Fast and the Furious 11, planned to be the last film in the series, will retain its director from Fast X, Louis Leterrier.
Plans are moving forward what will reportedly be the last installment in the main Fast and the Furious film line, Fast and the Furious 11. With just a month to go until the release of Fast X, Variety is reporting that Louis Leterrier will return to wrap up the series.
Leterrier was not the first director chosen for Fast X. Justin Lin was originally announced as the director, having previously directed The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006), Fast & Furious (2009), Fast Five (2009), Fast & Furious 6 (2013), and F9 (2021). After 10 days of filming on Fast X, he departed the production, but remained attached as a producer. Leterrier was then hired to replace Lin and previously had directed The Transporter and The Incredible Hulk.
Over many missions and against impossible odds, Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his family have outsmarted, out-nerved and outdriven every foe in their path. Now, they confront the most lethal opponent they’ve ever faced: A terrifying threat emerging from the shadows of the past who’s fueled by blood revenge, and who is determined to shatter this family and destroy everything—and everyone—that Dom loves, forever.
In 2011’s Fast Five, Dom and his crew took out nefarious Brazilian drug kingpin Hernan Reyes and decapitated his empire on a bridge in Rio De Janeiro. What they didn’t know was that Reyes’ son, Dante (Aquaman’s Jason Momoa), witnessed it all and has spent the last 12 years masterminding a plan to make Dom pay the ultimate price.
Dante’s plot will scatter Dom’s family from Los Angeles to the catacombs of Rome, from Brazil to London and from Portugal to Antarctica. New allies will be forged and old enemies will resurface. But everything changes when Dom discovers that his own 8-year-old son (Leo Abelo Perry, Black-ish) is the ultimate target of Dante’s vengeance.
Fast X will hit theaters on May 19, 2023. No release date has been announced as of yet for the eleventh film.
