The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray may not return to direct the ninth installment of The Fast of the Furious franchise.
Speaking with Screen Rant, Gray said that he currently has a lot going on and his busy schedule may mean that he won’t be able to direct the ninth movie.
“Right now I’m starting a company, so that is my focus for the last couple of months. I had a chance to take a week off, a vacation, and then jump into some prior stuff that I had to take care of. And in the midst of starting a company, so that’s what I’ve been dealing with.”
For now, there’s no word on who may take the director’s chair for the ninth Furious film, but if Gray can’t come back, who do you think would be a good director to take on the next film? Let us know in the comments below!
