Universal Boss Says She Wants an All-Female ‘Fast & Furious’ Movie


  • During a chat with Insider, Donna Langley revealed what she’d love next for the “Fast” franchise.
  • “I would love to see us do a female ‘Fast,'” she said.
  • The cast has voiced their interest in doing a spin-off focused on the female characters.

We might be one step closer to a female-focused “Fast & Furious” movie.

In a recent interview with Insider, the head of Universal Pictures, Donna Langley, hinted at what she’d like to see next from her lucrative franchise.

“I would love to see a female ‘Fast.’ So would Vin [Diesel],” she said. “We have so many great and amazing female characters in our franchise and now there’s the new addition of Brie Larson to add to the incredible roster. I would love to see us do a female ‘Fast.'”

In the upcoming “Fast X,” which will open in 2023, Brie Larson has joined the cast, though it’s still unknown if her Tess character is on the side of Diesel’s Dom character “family” or is a villain.

But the “Captain Marvel” star joins an impressive list of female actors in the franchise that includes Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Charlize Theron, Cardi B, Helen Mirren, and also new to the franchise for the “X” release, legendary “West Side Story” star Rita Moreno.

There have been rumors for a few years about an all-female “Fast” movie being in the works.

In 2019, Diesel wrote in an Instagram post that writers had been hired for a female “Fast.”

Last year, Emmanuel voiced her interest to Entertainment Weekly for a movie focused on the female cast.

“I want a girl spin-off,” she said. “We find a way to bring everybody back, and we make a badass girl ‘Fast’ movie. I’m so here for that. That’s the ‘Fast’ spin-off that I want, that I demand!”

The franchise has also featured Gal Gadot, as well as Vanessa Kirby and Eiza González in the spin-off “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.”
