  • While we wait to reunite with Dom, Letty, and all the rest, we're passing the time by
  • rounding up all the spoilers and rumors we can get our hands on.
  • Salud, mi familia.
  • After spinning its wheels for four commercially successful but critically uneven films, the
  • Fast and the Furious franchise really took off with 2011's Fast Five, a slick, exuberant
  • heist action flick that bore little resemblance to the smaller stakes street racing movies
  • that had come before it.
  • One of its biggest upgrades came in the form of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Luke Hobbs,
  • a Diplomatic Security Service agent who served as the film's intimidating antagonist.
  • Hobbs would go on to follow in the footsteps of former FBI agent Brian O'Conner, joining
  • up with the Fast Family rather than trying to apprehend them for their big-hearted crimes.
  • "Daddy's gotta go to work."
  • Jason Statham also joined the Fast and the Furious series as rogue assassin Deckard Shaw,
  • the family's deadliest antagonist.
  • At the end of Fast & Furious 6, he was revealed to be the one who killed Han back in 2006's
  • The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
  • While many fans still haven't forgiven Shaw for that, he also wound up joining forces
  • with Dom's crew, and was responsible for saving Dom's infant son from Cipher in The Fate of
  • the Furious.
  • But while Hobbs and Shaw proved to be so popular that they got their own spinoff film, don't
  • expect to see them in the franchise's upcoming ninth film.
  • In an interview with MTV News, Johnson confirmed that he and Statham will not be appearing
  • there, although he left the door open for an appearance in the already confirmed 10th
  • installment.
  • The absence of Luke Hobbs leaves some mighty large shoes to fill, and who better to step
  • into them than that other wrestler-turned-actor, John Cena?
  • While no character description has yet been released, Universal has confirmed that Cena
  • is indeed joining the Fast and the Furious family, and his character is, to absolutely
  • no one's surprise, "a badass."
  • Beyond that, who Cena will be playing is anyone's guess, although it would be well within the
  • tradition of the franchise for him to make his entrance as a villain.
  • Johnson and Statham made the leap from antagonists to heroes, as did Luke Evans' Fast & Furious
  • 6 villain Owen Shaw, who helps save Dom's son in Fate of the Furious.
  • But Charlize Theron's baddie Cipher may also be getting her own spin-off, hinting that
  • she too may wind up switching sides.
  • At this point, it would almost seem weird for a Fast and the Furious movie to bring
  • on new big name and have them not play a villain.
  • Chris Morgan has been writing the Fast and the Furious scripts since Tokyo Drift, but
  • with Morgan stepping away to pen Hobbs & Shaw, Fast 9 has tapped Daniel Casey to take over
  • writing duties for the ninth installment.
  • He's best known for 2018's Kin, but Casey grabbed the studio's attention with his script
  • for The Heavy, a subversive superhero movie that is currently in the works from producer
  • J.J. Abrams.
  • It's fitting that Universal would look to a superhero writer for the next Fast and the
  • Furious movie, considering the larger-than-life direction the franchise has drifted in during
  • its latest installments.
  • The stunts have been growing increasingly more out-of-this-world for years.
  • Fate of the Furious even includes jetpacks like the one the Falcon wears in the Avengers
  • movies.
  • Idris Elba's character and his cyborg-like abilities might not just be a one off thing
  • "Look at me.
  • I'm Black Superman."
  • Perhaps Casey's hiring hints that superpowers won't be limited to spinoffs, and that the
  • already-loose physics of the Fast and the Furious series will get shrugged off entirely.
  • While most of Dominic Toretto's crew joined the franchise somewhere between the second
  • and fifth films, Michelle Rodriguez has been there from the very beginning, playing Dom's
  • girlfriend and eventual wife, Letty Ortiz.
  • However, while Letty and Dom were closer than ever at the end of The Fate of the Furious,
  • Rodriguez herself was a different story.
  • In an Instagram post in 2017, Rodriguez wrote that she might consider walking if the Fast
  • franchise didn't give women a more prominent role.
  • Faced with a future without one of the family's longest-tenured members, or perhaps simply
  • because the studio agreed with Rodriguez and wanted to do right by its female fans, Universal
  • agreed to her stipulation that she would only return if they hired a female writer for the
  • ninth movie.
  • Although we still don't know who the woman is who will be helping Daniel Casey pen the
  • script for Fast 9, we hope that Rodriguez gets her wish and that the script does indeed
  • show the amazing women of the franchise some love.
  • During the filming of Furious 7, Paul Walker, who had been playing Dom's best friend and
  • brother-in-law Brian O'Conner since the first movie, was tragically killed in a car crash.
  • Instead of writing a similarly sad fate for Brian, the ending of the film was rewritten
  • to bring closure to Brian's story, with him riding off into the sunset.
  • However, Vin Diesel announced in 2017 that Jordana Brewster will be reprising her role
  • as Mia, Dom's sister and Brian's wife, for Fast 9.
  • Given how important it was to the entire cast and crew of Furious 7 that Brian receive a
  • happy ending, it'll be interesting to see how the series chooses to bring back Mia without
  • killing Brian off-screen or splitting them up.
  • Hopefully, Brian's absence will be explained by him staying home with the kids while Mia
  • goes off with her brother to help save the world.
  • It seems like every fan-base in every franchise wants the same actor to join up and “woah
  • - up” their perspective universe: Keanu Reeves.
  • Information has been murky about just how big Reeves' role will be in the film.
  • Could he be the villain?
  • And if he is the villain will he be the behind-the-scenes type or out there John Wick-ing it up and
  • jumping from moving vehicles like a seasoned vet?
  • Or will he even be in the movie at all?
  • Plenty of websites reported that Reeves would appear in Hobbs and Shaw and - spoiler - he
  • didn’t.
  • Just because people want Keanu in the movie, it doesn’t mean it’ll happen - just ask
  • MCU fans.
  • While the original The Fast and the Furious was filmed entirely in and around Los Angeles,
  • the series has since shot all over the world.
  • "You're a long way from home.
  • This is Brazil!"
  • In Fast 9, the series will be returning to the U.K., with production confirmed to be
  • underway in London.
  • Other shooting locations include Los Angeles and Hawaii.
  • It's important to keep in mind that a shooting location doesn't necessarily guarantee that
  • part of the film will be set in the same place.
  • For example, in Fast & Furious 6, London stood in for Moscow, and in The Fate of the Furious,
  • many of the "New York" scenes were actually filmed in Cleveland.
  • Still, most of the time when the Furious films travel abroad, it's because at least part
  • of the movie is set in the country they're filming in.
  • So it's a safe bet that Dom and his crew will be hopping across the pond for some of Fast
  • 9, in addition to spending some time in at least one more tropical locale.
  • When it comes to gender representation, the Fast and Furious family has always been pretty
  • heavy on the dude side of things.
  • Fortunately, it seems as though Fast 9 may be taking some steps to correct that.
  • Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, and Nathalie Emmanuel are already set to reprise
  • their roles as Letty, Mia, and Ramsey, respectively, along with the as-yet unannounced female writer
  • joining the creative team.
  • In addition to these three established women of the Fast and the Furious world, Chris Bridges,
  • aka Ludacris, who has played Tej Parker in the series since 2 Fast 2 Furious in 2003,
  • took to his Instagram in early 2019 to tease an intriguing possible addition to the cast.
  • He posted a photo captioned "masterminding" of himself, his F&F cast-mate Vin Diesel,
  • and an actress moviegoers might recognize from John Wick: Chapter 2: Ruby Rose.
  • Of course, a single Instagram post doesn't necessarily mean that Rose is joining the
  • Furious family.
  • Even Luda's return for Fast 9 hasn't been confirmed yet, although it seems pretty likely
  • that he'll be back in action, even if the photo was taken just during a chill hangout
  • among pals.
  • It's worth noting, however, that Diesel is one of the masterminds of the franchise both
  • onscreen as Dom and behind the scenes as producer.
  • Considering that Rose previously appeared alongside Diesel in Triple X: The Return of
  • Xander Cage and that she's set to find new fame as the defender of Gotham City in the
  • CW's upcoming Batwoman series, Rose seems more than equipped to join this team of masterminds.
  • In the same Facebook Live video in which Vin Diesel announced Jordana Brewster's return
  • to the Fast and the Furious family, he also delightedly revealed that after a few years'
  • absence and a trip on board the starship Enterprise, director Justin Lin would be helming both
  • the ninth and tenth movies in the series.
  • Lin joined the Fast and the Furious series in 2006, taking the reins on The Fast and
  • the Furious: Tokyo Drift and staying with the films through 2013's Fast & Furious 6.
  • Other directors took over after that, with James Wan coming aboard for Furious 7 and
  • F. Gary Gray stepping in for The Fate of the Furious, but now Lin is back for what are
  • expected to be the final two installments in the saga.
  • Diesel said prior to the release of The Fate of the Furious that the reason he decided
  • to continue the franchise following Paul Walker's death while filming the seventh movie was
  • because Walker, quote, "promised eight."
  • He went on to explain that The Fate of the Furious would kick off a new trilogy that
  • would change the series.
  • Considering that the plot of Fate involved literal nuclear warheads, it's safe to say
  • they delivered.
  • Now that Lin, who was responsible for taking the series to new extremes, is returning to
  • shepherd the series through its final films, things only seem like they're going to get
  • bigger.
  • Nathalie Emmanuel first joined the Fast and the Furious crew as the mysterious master
  • hacker Ramsey in Furious 7, after she was kidnapped for inventing a hacking device called
  • the God's Eye.
  • Needless to say, she was subsequently rescued by Dominic Toretto and the Family, and the
  • next time we saw her in Fate of the Furious, she was an indispensable member of the team.
  • and now that we know she's returning for Fast 9, we can only hope that Ramsey will be a
  • member of the Fast family all the way until the end of the road.
  • We know Emmanuel is on her way back thanks to a tweet she made back in June, but that
  • wasn't the only part of it that got fans excited.
  • In addition to her announcement, she also included a row of emojis that look a whole
  • lot like the rest of the core cast, including Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris.
  • Their characters, Roman and Tej, have long been assumed to be returning for Fast 9, but
  • hadn't been officially confirmed.
  • Emojis may not be the most official means of confirmation, but it's looking increasingly
  • likely that the whole Fast family, minus their spin-off pals in Hobbs & Shaw, will be joining
  • forces yet again for Fast 9.
  • Maybe they can finally figure out what her full name is!
  • "Let me ask you one question."
  • "You can ask me anything."
  • "Anything?"
  • "What's my last name?"
