The 'Fast and Furious 10' Release Date is Out. Here's what we know so far

Hollywood’s zooming car franchise, Fast and Furious, has entertained the crowds for 20 years now. With its ninth edition’s release this year, the movies have earned the title of the most amusing car stunts. This, however, is not the end of the road, with two movies still in store for its fans, the franchise just announced the release date for its 10th installment.

When will ‘Fast and Furious 10’ hit the theaters?

Universal Pictures recently announced that the movie will release on April 7, 2023, Entertainment Weekly first reported. The movie is expected to go on floors in January 2022, with a possibility of both the movies being shot back to back.

Vin Diesel, who has led the movies as Dominic Toretto, had teased to EW in an earlier interview that the tenth movie would be even bigger than the others so far.  

“Just wait for 10,” Diesel said. “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.”

F9, the ninth movie in the Fast and Furious franchise released to a massive opening earlier this year. Despite the pandemic, the movie saw the highest opening weekend after Star Wars: The Rise of Luke Skywalker in 2019. 

With the success of the movie this year, the producers and actors took no time to get back in action for the next movie.

What do we know about ‘Fast and Furious 10’ so far

The movie will be helmed by Justin Lin who also directed the third movie in the series, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Most of the franchise veterans like Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Sung Kang, Chris Bridges, and Tyrese Gibson are expected to return for the film.

John Cena, who made his debut in the franchise as Jakob Toretto in F9 this year, has not been confirmed. Ahead of the movie’s release this year he had said that he was not focusing on the future of his character. Another Fast veteran Dwayne Johnson, however, is not expected to return for any of the remaining two films owing to his feud with Diesel.

Jason Statham could return in the tenth movie as well. Statham played the role of Deckard Shaw, Diesel’s enemy in Furious 7, and then became a recurring member of the team. If the mid-credit scene of the ninth movie is to be believed, the next movie might pit Shaw against Han. 

Who is the mystery Gal?

The biggest surprise that came from Sung Kang, who plays Han, was in his reaction to the mid-credit scene. “I think there’s just one word — Gisele,” 

What he is referring to, here, is Gal Gadot’s character and Han’s girlfriend Gisele, who died in the sixth movie. It is interesting to note that she met her death while trying to stop Owen Shaw’s gang from taking off on a plane. Thus creating an obvious rift between her boyfriend Han and Owen Shaw’s brother Deckard. The sixth movie’s credit scene had anyway clarified that, in the end, it was Deckard Shaw who killed Han in Tokyo. What remains to be seen is what went down between them. 

Here Kang’s answer, “All roads lead to Gisele,” is a curious hint at the possible return of Gadot in Han and Deckard’s story. 

Whether Gadot will return for the movie and what will happen between Han and Shaw, we’ll only know that on April 7, 2023.
