Last year we reported that an all-female Fast & Furious spinoff featuring all the major female characters in the franchise was in the works. In an Instagram post, Vin Diesel posted a picture of himself with his sister — who’s one of the producers of the franchise — Samantha Vincent and announced in the caption that three female writers have joined the family to pen the spinoff. The three writers, Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet will most likely be working together in the writer’s room during the scripting process.
Now, we’ve got some updates. In an interview with MTV International, Vin Diesel had this to say:
I’ve created a female spinoff, and that script comes in next month. So we will see.
While the updates aren’t major, I’m still genuinely excited to see the film come through. Not because I’m a mega-fan of the franchise or anything like that, but because of the writers involved.
Nicole Perlman co-wrote the script of Guardians of the Galaxy with James Gunn. Apart from that, she also provided story ideas for Captain Marvel and worked on the screenplay of the pretty funny Pokemon: Detective Pikachu. Geneva Robertson-Dworet is also one of the co-writers of Captain Marvel and also penned the script for the Alicia Vikander Tomb Raider movie. The most exciting of the writers is Lindsey Beer who wrote Sierra Burgess Is a Loser and is one of the screenwriters of Doug Liman’s upcoming Sci-Fi film starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, Chaos Walking.
