Plot unknown. The ninth installment of the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise.
Director: Justin Lin
Stars: Charlize Theron, Vin Diesel, John Cena, Helen Mirren
While it’s possible there’s still a little extra work to be done before F9 is 100% finished, such as ironing out the VFX, the next installment in the Fast & Furious franchise is almost at the finish line, and with plenty of time to spare. F9 isn’t scheduled to arrive until next May, so Lin and his team could have easily spread out the work and finished F9 just a month or two before delivering it to the public. Instead, it sounds like F9 will be ready to go before 2020 is over.
F9 sees Dominic Toretto and our other intrepid protagonists facing off against John Cena’s Jakob Toretto, Dom and Mia’s estranger brother who’s joined forces with Charlize Theron’s Cipher, the main antagonist from The Fate of the Furious. F9 is also bringing Sung Kang’s Han Lue back into play after years of the character having thought to be killed, and somehow the action will eventually make its way into outer space. This is Justin Lin’s fifth time directing a Fast & Furious movie, having joined the franchise with 2006’s Tokyo Drift and helming the three movies that followed.
