Fast & Furious 9 star Ludacris has potentially given away that the franchise is about to head into space.

The idea that space was the final frontier for the Fast franchise has been a long-running joke, but given how outlandish the series has become, we wouldn't be too surprised.

Appearing on Sirius XM's The Jess Cagle Show, Ludacris explained how the delay on the release of Fast 9 has given the creative minds behind the franchise more time to make the film (and possible sequels) some of the best of all time.

Co-host Julia Cunningham then said: "I don't even know creatively what they could come up with to wow us even though I know they do every time.

"I'm like, space has to be involved, submarines, I don't even know. In my mind I can't imagine what happens in the next movie."

Ludacris responded: "You just said something very important. I will say that you are very intuitive, cause you said something right, but I'm not going to give it away."

"It was space I said space," Julia then shouted, to which the rapper simply put his hand over his mouth, so as not to say anything more.

Obviously, this could all be a big wind up, but we're actually kind of excited about the possibility of seeing the gang potentially hop in a spaceship.

Last year, Fast & Furious screenwriter Chris Morgan admitted that "nothing’s out of the question" when asked whether we could see Dominic Toretto and the gang travel to space one day.

"It just has to be cool and it has to be good," he explained in an interview with Polygon. "You know, that’s the thing. I would say nothing is off-limits as long as we can stay on the right side of keeping the audience engaged."

Fast & Furious 9 will be released in April 2021.
