Fast 9 Announces 1 Year Delay Due to Coronavirus
Ok, Coronavirus, now y'all gone and done it!
In a message delivered from United Artists, The Producers of the 9th installment of the Fast & Furious Series will delay the global premiere of the movie until April of 2021, nearly a year postponement due to the effects of the Corona Virus.
Here's the statement as printed on IGN.com:
To our family of Fast fans everywhere,
We feel all the love and the anticipation you have for the next chapter in our saga.
That’s why it’s especially tough to let you know that we have to move the release date of the film. It’s become clear that it won’t be possible for all of our fans around the world to see the film this May.
We are moving the global release date to April 2021, with North America opening on April 2. While we know there is disappointment in having to wait a little while longer, this move is made with the safety of everyone as our foremost consideration.
Moving will allow our global family to experience our new chapter together. We’ll see you next spring.
Your Fast Family
