Vin Diesel and his original ride-or-dies return in a new featurette by F9, the ninth chapter of the Quick saga in theaters June 25. Two decades after Dominic Toretto (Diesel), his sister Mia (Jordana Brewster) and Letty’s fast family (Michelle Rodriguez) were introduced to the franchise. The Fast and the Furious, they’re back – and the family is growing a bit. F9 reveals John Cena as Dom and Mia’s abandoned brother, Jakob Toretto – now a thief, assassin and high performance pilot – who throws himself with cyberterrorist Cipher (Charlize Theron) in a vendetta that will take all of Dom familia bring down.
“Quickly fans realized early on that we were ready to defy expectations in every chapter, ”the series star and producer Diesel said in the F9: The originals featurette released by Universal Pictures. “Even with that you have no idea [what’s coming next]. I feel so excited for the world to see the ninth chapter. “
F9 is a “game changer, that’s for sure,” teases Rodriguez, who reunites with franchise favorites Tyrese Gibson (as Roman), Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges (as Tej), Nathalie Emmanuel (as Ramsey) and Sung Kang ( like Han), which returns to the Quickly franchise for the first time since 2013 Furious 6.
“To be honest, when we started, the community of Quickly was not the community it is today, ”director Justin Lin, who has directed five Fast Furious movies starting with the years 2006 Tokyo Drift, said previously EW about his return to Quick saga. “I feel like together we have to gain every kind of connection with the audience. With these sequels sometimes people take it for granted and think it’s going to happen; I always think we have to earn the next one. “
Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto leads a quiet life off the grid with Letty and her son, little Brian, but they know danger always lurks just above their peaceful horizon. This time, this threat will force Dom to face the sins of his past if he is to save those he loves most. His crew reunites to stop an earth-shattering plot led by the most talented assassin and high-performance pilot they’ve ever met: a man who also happens to be Dom’s abandoned brother, Jakob (John Cena, the next The Suicide Squad). F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as a director, who helmed the series’ third, fourth, fifth, and sixth chapters when it morphed into a global blockbuster. The action travels around the world – from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the bustling streets of Tbilisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old enemies will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
