The Condition for the Fast & Furious Spin-off

In 2017, a rift formed within the Fast Family when Johnson and Diesel decided to part ways. This division led to actors choosing sides, with Jason Statham aligning with Johnson for the 2019 spin-off movie, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. This move further divided the actors.

However, recent reports suggest that the feud between Johnson and Diesel has been resolved. Following this news, Johnson quickly announced a new spin-off in the Fast & Furious franchise, featuring him and Jason Momoa as Dante Reyes.

This time, Johnson agreed to Diesel’s condition that the spin-off should be connected to the main universe.

Johnson has assured Diesel that the spin-off will serve as a bridge between the recently released Fast X and the upcoming Fast 11, thereby maintaining continuity within the franchise.
