“No matter how fast you are, no one can outrun their past, and mine just called upon me”- Dominic Toretto. After three years of the 8th installment release from the Fast and Furious franchise ‘The Fate of the Furious.’ The Furious team is back with a new ninth segment.
F9/Fast and Furious 9 was set to release in May 2020, but due to the shutdown, the movie’s release date was shifted, and no further updates were given regarding the release. The fans have been waiting for the 9th part for a long time as it was the first movie with the new ‘Brian’ on the team.
DOMINIC TORETTO AND BRIAN O’CONNER
Dominic Toretto (played by Vin Diesel), a street racer and an auto mechanic, later carries out one of the most challenging heists. Brian O’Conner (played by Paul Walker) is an ex-cop and a keen driver; alongside Dom, they carry out missions throughout the movies stealing millions of dollars. The franchise started back in 2001 with the movie ‘The Fast and the Furious’ starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in the lead roles and was directed by Rob L. Cohen.
In the last 20 years, seven installments of the film have been released. Paul Walker has been in 6 of them. Furious 7 (2015) was the last film of Paul after a fatal accident in 2013 that resulted in the young actor’s death. The last scenes of the film and the song ‘See you Again’ by Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa was dedicated to the late actor.
The 20-year journey has been a very heart-touching story for the fans. Vin Diesel has been a part of the franchise with an appearance in all of the films. He has also been the executive producer of ‘Fast and Furious 6’ and ‘Fast Five.’
FAST AND FURIOUS TEAM REUNITES
After all Dominic’s family has been through, he always manages to save everyone and defeat his enemy. The ninth segment, F9, will not be the same for the team. Jordana Brewster, aka Mia Toretto, decided to exit from the franchise after Furious 7, as seen from the action as Paul’s character. In F9, she will be coming back as Mia and will be a part of the team.
John Cena, one of the most famous WWE wrestler and a well-known actor, will be playing the role of Jakob Toretto. Jakob is the second brother of Dom and Mia Toretto. The film describes his character as an assassin, a high-performance driver, and a master thief.
TORETTO VS. TORETTO
This film will show us the action of ‘Toretto vs. Toretto.’ It will be a whole lot different than the previous heists or attacks they have been through. Why did Jakob come to kill his brother? Where was he all these years? What does he want from Dom? All the answers to these questions are unknown. This, in turn, will be very exciting for the fans to watch this film with all the suspense and Toretto action.
Justin Lin is directing this film. He has been a very successful director with his past movies of the Fast and Furious franchise from 2006 to 2015. He’s also the director of the Bruce Lee action television series ‘Warrior.’ Keeping the pandemic’s current situation in mind, the movie will release in April 2021.
