Fast & Furious female-led spin-off lands Marvel writers
As the Fast & Furious franchise continues to expand fast and furiously, the female-fronted Fast & Furious spinoff — one of three spinoffs in development — is welcoming some new members to their family. Series staple Vin Diesel announced a trio of new screenwriters who are tackling the project on his Instagram last night (via Comic Book).
“As you know, there are three new spin offs [sic] that We have promised Universal… well this week we heard a pitch for the Fast female protagonist driven spinoff I created in 2017, and you can tell by the smile on Samantha’s face it was VERY exciting. Shout out to Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer, Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Welcome to the Fast FAMILY,” he wrote in the post.
The three new writers listed by Diesel who will work on the upcoming spin-off have worked on some of Marvel’s big-budget adventures, which includes Nicole Perlman (Captain Marvel, Black Widow), Lindsey Beer (Silver Sable), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel, Silver Sable). The film will be directed by David Leitch (John Wick, Deadpool 2).
The franchise is also working on Hobbs and Shaw, focusing on the characters portrayed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham, which is filming now. The film will be directed by David Leitch (John Wick, Deadpool 2).
