Fast & Furious 9:-
Here’s everything we know about Fast and Furious 9, so far. The Fast & Furious franchise expanded last summer with its first ever spinoff film, Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw. That movie followed Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw on their own standalone adventure, before the mainline series continues next year.
In the years since the original Fast and the Furious hit theaters in 2001, the property has grown by leaps and bounds in terms of box office gross, scope, and even critical reception. The franchise has also managed to attract quite the assortment of actors in that time, ranging from big-name action stars like Johnson and Statham to popular character actors, actors who have since become super-stars, and even Oscar-winners in the forms of Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron. At its core, however, the series is still the story of ex-convict street racer Dominic Toretto and his extended family. That hasn’t changed since Fast and the Furious costar Paul Walker tragic death during production on Furious 7, either.
Since Universal decided to bump Fast & Furious 9 back to 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there’s an extra year to go until the franchise’s mainline narrative picks up from where 2017’s The Fate of the Furious left things. As such, there’s still a good amount we don’t know about the film when it comes to plot. With that in mind, here’s everything we do know about the movie right now.
Fast & Furious 9 Release Date:-
Fans will have to wait a lot longer than originally expected for Fast & Furious 9 to hit theaters. Universal originally dated the film for April 19, 2019, before bumping it back and giving that date to Hobbs & Shaw. F9 was then placed on May 22, 2020, but the Coronavirus arrived to throw Hollywood into disarray, leading the sequel to be delayed nearly an entire year to April 2, 2021. That move leaves Fast and Furious 10 without a release date, for now.
Fast & Furious 9 Confirmed Cast:-
Returning to their prior franchise roles for Fast & Furious 9 are Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Nathalie Emmanuel, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren, Lucas Black, Bow Wow, Jason Tobin, and Sung Kang. New cast members for F9 include John Cena, Michael Rooker, Cardi B, Anna Sawai, Finn Cole, Vinnie Bennett, Ozuna, and Francis Ngannou. Details on all the new roles besides Cena’s – he plays Dom’s younger brother – are being kept under wraps.
Fast & Furious 9 Plot Details:-
The intricacies of F9‘s plot are still fairly vague, but what’s known is that the story concerns Dom Toretto (Diesel) and his makeshift family facing down the threat posed by the return of villain Cipher (Theron), and her new ally Jakob Toretto (Cena), Dom’s younger brother. In another surprising twist, the long thought dead fan-favorite character Han Lue (Kang), is returning, hopefully to finally get justice.
