The “Fast & Furious” franchise isn’t leaving anyone behind.
On Wednesday, star Vin Diesel revealed the tenth film in the action series will be titled “Fast X”, and is bringing back a lot of familiar faces.
The Wrap confirmed that Charlize Theron, Sung Kang, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel and Jordana Brewster will all be returning.
In another post, Diesel revealed that Brewster’s character Mia Toretto, who plays his sister and has been in the franchise since the very first film in 2001, was not originally included in the “Fast X” script.
“You will never believe who corrected the very important role of Mia,” Diesel wrote. “My daughter, the Alpha Angel, who told the director very plainly and honestly ‘NO MIA NO FAST 10!’ haha. The irony, is that the day she was born I was filming with Jordanna and Pablo and it was Jordanna who I first told… profound right?”
Earlier this month, Diesel revealed that “Captain Marvel” star Brie Larson will also be joining the cast of the sequel.
“Yeah yeah yeah… you see this angel over my shoulder cracking me up, you say to your self ‘that’s captain Marvel.’ Clearly there is love and laughter in this image,” wrote Diesel in the caption, accompanying a photo of himself and Larson laughing uproariously.
“What you don’t see however, is the character you will be introduced to in Fast10,” he added.

“You have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology,” Diesel continued. “Beyond her beauty, her intellect… her Oscar, haha is this profound soul who will add something you might not have expected but yearned for. Welcome to the FAMILY Brie.”
While details about the upcoming 10th instalment in the “Fast & Furious” franchise are being kept top secret, it is known that, along with Diesel, Larson will be joining returning cast members Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Michelle Rodriguez, Sung Kang, Jason Momoa and Daniela Melchior, with Justin Lin back at the helm as director.
“Fast & Furious 10” is scheduled to hit theatres on May 19, 2023.
