Ac­tor Jor­dana Brew­ster is de­jected at the de­layed re­lease of the next in­stall­ment of the Fast and Fu­ri­ous fran­chise. The 37-year-old star, who plays Mia Toretto in the film fran­chise, how­ever, says she hopes the mak­ers will use the time lag to their ad­van­tage, re­ports E! News.

“It’s a bummer. But, on the other hand, that gives ev­ery­one a lit­tle more time to ru­mi­nate and make it bet­ter, so that’s good,” says Brew­ster.

The ninth chap­ter was orig­i­nally sched­uled to open on April 19, 2019 but will now re­lease on April 10, 2020.

The fran­chise also stars Michelle Ro­driguez, Chris ‘Lu­dacris’ Bridges, Nathalie Em­manuel, Scott East­wood, Kurt Rus­sell, and Char­l­ize Theron.

The an­nounce­ment came in after Brew­ster’s co-star Tyrese Gib­son ac­cused Dwayne John­son of “fly­ing solo” by creat­ing a spin-off from the fran­chise, which led to the re­lease date of Fast and Fu­ri­ous 9 be­ing pushed back. How­ever, Vin Diesel de­fended John­son, say­ing the re­lease date be­ing post­poned is no one’s fault.

The Fast and Fu­ri­ous spinoff, also fea­tur­ing Ja­son Statham, is slated for a 2019 re­lease.
