Jason Momoa formally enters 'Fast & Furious' universe
The Fast & Furious family is expanding! According to the latest announcement from the Fast Saga on social media, actor Jason Momoa will now be part of Fast & Furious 10. A properly suited Momoa was featured in the announcement poster. Backed by Universal Pictures, the 10th installment in the popular film franchise is slated to hit theaters on May 19, 2023, for now.
'Aquaman' star could play one of the villains
While no details about Momoa's role are out, The Hollywood Reporter reported that the Aquaman star might play an antagonist in the upcoming movie. Universal Pictures has, however, refused to comment on this. Character specifics can be expected to surface later in the year, given the title of the film is also currently a tentative one. For now, Momoa's participation is exciting enough.
'The Fast Fam keeps getting bigger'
Charlize Theron is expected to be back for 'F&F 10'
Justin Lin, who has helmed five films in the series and returned to the franchise with 2021's F9: The Fast Saga, will be directing the 10th and 11th parts, too. The Vin Diesel-led film will also welcome back regulars Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, and Sung Kang. Charlize Theron, who first appeared in The Fate of the Furious, should also be back.
Other stars might join too, but not Dwayne 'Hobbs' Johnson
Notably, the main franchise of cars and racing will come to an end with the 11th film. Spinoffs such as Hobbs & Shaw can and most probably will get continued, given the huge craze behind these movies. But Dwayne Johnson, who played Luke Hobbs, is not coming back to the franchise. In the past, he said there was "no chance" of him returning.
Momoa brought in to make up for Johnson's absence?
To recall, Diesel had publicly "begged" Johnson to return to the series, after the latter's exit. Following this social media proposal, the Red Notice star called Diesel "manipulative," noting how he had already turned down the offer "in private." Speculations suggest it was after Johnson's curt refusal that makers began searching for a replacement, finally selecting Momoa. F&F 10 shooting will begin this spring.Share this timeline
