As the stunts and spectacle of the The Fast and the Furious franchise get bigger and better with every film, a lot of fans have wondered if the series might eventually head into space. Series writer Chris Morgan has now said it's a possibility.
When asked by Polygon about the possibility of a film in the franchise heading into the final frontier, Morgan responded, "Nothing’s out of the question. Absolutely nothing. It just has to be cool and it has to be good. You know, that’s the thing.”
Morgan also explained the limits there were on just how outrageous the stunts in the serious could get. "I have one internal regulator on all this stuff,” he said. “I’m a big action guy and a big action fan and I love physics too, by the way. I think the limiter for me is that we will bend to physics and never outright break it-break it. So how do you determine that? Well, for me, while you’re watching the movie and while you’re watching the action sequence, does something happen that’s so physically impossible or absurd that it breaks faith with the audience? That you suddenly can no longer enjoy the movie and you don’t care about the characters because of that breakage”
However, he did add to his answer, saying, "Nothing is off limits as long as we can stay on the right side of keeping the audience engaged.”
Since 2006's The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Morgan has written every movie in the franchise, including the upcoming Hobbs & Shaw spinoff, which he penned with Drew Pearce.
Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba and Vanessa Kirby. The film arrives Aug. 2.
