UPDATE: A production date is set for ‘Fast 9’ to start rolling on April 20th, 2019.
Expect Charlize Theron’s ‘Cipher’ to return as the 9th installment should pick up where ‘The Fate & The Furious’ left off with her villainess character escaping at the end.
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.
