Here's How Ludacris Feels About 'Fast & Furious' Franchise Ending

Ludacris is opening up about the Fast & Furious franchise ending its long run.

The -year-old actor and musician played Tej Parker in the movies, starting with 2 Fast 2 Furious.

During a virtual interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with guest host Tiffany Haddish, Ludacris revealed he’s not all that sad.

“Man, they just announced that. We’re gonna end on 10 and 11,” he shared. “Me personally, I thought we were going to end on 10. But I’m not at all sad about it.”

Ludacris added his reason: “‘Cause you gotta think about it: I came out in 2 Fast 2 Furious, we never knew we were gonna get a call back for [Fast & Furious] 5. Now I been in 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. And now they’re telling me there’s gonna be two more? I’m happy!”

The news about the final movies came just a month ago.

According to Deadline, the final two movies will focus on a big story focused on Vin Diesel‘s character, Dominic.

During the appearance, Ludacris seemingly hinted that the next installment of the hit franchise – F9 – will be heading into outer space.

Co-host Julia Cunningham said she was trying to think of how the series could keep topping itself with bigger, more ambitious plot scenarios, and named space as one option.

“I will say that you are very intuitive, because you said something right, but I’m not going to give it away,” he hinted.

When she asked to confirm whether it was space, he simply covered his mouth and pretended he couldn’t say anything.

“I don’t know. I don’t know what you said,” he went on to tease.

“I will say — what’s the best way to answer this? — you’ll have to wait and see. Listen, as long as the stakes were set up correctly, then I’m down for whatever,” series screenwriter Chris Morgan previously said of the same scenario.

F9 was supposed to be released on May 22, but has been pushed to April 2, 2021 amid the pandemic.

This star was in an earlier installment of the series, but her head was cut out!
