Jason Momoa hints at possible delay for Fast & Furious 11

Jason Momoa suggests fans will have to wait for the next Fast & Furious movie.

As the highly successful Fast & Furious franchise heads towards its potential conclusion with its eleventh installment, star Jason Momoa has recently given some insight into the future of the series. Momoa, known for his portrayal of antagonist Dante Reyes in Fast X, shared his thoughts on the upcoming movie during an interview with Variety.

Momoa's character, Reyes, brought a fresh and formidable adversary to the franchise's lineup of villains. His dynamic presence and unique flair were hailed as one of the highlights of the film. While there has been uncertainty surrounding Momoa's return for the final installment, he hints that his character may still have a role to play. In the interview, he stated, 'I put out my ideas, and we'll see where it goes. But that's probably a ways off. That'll be fun to do. It's fun playing the villain. It's wonderful to play the villain.'

However, the production of Fast & Furious 11 seems to be facing some obstacles. Reports suggest that a new script draft may be needed, potentially impacting the proposed April 2025 release date. The uncertainty surrounding the script revision and its implications has led to speculation that fans should prepare for yet another delay in the franchise's timeline.

The departure of long-time franchise director Justin Lin in Fast X paved the way for director Louis Leterrier to take the helm. Leterrier has teased a significant character evolution for Dante in Fast & Furious 11, leaving fans wondering how Momoa's role may be reshaped or even eliminated.

On top of the uncertainties surrounding Fast & Furious 11, there is also the much-anticipated Hobbs spin-off starring Dwayne Johnson. Fast X hinted at a connection between Hobbs and Reyes, potentially setting the stage for Momoa's final appearance in the franchise within this spin-off. However, details about the spin-off are scarce, causing frustration among fans who were initially expecting two Fast movies to film back-to-back and release within a year of each other.

As for the production timeline, it remains unclear when both Fast & Furious 11 and the Hobbs spin-off will move forward. The originally planned April 2025 release date for Vin Diesel's swan song in the franchise now appears to be a distant possibility, indicating further delays.

In conclusion, while fans eagerly await the conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise, it seems that patience will be required as the production faces hurdles and uncertainties. Jason Momoa's character, Dante Reyes, may still have a future in the series, but the exact details remain uncertain. As we await further updates, it's evident that the anticipated thrill ride of Fast & Furious 11 will take some time to hit the big screen.
