‘FAST AND FURIOUS 9 DELAY IS A BUMMER’
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.
