The next Fast and Furious is officially called Fast X.
As is often the case with Fast and Furious news, Vin Diesel posted an image on Instagram (below) with what appears to be the logo of the new movie. Being called Fast X would make sense, considering it’s the tenth feature film.
Diesel included the caption “Day 1” indicating production has begun, but didn’t reveal much more about the next entry in the franchise, which spans more than two decades.
Diesel revealed, again via his Instagram, last week that Marvel’s Brie Larson had joined the Fast and Furious cast. While her role has not been confirmed, Diesel said Larson will bring something that fans have unknowingly longed for.
He said in the post: “You have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology. Besides her beauty, her intellect… her Oscar, haha is this deep soul that will add something that you may not have had expect what you longed for. Welcome to the Brie family.”
She is one of three big name newcomers to come to the series. Aquaman’s Jason Momoa has been confirmed to play the film’s villain, while The Suicide Squad’s Daniela Melchior is also joining the family.
Fast X will be the first half of a two-part finale for the franchise and will hit theaters on May 19, 2023.
