Fast and Furious 9 Brings in an Exciting New Writer

Fast & Furious 9 is getting a new writer. Chris Morgan, who has penned every single one of the movies in the franchise since The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, won't be taking on the next installment of Universal's cash cow.

This makes for a big change, as Morgan has been a consistent cog in the machine ever since these movies started becoming megahits at the box office. But he's not leaving the Fast and Furious world entirely.

Chris Morgan is taking over writing duties on Dwayne Johnson's upcoming Fast and Furious spin-off, which reteams him with Jason Statham. David Leitch was recently tapped to direct the movie, which is set to arrive in theaters on August 2, 2019, after recently being bumped back a week by Paramount. It makes sense to have Morgan,
