Female Fast & Furious Coming

January 30, 2019 GMT

Vin Diesel and his fellow Fast & Furious producers are developing a female-driven spin-off after Michelle Rodriguez threatened to quit the franchise unless women got more love.

The outspoken Latina, who has played Diesel’s love interest in the franchise films, spoke out following the release of the eighth movie, The Fate of the Furious, insisting she’d walk away if writers didn’t give female characters stronger story lines.

Diesel took her threat seriously and last week revealed he is working on a spin-off movie, surrounding women.
