John Cena Officially Part Of Fast & Furious Franchise

John Cena Officially Part Of Fast & Furious Franchise

There had been speculation on Cena joining the movie after actor Vin Diesel posted a teaser to Instagram back in April.

While we are extremely happy to know that John has joined this ensemble, reports suggest that Dwayne Johnson will not be a part of the franchise as he is already working in the spin-off of the franchise, Hobbs and Shaw. That's not hard to imagine in the slightest given John Cena's reputation and some of his previous roles, but that'll nonetheless make him a good fit for the next Fast and Furious movie. Dwayne Johnson, we hear, will not be in Fast & Furious 9.

All told, the pulse-pounding franchise - which has fielded eight films in 18 years - has grossed north of $5.1 billion dollars at the worldwide box office. Deadline went on to mention that Cena will be playing a "badass".

John Cena has commented on landing a role in one of the biggest films thus far in his acting career.

It looks like John Cena is in and The Rock is out.

Director Justin Lin, who helmed Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6, is back to direct the final two entries in the main saga of this franchise, which is planning to conclude after ten films.

According to Deadline, production starts later this month for a May 22nd, 2020 release.
