Producer and star VIN DIESEL is planning to cap off the ‘Fast’ franchise with a bang by bringing back JUSTIN LIN to not only direct FAST & FURIOUS 9 but also the final 10th installment!

Lin previously directed the third (Tokyo Drift), fourth, fifth, and sixth installments which literally recharged the franchise into what it is today: a blockbuster ensemble ‘Expendables’-esque series combining fast cars with globe trotting mind-blowing action.

Diesel made the announcement via Facebook:

As you can see in the video, original cast member JORDANA BREWSTER is also set to return after being absent in ‘The Fate Of The Furious’.

‘Fast & Furious 9’ races into theaters on April 10, 2020.
