The outspoken Latina, who has played Diesel's love interest in the franchise films, spoke out following the release of the eighth movie, "The Fate of the Furious", insisting she'd walk away if writers didn't give female characters stronger story lines.
"I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise," she said in June 2017.
Diesel took her threat seriously and last week revealed he is working on a spin-off movie, surrounding women.
"This week, we heard a pitch for the 'Fast' female protagonist driven spinoff I created in 2017," he captioned a photo of himself and "Fast & Furious" franchise executive producer, Samantha Vincent. "You can tell by the smile on Samantha's face that it was VERY exciting."

There's already one "Fast & Furious" spin-off in the works - Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) and Jason Statham are reprising their characters from the films for new movie "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw" film.
