In a statement released via Facebook, Paramount bosses explain they have to make the 'tough' move for 'the safety of everyone' amid the rapid spread of coronavirus.

AceShowbiz - The release of the latest "Fast and Furious" film has been pushed back a whole year in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The much-anticipated film was set to debut on May 22, but bosses at Paramount took to Facebook on Thursday, March 12 to announce the film's release would be delayed by 11 months.

"We feel all the love and the anticipation you have for the next chapter in our saga," the statement reads. "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."

"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."

The production, which stars Vin Diesel, is the latest release to be halted as the virus becomes an official global pandemic. "A Quiet Place: Part II", the latest James Bond film "No Time to Die", "The Lovebirds" and the "Peter Rabbit" sequel have also been rescheduled.
