While "Fate of the Furious" is dominating the No. 1 slot in the US for the second straight weekend (it's pegged to make $38.7 million this weekend and $163.6 million overall for the first two weekends), its performance hints that the franchise may have peaked domestically with "Furious 7".

Sources are saying that Universal is planning to make a spin-off movie for The Fate of the Furious costars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

Fast and Furious 9 won't be out for another couple of years, but it's probably safe to say that Han will more than likely be a part of the ninth and tenth films. Some of the biggest names in Hollywood share the screen in the films, as well, including Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Charlize Theron and Jason Statham.

Future of revamped health care bill remains dubious in House
So yes, national Republicans should look the the "Maine model" as they consider health care policy, but not as a success story. To receive the waiver, though, states must set up a high-risk insurance pool or participate in the federal high-risk pool.

It's unclear if the spinoff has anything to do with the tensions between The Rock and Vin Diesel during "Fate of the Furious" filming.

The eighth installment of the "Fast And Furious" theme was tracking to deal $38.7 million in weekend sales in the United States and Canada, according to studio accountants at Universal.

It can be rememberred that the "Moana" actor stepped into the hit movie franchise during the "Fast Five" movie.

Spoilers for Fate of the Furious follow.

Morgan has yet to write a script for the spinoff as it's just being discussed. The trade blog adds that the movie could conceivably be made while they are figuring the next 'Fast' film. I don't know how they're going to raise the stakes in the next one after turning Dom against his crew, but writer Chris Morgan never seems to be out of ideas (and that includes having a wild idea if the franchise ever chose to go into space). "So I'm happy that we're here in New York City, I'm happy the fans love it".

Screenwriter Chris Morgan, who has written every Fast & Furious film since Tokyo Drift, would return to write the new spin-off film, as well.
