Fast and Furious films are unique in the world of film franchises. For example, they’re not science-fiction or fantasy, unlike most other multi-billion-dollar box office club members – whereas the 2019 spin-off Hobbs & Shaw crossed the line with their cyber-enhanced bad guy.
Most notably, though, the films have curious alchemy, an odd mix of very fast cars, complicated heists, and relationship drama that often passes into the realm of soap operas. It’s a long road from where the series began with The Fast and the Furious 2001, a fun but unremarkable street racer movie with a sideline of daring auto-heists.
Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his multi-talented driver/tech squad are back for Fast and Furious 9, the 9th part of the series – or if you include Hobbs & Shaw, the tenth. Justin Lin, who directed the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth installments of the long-running saga – and is described by Diesel as the “architect” of the series – is back behind the camera, taking Star Trek Beyond a detour into the 23rd century.
Fast and Furious 9 have postponed coronavirus problems in the United States for more than a year until 2 April 2021. The above official statement shows the importance of security and the fact that many fans could not even reach the cinema to watch it.

The cast of Fast and Furious 9 will include:
- Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto
- Charlize Theron as Cipher
- Michelle Rodriguez as Letty Ortiz
- Helen Mirren as Magdalene Shaw
- Lucas Black as Sean Boswell
- Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey
- Jordana Brewster as Mia
- Michael Rooker as Buddy
- John Cena as Jakob Toretto
Cypher seems to have tracked Dom’s brother Jacob (Cena) and, I presume, used it to kill Dom and his quick fam. Of course, there will also be driving and automobiles as well as many other locations around the world where such vehicles are driven. At least one rocket engine should also be mounted in a vehicle.
Since Fast & Furious have taken away the banality of basic road racing, moon rumors have flown and begun to add submarines and torpedos to the mix. There is no valid reason why a fast movie is not to be set on the moon at this point, and writer Chris Morgan knows that, claiming that he will “never fire” the Fast Fam. They even know how to fire their cars around rocks, which is the first science rocket idea, as we all know.
