Vin Diesel has begun filming ‘Fast & Furious 9’
Vin Diesel confirmed the news via Instagram, posting a video of himself alongside co-star Michelle Rodriguez as they discussed Fast & Furious 9.
“Can you believe it, Letty? Can you believe it? We just completed our first day,” says an obviously overjoyed Diesel.
Game of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel is connected to the new film, and teased that there will be more than a few returning cast members. “The team is back together,” she wrote on Twitter, alongside a series of emoji characters meant to represent the main six characters still involved in the F&F films.
Jodana Brewster has been confirmed as playing Diesel’s sister, Mia Toretto. Her character was last seen after her character’s husband (played by the late Paul Walker) passed away in 2013.
Tyrese Gibson will also be returning, and John Cena confirmed on Twitter earlier this month that he is officially joining the franchise.
Fast & Furious 9 is slated for release in May 2020. A tenth installment (TEN!!!) is already on the cards, slated for an April 2021 release date.
