Vin Diesel is starting his engine for the first time at the end of the day.
Michelle Rodriguez, Sung Kang, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, and Nathalie Emmanuel reprise their roles in the upcoming installment "Fast X," which follows the franchise's two-part finale. Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren, and Cardi B also return.
Rita Moreno becomes Diesel's "familia" onscreen grandmother, while Brie Larson joins the cast. Jason Momoa, however, has announced that he will play one of the many baddies in the high-speed action film. "I've been the good guy for a while."
Momoa said of his character: "He's very sadistic and androgynous, and he's a bit of a peacock." He's got a lot of problems, this guy. He's certainly got some daddy issues.
Dominic Toretto (Diesel) and his crew must seek help in their fight against Cipher (Theron) when she recruits Dante (Momoa), a mysterious new adversary, according to the official synopsis for "Fast X."
After directing "Fast and Furious" franchise director Justin Lin departed the production, apparently due to a rumored disagreement with lead singer Diesel, "Fast X" is directed by "Lupin" and "Now You See Me."
Lin said: “Over 10 years and five films, we have been able to record the finest actors, the finest stunts, and the best damn car chases.” As a child of Asian immigrants, I am immensely grateful to the amazing cast, crew, and studio for their support and for welcoming me to the 'Fast' family.
Diesel took to Instagram to unveil the poster for the film with the caption, "We're almost there...We can't wait to show you a taste of what's coming..." Meadow Walker, the daughter of late "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker, commented, "I love you. My family forever and forever."
Universal Pictures' "Fast X" will be released on May 19, 2023 in theaters.
