Fast and Furious 10: what do we know about the film? We tell you everything!

While Fast and Furious 8 is broadcast tonight on TMC, zoom in on the next episode of the saga: Fast and Furious 10, expected in theaters in May 2023.

Released last July, Fast and Furious 9 has once again proven that the saga launched in 2001 still had it under the hood. This new episode thus became the 5th biggest success of 2021 at the global box office, only surpassed by two Chinese films (Hi, Mom and The Battle at Lake Changjin) as well as Die Can Wait and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

These bodes well for the rest of the franchise which will therefore have a tenth but also an eleventh part, both directed by Justin Lin (to whom we owe episodes 3, 4, 5, 6 and 9) and whose shooting should be imminent if we are to believe statements by Vin Diesel dating from last June. Fast and Furious 10 must in any case be released on May 19, 2023 across the Atlantic and probably two days earlier in France.

An intrigue kept secret

During the promotion of the ninth film, Justin Lin admitted already knowing how the saga will end. “It’s a conversation we’ve had for a long time. So I can say ‘yes’ to you, in general terms. And especially because the 9 marks the beginning of a trilogy“, he specified without, obviously, giving more details.

As a reminder, Fast and Furious 9 ends on a positive note where the whole gang (even Brian!) Meets at Dom, himself reconciled with his brother Jakob (John Cena), introduced as the villain of the feature film but who ends up joining the cause of the character embodied by Vin Disel like almost all the antagonists of the franchise. If not Cipher (Charlize Theron), who escapes elsewhere at the end of the film.

It is therefore difficult to know where episode 10 will lead the Toretto “family” since nothing has been disclosed concerning the plot of the film. But given the post-credits scene of The 9, one can easily imagine that Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) will be back and face off against Han (Sung Kang), who he thought he took out in Tokyo Drift. There are also rumors that the heroes might venture out in the world of Formula 1

It’s also possible that Cipher will once again disrupt Dom and his friends’ daily life, and it could also be that the Shaw family is further dug with an appearance by Magdalene’s husband (Helen Mirren). Vin Diesel already has a name in mind to interpret it: none other than Michael Caine!

The Dwayne Johnson case

If it is not known if Vin Diesel will manage to convince the icon of British cinema to join the adventure, one thing is certain, he failed with Dwayne Johnson.

Indeed, following the various clashes between the two men, the interpreter of Luke Hobbs let it be known last July that he did not intend to appear in episodes 10 and 11. A few months later, Diesel tried to make him hear right with a message posted on Instagram where he spoke of his children’s friendship for Johnson and the legacy of the late Paul Walker.

You have to come back, don’t leave the franchise, you have a very important role to play. Hobbs cannot be played by anyone else. Hope you rise to the occasion and fulfill your destiny“, he had also written in this publication on which the former wrestler recently returned.

To CNN, he said: “Vin’s recent public post was an example of his manipulation. I did not like that he mentions his children in his message, as well as the death of Paul Walker. Leave them out of it.“And reaffirmed that he”there was no way he would come back“in the saga.

On the other hand, the rest of the main cast (Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel and Michelle Rodriguez) should be back to conclude what has become one of the longest-running sagas in cinema!
