“Fast & Furious 10” Will Roar Into Theaters in April 2023
The franchise does not appear to be slowing down.
After F9 helped jumpstart the theatrical box office this summer with a big haul both domestically and internationally, it should surprise absolutely no one that F10 is in the works. Entertainment Weekly broke the news about the release date, revealing that Fast & Furious 10 is set to roar into theaters on April 7, 2023, with Justin Lin back to direct. Vin Diesel had revealed to EW previously that Fast 10 and 11 could possibly be filmed back-to-back, putting this venerable franchise, after more than two decades, over the finish line. “Just wait for 10,” Diesel told EW. “Let’s just say, the fact that you guys know that the studio is saying we can’t cover all this ground that needs to be covered in just one movie, you can only imagine what is to come.”
Likely joining Diesel in F10 are franchise stalwarts Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, and Sung Kang. Newcomer John Cena hasn’t said whether his character, Jakob Toretta (brother to Diesel’s Dom) will return, and it’s been widely reported that Dwayne Johnson is out. But there’s one other big name likely making his return—spoiler alert—Jason Statham’s Deckward Shaw. If you caught F9 and stuck around for the mid-credits scene then you saw Statham’s surprise return, and the promise of a showdown between his Deckard Shaw and Sung Kang’s Han.
Despite all the insane stunts in F9, the franchise thrives off a can-you-top-this mentality, which means that, somehow, F10 will be even crazier. This is despite the fact that F9 saw two members of Dom’s family—with Tej (Chris Bridges, aka Ludacris) and Roman (Tyrese Gibson) get launched into flippin’ space.
