Back in October, Vin Diesel, the star and executive producer of the billion-dollar franchise, teased the possibility of a female-led Fast and Furious spinoff.

The franchise is already in the middle of launching a spinoff Hobbs and Shaw, which opens in July. But the idea of an offshoot, possibly focused on Michelle Rodriguez, began forming.

Now, Diesel has seemingly confirmed that it’s happening. In the caption of the photo, which featured himself with sister and franchise producer Samantha Vincent, he revealed they had recently heard a “very exciting” pitch for the spinoff from writers Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.

Perlman has two Marvel Studios’ credits, one on the original script for Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel. Beer wrote the Netflix movie Sierra Burgess Is a Loser and is attached to the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. And Robertson-Dworet wrote the recent Tomb Raider movie. All three were part of the Hasbro shared universe writers’ room.

If their script is accepted by Universal and the upcoming Hobbs & Shaw proves to be a hit, the film will likely be fast-tracked into production. The Fast & Furious franchise, which is currently at 8 movies total have combined to gross a massive $5 billion at the worldwide box office.
