If you want clues on Fast & Furious 11's storyline, you have to go back and "listen to the dialogue" in Fast X, says director Louis Leterrier – specifically during Cipher's very first scene in the action movie.
Towards the start of the flick, which was released back in May, Charlize Theron's Cipher turns up to the Toretto residence unannounced. Beaten and bloody, she warns Dom (Vin Diesel) and Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) that Dante, Jason Momoa's villain, is after them and that "a war is coming, sides are being chosen, and everyone you love will be destroyed."
In a new interview with CinemaBlend, Leterrier touched on how important said moment is and revealed that it's one of a handful of key scenes that hint at what's to come in the franchise's upcoming penultimate chapter.
"Listen to what is said, listen to the dialogue. I think people enjoy the visuals, and the flare, and the fun, and everything," the filmmaker began. "But there are some scenes that are designed where the conversations, the threats are real. When something sticks out, it's for a reason. I'm not talking about one scene in particular, there's like five scenes where we laid out the seeds to our great, next part of this adventure.
"Let's start with the beginning. The moment where Cipher enters Dom and Letty's house. Whatever she says will inform everything."

And theirs are not the only fates that hang in the balance, either: Fast X cuts to black on a particularly perilous moment for Dom and his son,Read more on gamesradar.com
