Fast 9 Delayed Yet Again And James Bond Is To Blame

The ninth installment of the Fast and Furious saga was supposed to come out May 22 this year. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic put those plans on ice, as it did every other Hollywood movie that was supposed to come out in theaters this year. Universal Studios called an audible and rescheduled the release for April 2, 2021, but now it looks like Fast 9’s release will once again get pushed back to May 2021. Oddly enough, COVID-19 isn’t to blame for this latest reschedule; the fault lies squarely on the shoulders of James Bond or, more specifically, the release of No Time to Die, the 25th movie of the long-running movie franchise. Originally scheduled for release on April 3 this year, No Time to Day was pushed back to November. Then it was pushed back yet again for April 2, 2021, or the earlier release date of Fast 9 before it got bumped off to May 2021. Don’t be surprised if Dominic Toretto sets his sights on James Bond in Fast 10.
