Suicide Squad star Scott Eastwood will return to the Fast and Furious franchise for the series’ upcoming installment, Fast X.
Back in 2017, Scott Eastwood made his Fast and Furious debut in the franchise’s 8th installment, The Fate of the Furious or F8. In the film, the actor portrayed a character who was known to the team as Little Nobody. Working under Kurt Russell’s Mr. Nobody, Eastwood’s character was a stickler for the rule which put him at odds with the rest of the characters in the film. Eventually, he came around and they all came to an understanding.
In the sequel, F9, Scott Eastwood’s Little Nobody was missing from the cast. Similarly, Mr. Nobody only appeared in a set of flashbacks and it is currently unknown if Kurt Russell will reprise his role for the upcoming film. However, we now know that, at the very least, Eastwood will be returning to the part.
A recent report from The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Scott Eastwood will be returning to the role of Little Nobody for Fast X. If Kurt Russell opts not to return to the Fast and Furious franchise, the character could very well reveal what became of him. It is currently unknown how big of a role he will have in the film.
Here is the synopsis for the latest film in the franchise, F9: The Fast Saga:
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, this 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.
The upcoming installment, Fast X, is being directed by Louis Leterrier and stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Michael Rooker, Charlize Theron, Jason Momoa, Daniela Melchior, Brie Larson, Scott Eastwood and Alan Ritchson.
Fast X will hit theaters on May 19, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming film and the future of the Fast and Furious franchise and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
