The Fast & The Furious franchise is one of the most bizarre successes in Hollywood history. Starting out as a – relatively – low-budget, undercover film; the series has gone onto become one of the most profitable. Of course, the series wasn’t always a billion dollar cash-cow. Believe it or not, there was a time when the franchise was… just okay. This was well-before the arrival of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who debuted in Fast Five – which grossed over $625 million worldwide.
One character who – sadly – died was none other than Han Seoul-Oh. Portrayed by Sung Kang; the character originally appeared in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift – which, due to some bizarre timeline issues, is actually set after Furious 6. In that film, it was revealed that Deckard Shaw – Owen Shaw’s brother – was the man who killed him.
While promoting the latest film in the franchise, The Fate of The Furious, writer Chris Morgan teased the -potential – return of the character. Morgan remarked:
“Now, that’s funny because I’ve actually been thinking about that a lot. So it’s interesting that you and I are on the same wavelength there. But I guess we’ll just have to wait and find out. I love Sung – he’s one of my favourite people on the planet.”
Now, from the sounds of it, we might see the character return in the next film in the franchise; Fast 9. Of course, that is not the final title, as that will likely change as time goes by. How would you guys feel about this? Would you like Han to return? You can check out the latest film in the blockbuster franchise when it opens in theatres everywhere on April 14.
