Kin’s Daniel Casey to write Fast And Furious 9

For the first time since the second installment in the action franchise, the Fast and Furious franchise has a new writer. Fast and Furious has tapped writer Daniel Casey to pen the script for the upcoming installment, replacing long-time writer Chris Morgan in the role, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Morgan has been the chief writer of the franchise since The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, the third installment in the franchise, but due to his work on the upcoming spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, focused on Dwayne Johnson (Rampage) and Jason Statham’s (The Meg) characters, he had to relinquish his duties on writing the sequel.

Casey is one of the co-writers behind the upcoming sci-fi thriller Kin, which has been getting positive early attention from audiences following the release of its trailer a few weeks ago. One of his most recent screenplays, The Heavy, has been a major topic of discussion among Hollywood producers for its unique take on the sci-fi genre, and was recently picked up by Paramount Pictures and J.J. Abrams and is set to begin filming sometime later this year.

Fast and Furious 9 is set for an April 10, 2020 release with Justin Lin set to return to directing in the franchise, having directed four prior installments including the third through sixth installments.
