Okay Fast and full of energy fans, are you ready for one more ride with this team – sorry, family – of rebel street racing superheroes? They face drug cartels, terrorists, special forces teams, crime special forces team, and a spoiled kid driving a Honda S2000. They jump cars across skyscrapers, get out of planes, stop airplanes, and even flew the Pontiac Fiero into space. What might happen next?
The full answer to that question comes in May, when the tenth film hits Fast the franchise reaches theaters. For now, we only know him as X fast, and thanks to a teaser photo recently shared online, we know the first trailer for the film is just 10 days away. Circle February 10th on your calendar, because it marks the beginning of the end of the road that began… wait, where are we?
Actually, we know very little about this film. We know that Brie Larson and Jason Momoa have joined the cast, playing the roles of Tess (Larson) and Dante (Momoa). Whether they’re the good guys or the bad guys is unclear at this point, but we do know the previous lead baddie Cipher (played by Charlize Theron) will be returning.
Rumors also suggested Gal Gadot would return to the franchise as Gisele, but that hasn’t been confirmed and she isn’t currently listed with the cast on Internet Movie Database (IMDB). Gisele was presumed dead at the end Hurry 6, although he technically disappeared into the darkness without being seen again. Considering Sung Kang’s character, Han was brought back after being blown up Tokyo Drift, bringing back Gisele should be a cakewalk. And yes, Sung Kang is listed as part of X fast cast.
We also know that the film has experienced several controversies during its production. Veteran franchise director Justin Lin stepped down from the role last April, allegedly due to creative differences with Vin Diesel. Lin is credited as writer and remains as producer, leaving directing duties to Louis Leterrier.
That Fast and full of energy the franchise was expected to finish after the 11th film. Judging by the wording in this teaser, it looks like the finale will span the span of two films. We’ll get to experience it on February 10th when the first video trailer drops.
