The tenth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise is set to start filming in January, according to Vin Diesel. The actor confirmed on his Facebook page that production for “Fast 10” would begin next year, and he thanked fans for their support.
About the “Fast & Furious 10”!
Fast & Furious is a series of American action films that follow the events and characters after they’re enlisted in an FBI plan to infiltrate international drug trafficking. The franchise’s content revolves around illegal street racing, heists, car chases with law enforcement agencies hunting them, and their families being used against them.
After Universal Pictures released “The Fast and the Furious” on June 22nd, 2001, it was met with favorable reviews from critics but had only grossed $207 million worldwide because of its budgeting issues. It wasn’t until 2003 when the sequel “Tokyo Drift,” which grossed over $158 million, helped bring back audiences for future installments. In 2006 Vin Diesel joined in on playing Dominic Toretto, who is one of eight drivers in a street race, which was the beginning of his career with Universal.
Fast & Furious franchise is one of the most successful movie series in history, having grossed over $US:500 million and sold more than 20 million DVDs worldwide since 2001 across all 14 films. The latest installment, “The Fate of the Furious” (2017), has also been met with favorable reviews from critics and audiences alike, making it now the second highest-grossing film of 2017 domestically at $225 million behind only Marvel’s Guardians. Outside North America, it had earned another $485 million for an international total that currently totals $707 million.
Vin Diesel on FF 10!
It was announced last week that Fast & Furious would continue into its tenth installment, which means we can expect a new adventure with Vin Diesel reprising his role as Dominic Toretto.
The film has been in pre-production for some time now, and the latest reports are that filming will start next January. F&F star Vin Diesel confirmed this news in an Instagram post on Saturday, September 29th, with a celebratory message to his fans, which you can see below:
“Fast & Furious is not just about cars anymore,” he wrote. “It’s about family and love. Every journey leads me back here…home.” The actor also thanked Universal Studios chairman Donna Langley who had announced at CinemaCon on Thursday that Fast & Furious would continue past its tenth installment, as well as Dwayne Johnson (Luke Hobbs) and Michelle Rodriguez (Letty Ortiz).
Diesel captioned another photo of himself with Johnson and Rodriguez, “Myself & my family in the Fast Family photo.”
“There is so much more to come! Stay tuned!” he added. The post has already generated over 240,000 likes on Instagram. In it, Diesel grins from ear-to-ear flanked by his two co-stars, who are also grinning broadly as they stand side by side leaning against a car parked at an angle.
What can we expect in FF 10?
Diesel confirmed that the film would start filming next January 2022. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Diesel said: “We’re starting to shoot Fast & Furious in January.” He didn’t give any details other than pledging his continued involvement as Dominic Toretto and adding, “I’m going full circle from where I began at the end of Tokyo Drift all those years ago.” This is a great sign for fans who have been waiting for this movie!
Details about what we can expect are scarce; however, if it’s anything like the previous movies, then we’ll see some high-octane racing scenes and plenty of over-the-top stunts. According to The Guardian, there might be one more villainous character coming into play for the new film.
Fast & Furious, which is now on its tenth installment, started all the way back in 2001 with The Fast and the Furious starring Paul Walker as Brian O’Conner. It’s been a long time coming for fans to see another sequel after Universal Pictures announced an indefinite hiatus following Walker’s death in 2013, but it seems like this might be happening! Diesel has teased that more details will come at some point soon – so stay tuned!
We’ll have to wait to find out what other surprises we can look forward to from F&F-11 until next January when filming starts.
