The tenth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise will come to our screens in 2023, with the title Fast X. Louis Leterrier is the director of the upcoming American film, and Justin Lin and Dan Mazeau wrote the script. The film is set to release on May 19, 2023, however is time to say goodbye to the Fast and Furious franchise since it is the last film. In 2023, Fast X will make the biggest entry since it has a record breaking budget, a total amount of 340 million USD, comparing it with the previous film Fast anf the Furious 9 (F9) which had a 200 million USD budget. The film does not have an official trailer yet.
There is still no official plot for the film, but it is believed that the story picks up where the ninth film left off. However, we must remember that F9 left us post-credit scenes in which he shows us the reunion of Shaw and Han.
It seems like yesterday when we met Dominic Toretto, Brian O’Conner and the rest of the Fast and Furious group, but in reality almost twenty years have passed since the first film in the franchise that people have enjoyed from all times for being active and how the name itself indicates fast and furious. Fast X will be released in two parts, with a total of eleven films in the franchise.
The entire process of the film has been very chaotic due to the pandemic, which ended up harming the filming and the initial release of the film, Fast X should have been released on April 2, 2021, but let’s remember that in the end, on that date Fast and Furious 9 came out, which indicates a delay with respect to production. Filming began in January of this year, thus making the film reach our screens in the middle of 2023. However, Fast X was also set to premiere on April 7, 2023. We know that this date has already been modified to May 19.
Normally in the franchise there are always the same actors and new faces are added. In the list of stars that will be part of the project is obviously Vin Diesel as Dominic Toretto along with Jason Statham, Michelle Rodríguez as Letty Ortiz, Ludracris as Tej, Jordana Brewster as Mia Toretto, Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey, Sung Kang as Han, Charlize Theron as Cipher, Tyrese Gibson as Roman, Helen Mirren as Queenie, Cardi B as Leysa and John Cena as Jakob who is the brother of Dominic Toretto.
As for the new faces, at the moment this is Jason Momoa who would be the antagonist of Fast X. We also highlight Daniela Melchior who has already had appearances in movies such as Suicide Squad and will also appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 in 2023. The actress from the Marvel universe, Brie Larson who is Captain Marvel, will also have a role in the next film, finally Rita Moreno has joined who will play the role of Toretto’s grandmother.
We cannot forget that fans miss Dwayne Johnson or The Rock, but the personal relationship with Vin Diesel does not seem to have an arrangement.
There are new models of cars that appear in the movie and these are also very important protagonists that have brought the franchise to life since its inception. Cars like the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT and/or the DeLorean Alpha5 will feature in the film.
Without a doubt, it will be difficult to say goodbye to a franchise that has been in our movie theaters for twenty years and that the stars of all the movies have ended up being more than friends but a family.
