Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

The Rock and Jason Statham may not be in F9: The Fast Saga, but Justin Lin isn’t counting them out for part 10 yet. Lin spoke with Cinema Blend for a new interview and was asked about the possibility of the The Rock, who branched off into his and Statham’s own spinoff franchise with Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, coming back for the tenth film.

Lin mentioned that they’re always thinking of where the characters who are missing are, noting that Vin Diesel has a character connections board showing how everyone is connected to each other. He went on to say, “I think that’s always been our approach … so many of the conversations I have is about characters that are not even in there. But it’s still, obviously they are living and breathing in this universe. So on this one, when I came back, I was thinking a lot about Hobbs and Shaw, and all of the other characters. So I never think of them as being gone, for sure.”

Rock had some off-screen issues with both Diesel and Tyrese Gibson, the latter over the Hobbs & Shaw spinoff splitting the franchise, but he has since publicly made up with both actors.

F9: The Fast Saga opens in theaters in the US on June 25th.
