Justin Lin Confirms ‘Fast and Furious 9’ Is Nearly Finished

The family is nearly ready to return.

Fast and Furious 9 is nearly finished according to director Justin Lin, who returned after directing four earlier chapters in the franchise.

Although fans still have a few months to wait until Justin Lin’s Fast and Furious 9 arrives in theaters due to the ongoing pandemic, the director recently confirmed that the latest chapter in the series is nearly finished. He took to Instagram to thank the crew for their work on the film, praising their efforts throughout the turbulent times of the last few months. And after stars like Ludacris and Michelle Rodriguez teased that Fast and Furious 9 is heading to space, there’s no doubt that fans are excited to see what’s in store for the next sequel.

Justin Lin confirmed that the sound mix for Fast and Furious 9 has been finished in the new behind-the-scenes shot. With an action-packed franchise like this, there’s likely still some visual effects that need working on before it’s ready for the May 28, 2021 release date. The director previously joined the series with Tokyo Drift, before adding another three sequels under his belt. Lin will also return to direct the tenth and eleventh films in the franchise, which Vin Diesel has previously teased will be a two-part story. For now, take a look at the director talking about Fast and Furious 9 below.

Are you excited to see Justin Lin’s Fast and Furious 9? How do you think the team will head into space during the film? Where should the series end? Sound-off in the comments below!

Here is the official synopsis for Vin Diesel’s Fast and Furious 9.

 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).

F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tblisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.

Directed Justin Lin from a script written by Daniel Casey, Fast and Furious 9 stars Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Cardi B and Sung Kang, with Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron.

Fast and Furious 9 will be released in theaters on May 28, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the future of the franchise and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content in the future!
