Nine movies.  NINE MOVIES?  A series so indefatigable that even the death of one of its leads cannot stop it.  I guess we get the movies we deserve.  If we keep paying for this shit then we are only encouraging them!

Seemingly knowing its own audience perfectly, it has been confirmed that the previously rumored John Cena is joining the cast of the ninth Fast And Furious film.

Self-appointed franchise owner and clinger on for dear-life Vin Diesel hinted at Cena’s involvement back in late April. Now Universal Pictures has made it official, confirming the casting to Deadline today.
Now details are available on the character he will be playing, other than the fact he will be “badass”.  Quelle-fucking-surprise!

Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs will not appear but is due in theatres this summer in spin-off Hobbs And Shaw with the giant shark-puncher-in-chief himself, Jason Statham.

The Meg v Skyscraper

The usual roster is expected to return.  The fat man with the dirty vest who mumbles about “fambly”, the Mexican girl who looks like she needs a good bath, the hilarious non-threatening Minstrel show comic relief and the girl from Game  Of Thrones with the nice tits will all show up.  After all, it’s not like they have anything else to do.

Justin Lin helms the project, returning after sitting the last two films out, and Dan Casey is penning the script with him.  Filming gets underway this month ahead of the film’s release on May 22nd, 2020.
