revealed that he is a huge fan of the Fast and Furious films. While appearing in an interview for the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Nolan pointed out the original movie The Fast and the Furious, as his favorite.
Toretto’s Story Ends With Fast 11 (But Fast & Furious Might Continue)
The ending of Fast and Furious, for the sake of the quality of the movies, has been overdue for long, and it is a brilliant thing that Fast 10 and 11 will come with a conclusion to the whole story.
The moment, that being said, arrives at a time when various studios are struggling to launch new franchises, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Universal keeps the Fast and Furious franchise alive after Fast 11, as may be spinoffs, reboots, or a sequel.
Nolan’s Fast & Furious Film Would Be Perfect After Fast 11
Nolan a fan of the Fast movies, but the director also acknowledges the fact how Fast and Furious is simply escalating its action sequences, something that Nolan does often in his movies. Nola knows how to reinvent franchises.
Nolan would manage to keep the action in Fast and Furious while also getting back some realism that has been somewhat seemed lost since Fast Five.
