Johnson, Statham, Theron eyed for 'Fast and Furious' spin-off

The latest release of the "Fast and Furious" franchise's instalment "The Fate of the Furious" was a smash hit. For the other "Fate of the Furious" cast members, they have also expressed their gratitude towards fans who have shown continual support since the franchise began in 2001.

The eighth installment of the "Fast And Furious" theme was tracking to deal $38.7 million in weekend sales in the United States and Canada, according to studio accountants at Universal.

Both Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw were introduced as enemies to Dominic Toretto, a street racing patriarch whose tight-knit group have taken over locales like Rio de Janeiro, London, and Abu Dhabi. No script has been written yet, but both Johnson and Statham showed fantastic chemistry in The Fate of the Furious, so this could actually be good.

Back in the fall of 2015, Fast and Furious franchise star Vin Diesel revealed that he had agreed to star in one last trilogy to end the high speed action saga. The movie was meant to be the first of a final trilogy of films. The Fate of the Furious was originally going to have a post credits scene with The Rock and Jason Statham's characters. It's rumored to be made while they are figuring the next "Fast and Furious" film. Per the report, it depends on Chris Morgan and the availability of the stars.

As of this date, there is still no news if Vin Diesel will be joining Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson in the "The Fate Of The Furious" spinoff.

"And, honestly, we have some big themes and things we're talking about, we're just not there in terms of where exactly we're gonna go yet", he said. Diesel gets to continue and possibly conclude a franchise that helped kick off his career, and Johnson and Statham get to shine in their own series.

Last weekend, Fate of the Furious released to a insane big opening weekend (it beat out Star Wars: The Force Awakens!).
