With F9 now out, here’s everything we know about Fast & Furious 10.
The car-centric series has come a long way from its street-racing roots when it debuted in 2001 with Rob Cohen’s The Fast and the Furious. Two decades after, it has become a fully-fledged multi-media action-adventure franchise with a legion of fans all over the world.
The culmination of the Fast Saga begins with F9; director Justin Lin returns to helm the project, years after exiting it. Aside from Dominic Toretto and his team going up against his estranged brother, Jakob, who is backed by Fate of the Furious villain Cipher, it also sees the return of Han Lue.
The long-time member of “La Familia” was deemed dead after his fatal car crash at the end of Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift; now that he’s back, the quest for justice regarding what happened to him is on. Beyond that, Lin is also tipped to spearhead the next two installments of the franchise starting with Fast & Furious 10.
Fast & Furious 10 Release Date
Initially, F9 was set to hit theaters in April 2020, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was pushed to a June 2021 debut. This created a domino effect in The Fast Saga’s current slate.
Fast & Furious 10, which should’ve been already out now had it not been for the global health crisis, was slated for an April 2021 roll-out but has now been delayed indefinitely. While there’s no release date has been confirmed for Fast & Furious 10, it has been confirmed by franchise star Tyrese Gibson, who plays driver Roman Pearce, that it will shoot back-to-back with Fast & Furious 11. Production kicks off in 2022, and Universal’s previous release pattern indicates the earliest possible premiere could be the summer of 2023.
Fast & Furious 10 Cast
With only two films left in The Fast Saga, Fast & Furious 10 will more likely see the return of its primary cast, headed by Vin Diesel. It’s worth noting that there’s no official cast list has been released for the film, but Cardi-B’s F9 character is also confirmed for Fast & Furious 10. On the side of the villains, big bad Cipher (Charlize Theron) and Jakob could also factor. Finally, as the Fast & Furious franchise culminates, there’s a good chance that Luke Hobbs (Vin Diesel) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) could see themselves back in the mainline of movies.
Fast & Furious 10 Story Details
Aside from being the middle installment of The Fast Saga’s last trilogy, Fast & Furious 10 could be the first half of a two-part finale. The franchise was tipped to wrap up with its 10th installment, but Diesel and Universal mined inspiration from Marvel Studios and split its send-off narrative. For Fast & Furious 10, there are rumblings about the series going all out as it goes into space.
This is subtly teased in F9 with Roman and Tej’s rocket car. Aside from that, there’s also the ongoing crusade with regard to delivering justice for what happened to Han — something that’s one of the main motivating factors about why Lin wanted to return to The Fast Saga.
