Vin Diesel has taken to his Instagram account to announce the latest recruit to his Fast & Furious family. With Dwayne Johnson stepping away from the main series to star in his own Hobbs & Shaw franchise, Diesel has gone back to the wrestling world and signed up Bumblebee star John Cena. His intro can be seen below.
This is the second high profile role for Cena this month following signing on to appear in an unrevealed role in James Gunn’s DC sequel/reboot The Suicide Squad.
There is also an unconfirmed rumour circulating the internet that Keanu Reeves is eying up the franchise and will either be a villain in Hobbs & Shaw or Fast 9.
Fast & Furious 9 is being directed by Justin Lin, returning to the franchise for the first time since 6, and is due for release on 22nd May 2020.
