F9: THE FAST SAGA Trailer & Character Posters

No matter how fast you are, no one outruns their past. 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 , next year’s The Suicide Squad).

Eiza Gonzalez Joins Hobbs & Shaw

Variety is reporting " Baby Driver ” star Eiza Gonzalez has joined the ensemble of Universal’s “ Fast and Furious ” spinoff “ Hobbs and Shaw ” starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham . The role was a last-minute addition, and sources say execs favored Gonzalez, but scheduling had to be worked out with Legendary’s “Godzilla vs. Kong,” which features Gonzalez and is also about to begin shooting. Idris Elba and Vanessa Kirby are also on board with David Leitch directing. “Fast and Furious” architect Chris Morgan penned the script. The film will see the titular, often-at-odds pair teaming up. It is unknown who Gonzalez will be playing. Since his arrival in the franchise’s fifth installment, Universal has tried to find a way to spin off Johnson’s Hobbs character, given his popularity with fans. Statham joined the series in the seventh movie, and considering the chemistry between the two actors in 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious,” Universal took action on plans to devel

Fast & Furious Spinoffs & Prequels On It's Way

The “ Fast and Furious ” franchise may take a page from “ Star Wars ” and Marvel. Producer and star Vin Diesel tells Variety that the team behind the fast cars and criminals series is in the preliminary stages of developing prequels and spinoffs. “We’ve written out story lines for various characters,” said Diesel. “We’ve been playing with it for a long time. It’s a very rich property and we’re committed to treating it with a lot of class.” The actor did not say which characters would get their own standalone films, but in the past, Dwayne Johnson has hinted that he’d like to see his character, Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs, branch out into independent adventures. If the actors are game for some universe building it sounds like the studio is willing to back the projects. Universal Pictures Chairman Donna Langley confirmed that talks were taking place about ways to broaden the series’ reach. “We’re certainly in conversations about how we can expand the franch

Michelle Rodriguez To Star In Tomboy

THR is reporting Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriguez will go under the knife for Tomboy , A Revenger's Tale, the gender-swapping action movie to be directed by Walter Hill. Sigourney Weaver is already on board to also star in the project, being produced by Said Ben Said (Map to the Stars) and Michel Merkt of SBS. The script, written by Hill from a story by Denis Hamill, centers on an ace assassin who is double-crossed by gangsters and falls into the hands of rogue surgeon known as "The Doctor," who turns him into a woman. The hitman (now a hitwoman) sets out for revenge, aided by a nurse named Johnnie, who also has secrets. Rodriguez is to play the hitman while Weaver is the scalpel-wielding doctor when the cameras roll Nov. 9 in Vancouver. The project initially made the rounds at TIFF and had Frieda Pinto involved. Pinto is no longer involved. The Solution Entertainment Group, co-founded by Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel, is handling international sales

Eva Mendes Rumored For Return in Eighth Fast and Furious

Dom’s family might get another member. By Brandon Wolfe The Fast and Furious franchise has made a wonderful habit of taking the characters from its largely disconnected initial trio of films and banding them all together as a unit, but one notable exception from Team Toretto has been Eva Mendes’ customs agent, Monica Fuentes, who played a major role in 2 Fast 2 Furious and popped up in a mid-credits bit in Fast Five , but has been MIA otherwise. That may change for the upcoming eighth film, according to an Instgram post from Latino Review’s El Mayimbe. "FAST & FURIOUS 8 #RUMOR With #fast7 now in the record books, the upcoming NY based #Fast8 story will depend on whether they can bring back Eva Mendes' character: US Customs Agent Monica Fuentes." The proposed idea for the currently-untitled Fast 8 is to take the team to the congested streets of New York City, and if this rumor pans out, it sounds like Mendes will be playing a crucial role in whatever Do

Trouble On The Set Of Fast & Furious 7

Sources say the actor has been so difficult that some on set have fantasized about using the facial-replacement technology being deployed to put Paul Walker in the film for Diesel as well. It's slow going on Universal's Fast & Furious 7 , and sources say it's not just because of the technical demands of re-creating late star Paul Walker. According to sources, star Vin Diesel has been so difficult that some on set have fantasized about using the facial-replacement technology being deployed to put Walker in the film as a sub for Diesel as well. "Vin spent a whole day in his trailer one day," says one insider. "The next day, they waited four hours for him. He called a meeting [May 28] of studio execs to his trailer for two-and-a-half hours to say, 'What the f— am I doing here?' " The next day, work was done with doubles. Another source confirms that progress has been frustrating, with the crew suffering from "low morale." Universal

Fast & Furious 7 Production For Has Started Back Up

Reeling from the tragic death last November of star Paul Walker , the team behind the seventh Fast & Furious film opted to put production on hiatus and shift the release date to 2015 to accommodate necessary changes. Now, via director James Wan’s Instagram account , we know that they’re back at work. With writer Chris Morgan handed the time to drastically alter the script and change the plot to account for the sudden disappearance of Walker’s character Brian O’Connor from the film, shooting has geared back up again in Abu Dhabi. There has been no statement from either Universal or regular F&F cheerleader Vin Diesel on what might be done to the film to work around Walker’s absence, and while rumours have surfaced about body doubles and CG to complete his scenes, nothing official has emerged. What we do know is that Diesel , alongside the current regular cast including Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez , will be around with more recent addit

Fast & Furious 6 Blu-ray Review. One Of The Best Of The Year

Fast & Furious 6  Blu-ray Review By: MattInRC Fast and Furious 6 is absolutely devilish entertainment on Blu-ray. And we're OK with that. Before I get into this review, let's get one thing straight: The Fast and The Furious films are not exactly The Italian Job, nor do they try to be. When you pay the big bucks to sit in a film like this, you know what you're going to get - implausible car chases that defy the laws of physics, bro-mance humor, and badass chicks driving fast cars while extras in skimpy clothes and knee-high boots dance behind them. And while it's not the smart, highly-detailed action/drama of a Skyfall , the franchise has matured over the years, settling in on fun action with enough story to keep things moving. As Fast and Furious 6 arrives on Blu-ray, the boys (and girls) are back with enough stunts and twists to satiate anyone's appetite, while every aspect of the Bu-ray release is nothing short of spectacular.

Production For Fast & Furious 7 Has Come To Complete Stop

The making of Fast & Furious 7 was happening on an accelerated pace to meet next summer’s July 11 release date, but now the movie has come to a complete stop. The unexpected and tragic car-crash death of Paul Walker has led Universal Pictures to put a hold on the movie in mid-production. Donna Langley, chairman of universal Pictures, told EW this week, “We have half a movie shot and we are working through it.” The studio has now decided to call a halt. “Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew and filmmakers,” a studio rep announced today in a statement. “At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise.” Of course, nothing matters as much as the loss of life from Saturday’s accident, which killed not only Walker but his fri

New Images From Fast & Furious 7

The Vin Diesel promotional bandwagon rolls ever onwards! As Fast & Furious 7 continues shooting, the ever-present, Facebook -loving star is back providing pics from the set. Today, he’s shown working with Jason Statham on the script and having a tender moment as Dom with Michelle Rodriguez ’ Letty. We firmly predict a pic-off between Diesel and fellow snap-happy promotion whirlwind Dwayne Johnson now that The Rock has rolled into Atlanta to start work as Luke Hobbs, but Diesel is well ahead on the FF7 stakes, having been shooting for weeks with director James Wan. In Fast & Furious 7, we find Dom, Letty, Brian ( Paul Walker ) and the rest of the gang charged with a new, legal mission – they’ve got to track down Statham’s Ian Shaw (at least, we think he’s called Ian – we’ve heard one other name), while Shaw is pulling off some criminal nastiness and seeking revenge for his brother Owen’s death in FF6. With Lucas Black back from Tokyo Drift and new recruits Kurt Ru
