Vin Diesel announced via Facebook Live today that not only will the next, vital installment in the Fast & The Furious franchise arrive, but we now know who is behind the wheel.
Director Justin Lin, responsible for the absolute best entries in the series (and one of the best action movies of the century), will be returning for both the 9th and 10th entries in the series proper. Ostensibly, this will complete the story of the Fast Fambly, or at least the story of those not named Hobbs or Shaw.
But Vin wasn’t done blessing our timelines and lives just yet. He also announced that a series mainstay, absent for the most recent film, would return to the series. Jordana Brewster will return to the series as Mia, filling our hearts with joy as she fills the Fambly’s stomachs with horrible tuna sandwiches. What this development portends as to the fate of Brian (the late Paul Walker) in the series timeline is anyone’s guess. Maybe the excuse for her return sans Brian or the kiddos will be food-borne illness?
You’ll have to wait and see when Fast & Furious 9 arrives in 2020. The Lewton Bus crew could not be more excited.
