In a lengthy social media post, Vin Diesel gets emotional about the upcoming Fast & Furious 10 and hopes to make the fans proud. More than twenty years after the franchise first took off, the surprise juggernaut is approaching its end. The series just released its blockbuster ninth installment last year, F9, and work is expected to begin soon on Fast & Furious 10. Plot details are still being kept under wraps, but the movie already has a May 2023 release date. Justin Lin returns to direct after helming five previous installments, including F9.
It has already been confirmed that Fast & Furious 10 will be the first in a two-part finale for the franchise. Though spinoffs are still in various stages of development and discussion, the main saga will come to a close. Diesel will return as Dominic Toretto, and he’ll be joined by several other franchise mainstays like Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris. In terms of newcomers, Fast & Furious 10 has already added a pair of exciting names: Jason Momoa, who is will play the villain, and The Suicide Squad breakout Daniela Melchior.
It isn’t quite clear when Fast & Furious 10 will begin filming, but Diesel suggested it might be soon in a recent social media post. Sharing a picture of himself as Dom, Diesel told fans he is approaching the “finale of the first saga… that is Fast.” He described the process as intense and stated his gratitude that Universal is willing to make the finale a two-parter. Diesel also promised that “There are angels coming to this mythology that will make you all smile.” before concluding that he hopes he can make the fans proud. You can see his full post down below.
The Fast & Furious franchise is where it is now because of the dedicated fans who have come out in droves to see each new installment, so it isn’t surprising that Diesel would be deeply appreciative of their support. Franchise conclusions can be hit or miss, but by honoring the fans and everything that came before, Diesel and the Fast & Furious 10 creative team can make a finale that will be fondly remembered for years to come. Of course, with so few details known about the project now, it’s hard to say just how this ending will go.
Diesel’s mention of “angels” will likely make many think of the late Paul Walker, who started the entire Fast & Furious saga with Diesel back in 2001. The franchise has found several ways to honor Walker since his passing in 2013, and it can be assumed that both Fast & Furious 10 and its sequel will go all-in on a tribute for him. Diesel’s comments could suggest that Walker’s daughter is finally joining the franchise, which is something many people – Diesel included – have suggested. Or, he could be referring to something completely different. Fans will just have to wait and see what Fast & Furious 10 has in store.
