Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water.....

A 'Fast and Furious' film with an all-female cast is in the works

Vin Diesel confirms a script is in development for a new spin-off starring some of the women from the franchise

Fast 9 isnít even out yet, and already Vin Diesel is talking about making another Fast and Furious movie ó except this time, thereís a twist.

ĎIíve created a female spin-off,Ē Diesel said in a recent MTV interview. ďAnd that script comes next month, so we will see.Ē

Yes, an all-female Fast and Furious film is happening!

Diesel actually hinted at doing this a few years back, but now there are some real names attached to the production. According to Diesel, Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet are involved with the script.

If you donít know who those people are, you should. Nicole Perlman wrote the script for the fabulous Guardians of the Galaxy, and Beer was a writer for Sierra Burgess Is a Loser. Robertson-Dworet was on the team that wrote the scripts for Captain Marvel, as well as Tomb Raider.

There are plenty of female characters from the franchise that could be featured in the film. Michelle Rodriguez is an obvious one, as well as Jordana Brewster. There are also a few new faces who joined the series more recently that could make an appearance such as Charlize Theron; or Nathalie Emmanuel, who played hacker Ramsay. The cast has at this point not at all been even hinted at, though.

A female spin-off could do well for the franchise; after all, Fast and Furious is one of the only movie series where a spin-off has actually done well for itself, in particular Hobbs and Shaw.

After the ninth Fast film, rumours are there will be a 10th and likely final film, possibly split into two parts, coming in 2021.
