Actor Jordana Brewster said the delayed release of the next instalment of “Fast and Furious” is a “bummer”.
The 37-year-old star, who plays Mia Toretto in the action film franchise, however, said she hopes the makers will use the time lag to their advantage, reports E! News.
“It is a bummer because the longer you have to wait… I mean, it’s a bummer. But, on the other hand, that gives everyone a little more time to ruminate and make it better, so that’s good,” said Brewster.
The ninth chapter was originally scheduled to open on April 19, 2019 but the film will now arrive in cinemas on April 10, 2020.
The announcement came in after one of co-star’s Tyrese Gibson accused Dwayne Johnson of “flying solo” in creating the spin-off movie from the action movie franchise, which led to the pushback of the date.
Vin Diesel defended Johnson, saying the release date of the movie being postponed is no one’s fault.
The “Fast and Furious” spin-off, also featuring Jason Statham, is slated for a 2019 release.
The franchise also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Scott Eastwood, Kurt Russell and Charlize Theron.
