Universal Pictures has released a brand new F9 featurette for Justin Lin’s long-awaited ninth installment to the long-running Fast & Furious franchise. The video features old interview clips and footage from the first film as well as the previous installments, highlighting the original cast including Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Sung Kang, and the late Paul Walker. It also continued to tease the next-level action for the upcoming ninth chapter which is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 25.
F9: The Fast Saga sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth chapters of the series which transformed into a global phenomenon. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tbilisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob.
The film features returning cast members Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Sung Kang, with Kurt Russell, Oscar winner Helen Mirren and Oscar winner Charlize Theron. F9 also features franchise newcomers John Cena and Grammy-winning superstar Cardi B as a new franchise character Leysa, a woman with a connection to Dom’s past, and a cameo by Reggaeton sensation Ozuna.
Based on the characters created by Gary Scott Thompson, F9 is written by Daniel Casey and Justin Lin from a story by Lin, Casey, and Alfredo Botello. produced by Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel, Jeff Kirschenbaum, Joe Roth, Justin Lin, Clayton Townsend, and Samantha Vincent.
