The ninth installment of Fast and Furious will land in theaters this year. But what can we expect from this film directed by Justin Lin? Actors, history, release date… We tell you everything in this article.
Fast and Furious 8 was released four years ago. In the meantime, however, we had a spin-off to chew on, Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw having tumbled in 2019. As its name suggests, it focused in particular on the characters of Deckard Shaw and Luke Hobbs. Two years later, we are about to discover F9. And based on early reviews, Fast and Furious 9 should be a lot of fun to watch.
While waiting for its release, here is everything we already know about this ninth chapter. Let it be said, the tires should still squeal on the asphalt!

Fast and Furious 9: when to release?
Fast and Furious 9 was supposed to burst into theaters on May 20, 2020. Due to the coronavirus, it was finally postponed to March 31, 2021. However, this date almost coincided with that planned for Die can wait, the new James Bond. Universal has therefore finally decided to postpone the release date of Fast and Furious 9 to May 26, 2021.
And the schedule continues to be turned upside down by Universal Pictures, which wishes to capitalize as much as possible on the reopening of theaters closed during the pandemic. Fast and Furious 9 will thus finally be released on June 25 in the United States. French spectators will have to wait two more weeks since the film will be released on July 14 in France.
Changes in release dates at the start of the week: Presidents of Anne Fontaine is postponed to June 30, 2021 and Fast & Furious 9 will be released in France on July 14, 2021

Fast and Furious 9 : quel scénario ?
Dom Toretto flows peaceful days away from the swaying waterfalls, taking the time to enjoy Letty and Brian, their son. They suspect, however, that the threat is never really far away. To save his family, Dom will indeed have to do battle with his demons of yesteryear. In doing so, he will assemble his team to bypass a global conspiracy. Which is fomented by a powerful opponent who is none other than Jakob, his abandoned little brother. And the task promises to be complicated since this one is as good behind the wheel as the weapon in hand.
Asked by Total Film, Vin Diesel agreed to say more about one of the main narrative issues of the feature film: “The theme that we have developed so far was the family that you form with people from all walks of life, in short the family out of blood”. So, “What makes Fast 9’s story so compelling is how this altruistic concept might overlook the blood-defined family. This is the direction in which this story is moving ”.
Also note the return of Han Lue’s character, who was thought to have died in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift. In this regard, director Justin Lin explains to MTV:
“I won’t go into details or anything, but I assure you I don’t take bringing it back lightly at all – and it took a long time – but I think what I appreciate that is that this universe has really grown and that it allows us to evolve and redefine ourselves in a way as we move forward. In the world of Fast, everything happens for a good reason. “
Fast and Furious 9 : quel casting ?
We will obviously find Vin Diesel in the role of Dominic Toretto as well as John Cena who will play Jakob. The cast will also consist of Michelle Rodriguez (Letty “Ortiz” Toretto), Jordana Brewster (Mia) and Tyrese Gibson (Roman Pearce). It will also be necessary to count on Ludacris who will play the role of Tej Parker, Charlize Theron (Cipher) and Nathalie Emmanuel (Ramsey).
Fast and Furious 9 will also feature rapper Cardi B, Peaky Blinders star, Finn Cole, Anna Sawai and Vinnie Bennett. Their roles have not been revealed. Note the notable absence of Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson, who could however return in Fast and Furious 10. As explained above, the character of Han will thus make a comeback in the franchise. He will be played by Sung Kang.
This ninth opus will be resolutely placed under the sign of the family. Vincent Sinclair, 10 years old and son of Vin Diesel, will also be credited in the credits. He will play the role of Dom Toretto as a child.
