Could space be the final frontier for the Fast and Furious franchise?

And could Richard B. Riddick make an appearance?

The Fast and Furious movie franchise used to be a tale of street racers, undercover cops, and thugs. More recently, it's morphed into a pseudo-superhero band of misfits who consider themselves family, like really expensive vehicles, and saving the world. The man perhaps most responsible for the plotlines and amazing commercial success of the series is Chris Morgan, who is credited with writing all of the movies since T he Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

With The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment of the franchise, set to debut in mere days, it's only logical to wonder what's next. Turns out it could be – but probably won't be – space. In an interview with Uproxx, Morgan said, "The only way I'd go to space is if I had something so good." No, that isn't exactly confirmation of Domenic Toretto the astronaut, but it's also not an outright dismissal of the idea. And it gets crazier from there.

Morgan delivers the ultimate plotline with a question: "What if Dom's long lost brother, Richard B. Riddick showed up?" Surely he's not serious about a Diesel-vs-Diesel mashup, right? "Oh my God, I think Dom and Riddick would be so awesome." Don't laugh. And don't pretend you wouldn't pay good money to see it all go down on the big screen, either.
