Ludacris teases that 'Fast & Furious 9' will actually go into space

The ninth mainline installment in the Fast and Furious franchise, aptly named F9, could be going to space. Action-packed and fast-moving, the films have long-since earned their spot as a global fan favourite, featuring a cast of Hollywood heavy-hitters including Vin Diesel, The Rock, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Charlize Theron, and more. And for any fans who had feared the series might come to an end after The Fate of the Furious back in 2017 - well, let's just say the story is far from over.

Though Ludacris didn't provide any clear details about what to expect from the film, when the show's co-host Julie Cunningham briefly brought up the idea of the franchise turning its focus skyward and beyond, he responded by saying that Cunningham was "very intuitive" noted that she'd said something "very important" in regards to where Fast 9 goes. Let's face it, the Fast and Furious storylines are pretty wild. What started as an illegal street racing film has since turned into a series involving complex revenge plots, elaborate heists, spies, and worldwide crime - so what's next?

Cunningham told the actor that she believes him to be alluding to space and it was at that point that Ludacris covered up his mouth with his hand. He then said "I don't know what you said", acting as if he hadn't heard Cunningham mention space. Okay, Luda, we see what you're doing here.

The rumor that Fast and Furious would eventually go to space has been going around for ages, at first as a joke, then as a serious possibility. But as recently as a year ago, Morgan seemed warmer to the idea, saying in an interview with THR, "I will say - what's the best way to answer this? - you'll have to wait and see". Even though I know they do every time. The suspense is killer when it comes to whether or not Fast 9 is going to blast off into the great unknown, and as the film is set to make its belated debut on April 2, 2021, we'll have a wait time that's firmly planted between "too long" and "not that long, really" to find out the truth. "In my mind I can't imagine what happens in the next movie". "You know, that's the thing".
