The next saga in Vin Diesel’s action-adventure franchise takes the crew on a race across the globe; Justin Lin returns to direct and Grammy-winning Cardi B joins the cast as a woman with a connection to Dom Toretto’s past – in theaters June 25.
Continuing its speedy race through sequel after sequel, a quarter mile at a time, the Fast & Furious franchise returns with its next chapter, F9, coming to theaters June 25. Justin Lin returns to direct the action filled adventure that races around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the streets of Tbilisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, the upcoming The Suicide Squad).
The film stars returning cast members Michelle Rodriguez; Tyrese Gibson; Chris “Ludacris” Bridges; Nathalie Emmanuel; Jordana Brewster; and Sung Kang, with Oscar winner Helen Mirren, with Kurt Russell and Oscar winner Charlize Theron. F9 also features Grammy-winning Cardi B as new franchise character Leysa, a woman with a connection to Dom’s past, and a cameo by Reggaeton sensation Ozuna.
Peter Chiang is the overall VFX supervisor, with visual effects produced by ILM, DNEG, Stereo D, Proof, Lola VFX and Factory VFX. F9 is produced by Neal H. Moritz p.g.a.; Vin Diesel p.g.a.; Justin Lin p.g.a.; Jeff Kirschenbaum p.g.a.; Joe Roth; Clayton Townsend p.g.a.; and Samantha Vincent. Universal Pictures presents an Original Film/One Race Films/Perfect Storm production in association with Roth/Kirschenbaum Films, a Justin Lin film.
