Jason Statham's Greatest Action Scene in FATE OF THE FURIOUS Almost Has a Different Ending
Without spoiling anything, my favorite scene in The Fate of the Furious includes a crazy action sequence involving Jason Statham on an airplane. If you've seen the movie, you know exactly what I'm talking about, and that scene could have ended in an even crazier way!
Writer Chris Morgan revealed an alternate ending to that scene in an interview with /Film and it would have been a fantastic conclusion! The following quote does contain some spoiler details but nothing too crazy or revealing. I just wanted to throw out a warning to avoid any death threats:
Here's how the alternate ending would have played out:
"Yes, so here was an early version we had, and ultimately we decided not to go with it, but to show you're on the right track. So Deckard Shaw arrives on the plane the exact same way, but he has a pack with him and we don't know what it is. And he gets the baby and fights his way out, and the end of that sequence is, he opens the duffel bag he's been carrying, and there's a baby seat in it. A car seat. And in the back of the plane is Dom's car that you see him load up into the plane earlier in the film. So he straps that kid in, gets in, and rolls it out the back, and they do the car going out like we did in Furious 7, but he's got the baby in it, and the baby is laughing the whole way. So that was something we considered. We had a version of that at one point."
I love it, but I understand why they didn't use it. They didn't want to repeat the same kind of stunt that's already been done. Regardless, it still would have been fun to watch! What do you think of the alternate ending?
