WWE star John Cena joins the cast of the Fast and the Furious franchise after he had expressed his interest to star in the movies last year. Cena has joined an all-star cast that is expected to see Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, and Nathalie Emmanuel reprise their roles from the previous installments.
However, the movie might bring some disappointment to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s fans. According to multiple media reports, Johnson might not be returning to the franchise, leaving the responsibility on the shoulders of his fellow WWE star.
The movie is slated to release on May 22, 2020, whereas the production will be starting later this month. While The Rock’s involvement in Fast and Furious 9 has yet to be confirmed, he will next be seen in Hobbs & Shaw spinoff, which is due to be released on August 2.
For nearly 20 years, the Fast Franchise has entertained fans and created some of the biggest cinematic moments in history. It’s an incredible honor to join this franchise and this family. https://t.co/7GFzDsX8sl
