‘Fast & Furious 9’ To Launch Dominic Toretto And Family Into Outer Space!
One of Hollywood’s longest-running franchises is back for another reboot and things are going beyond our vision this time. After so many sequels, it doesn’t get any easier to find original locations. Planet Earth is no longer the playground for the Fast and Furious family. With 8 installments, the series of films that sent many cars to the scrapyard fully assumes its megalomaniac side. Some fans of the saga probably refused to believe the rumor that the ninth episode of the saga, scheduled for spring 2021, would propel Dominic Torreto (Vin Diesel) and his cronies into space.
What might at first seem like a joke is now a fact, some of the action in Fast & Furious 9 will take place in space. Last July, actor Ludacris already hinted that the heroes of Fast and Furious 9 would take a little tour in zero gravity. Prompted to react, Michelle Rodriguez in an interview, amused that the information could have leaked accidentally confirmed the rumor.
She said, “Oh, no way. How did you guys find that out? See what happens? People start talking behind the scenes, man. When a movie doesn’t come out and forget about it, things get out. Nobody was supposed to know that…Oh, well, no, I’m not, I’m not, I’m not lucky enough to hit space, but we did get a female writer and showed a lot of love, I think, on this one. Thanks to…Justin Lin. We were able to, to find a little bit more attention and love for the girls in the movie. And so I’m really hopeful, that shows through in the final product.”
The 42-year-old actress also indicates that it is not she who will have the chance to go to the stars, hinting at possibilities that the mission could be for Dominic Toretto perhaps.
The film will be featuring the majority of the cast which has been seen before in the franchise like Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris. While it’s being said that Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs wouldn’t be making an appearance on this one, Charlize Theron will return to play Cipher, the villain from the 8th part and prequel titled The Fate of the Furious. Making his appearance as Dom’s previously unseen brother Jakob, the franchise is all set to welcome John Cena as a new member of the cast. Michelle Rodriquez, who has played the character of Letty Ortiz Toretto since the beginning of the saga in 2001, has confirmed the rumors of the team heading to space during the radio program The Jess Cagle Show on SiriusXM station, as reported by the Deadline website.
The ninth installment of the action-packed series, officially titled F9, was initially slated to hit theaters this summer but all credits to the man who ate a bat, the coronavirus pandemic happened. Like many other films, it has also been decided to postpone this blockbuster. The fans still have to be patient, because the stuntmen will not appear in the cinema again until April 2, 2021.
