In addition to the two already-announced sequels to "Fate of the Furious" -- which launched a new post-Paul Walker trilogy -- Deadline says the studio is planning a side film with Johnson's Luke Hobbs and Statham's Deckard Shaw.
Chris Morgan, who wrote every sequel since "Tokyo Drift," will pen the script.
A tag at the end of "Fate of the Furious" was supposed to tease a potential team up between Johnson and Statham, but it was reportedly scrapped when Vin Diesel caught word of it.
A scene was filmed where one of the men said, "We should be working together instead of for that idiot," referencing Diesel's character. According to The Wrap, an "enraged" Diesel was only made aware of the scene after it was shot and had it cut from the film.
"Fast and Furious 9" is expected to hit theaters April 19,2019, with "Fast and Furious 10" behind it on April 2, 2021.
