Universal Postpones Blockbuster “F9– Fast and Furious 9” from Next Month to Next Year Over Virus Panic


Isn’t F7 delete on the keyboard?

Well, “F9” has now been deleted until next year. Universal has cancelled plans to release “Fast and Furious 9” until next spring, April 2, 2021. It was supposed to open on May 22nd.

This is just the latest in a series of movie cancellations for this spring. “F9” would have been a blockbuster, but not if no one can go in the theaters.

Vin Diesel and crew will have to roll elsewhere for the time being.
