(Pocket-lint) - Dominic Toretto and his crew have been tearing up the streets for over two decades and while the Fast and Furious films have changed significantly over the years - with both the plots and the stunts having become more extreme - it's a franchise that is still going strong some 21 years after the first film was released.

The most recent film - Fast 9 - was released in 2021 and now all eyes are on Fast and Furious 10 - known as Fast X. 

This is everything we know so far about part one of the two-part finale that will conclude the Fast Saga, including when it is expected to be released, who is expected to be in it and all the news surrounding it.

Fast and Furious 10 release date: When is Fast X likely to come out?

  • 19 May, 2023

It was initially confirmed by Universal that Fast and Furious 10, or Fast X as it is officially known now, would arrive in cinemas on 7 April 2023. 

This date has now been pushed back slightly however, with the new date confirmed to be 19 May 2023. 

Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto) confirmed on his Instagram account on 20 April that filming had started, whilst also confirming the title of the film. A week into filming, director Justin Lin quit and while a new director was appointed a week after Lin announced he was stepping back, it's not yet clear if this will cause delays.

Fast X cast: Who is expected to return for Fast and Furious 10?

It wouldn't be right to have a Fast and Furious finale without most of the core crew right? And yes, some of them are no longer alive - Gisele for example - but that hasn't stopped the Fast Saga finding a way to bring key characters back in the past. Yes Han, we're talking about you.

Brian O'Connor will very sadly be harder to do this with of course, given Paul Walker's tragic death in November 2013, but O'Connor lives on in the Saga so he will no doubt be mentioned at the very least and who knows with technology these days what the directors could do to keep O'Connor's character shining bright in this film.

With none of the core crew dying in Fast 9, we expect the following cast members to return for Fast X:

  • Vin Diesel as Dom
  • Michelle Rodriguez as Letty
  • Tyrese Gibson as Roman
  • Ludacris as Tej
  • Nathalie Emmanuel as Ramsey
  • Sung Kang as Han
  • Jordana Brewster as Mia

Charlize Theron has confirmed her return to the Fast Saga, meaning Cipher will return as the villian. We wouldn't be surprised to see Jason Statham return as Deckard Shaw, given he appeared in the credits of Fast 9, and his mother, Magdalene 'Queenie' Shaw played by Helen Mirren, would also be a surprising omission.

Given Fast 9 introduced Dom's brother Jakob Toretto, played by John Cena, to the party, we'd expect he could return in some capacity too - and on the good side from the start rather than the baddie side for Fast X. 

Fast 9 left My Nobody's (Kurt Russell) fate in question but as he is the reason Han is alive thanks to his help faking his death, we expect he will have some role to play for the finale. It's been confirmed that Little Nobody (Scott Eastwood) will be back though. Sadly it looks like a return of Dwayne Johnson - aka The Rock - who played Luke Hobbs in several of the Fast and Furious films isn't on the cards.

Jason Momoa, Daniela Melchior and Brie Larson have all been confirmed for Fast X, though currently we don't know their roles other than Momoa will be a villain. Alan Ritchson has also been confirmed as one of the villians.

What is expected to happen in Fast X?

It's difficult to say what the storyline for Fast X will be at the moment. The last two movies are expected to tell an overarching story, though at the moment, it is unclear what that story will focus on.

Dom's crew will no doubt be saving the world and Cipher will no doubt be trying to destroy it, but who will be on what side and what the characters will get up to is anyone's guess for now. With Fast 9 seeing Tej and Roman go to space though, let's be honest, anything is possible.

We suspect we will find out if Mr Nobody is dead or alive and the credits sequence of Fast 9 suggests the story of Han and Shaw could be prominent in the next film, but we will have to wait and see for now where the finale goes with that.

Is there a Fast X trailer?

There is no trailer for the Fast X film as yet - it's still a little early. We'd recommend following Vin Diesel on Instagram as he often shares behind the scenes footage from filming so you'll likely be able to get a little taste over the coming months. He's already posted a video from the first week of filming.

When Fast 9 was expected in June 2020, a trailer was released in January 2020, six months before. It's therefore unlikely we will see a Fast X trailer before November 2022.

Fast X news: Everything we have heard so far

20 April 2022: Vin Diesel said the initial script for the Fast 10 film didn't include Mia Toretto and his daughter told the director "No Mia, No Fast 10". Given Brewster is confirmed for Fast X, it obviously had an impact.

20 April 2022: Vin Diesel confirms Fast and Furious 10 filming has started and the film will be called Fast X.

10 April 2022: Vin Diesel confirms Captain Marvel's Brie Larson will join be part of the Fast and Furious 10 film. "You have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology. Beyond her beauty, her intellect… her Oscar, haha is this profound soul who will add something you might not have expected but yearned for. Welcome to the FAMILY Brie."

21 July 2021: Talking about his future in the Fast and Furious films, Dwayne Johnson said: "I wish them well on Fast 9. And I wish them the best of luck on Fast 10 and Fast 11 and the rest of the Fast & Furious movies they do that will be without me."

26 June 2021: Vin Diesel told the Metro: "We've been working on 10 for the last year, so I have so much to share and I'm holding back. I know that one of the things Justin wants to do is to film on all seven continents, which I think is pretty spectacular, as a homage to the world that's adopted this saga as their own.

He added: "I think you're going to be pretty shocked when you see Fast 10. It might not necessarily be because of a certain place that we go, but there's something special coming that I'm so excited about. I can't tell you, but I wish I could."

20 October 2020: Deadline reported that Justin Lin, who has directed five of the Fast and Furious films, will direct the final two.

What about Fast 11?

In October 2020, it was revealed that Justin Lin would direct the last two films of the Fast and Furious franchise, though Lin then quit as director a week into filming Fast X so it's likely he won't do Fast 11 either. Tyrese Gibson - who plays Roman - previously said the plan was to shoot Fast and Furious 10 and Fast and Furious 11 back-to-back. Louis Leterrier will step into the director position but it is not yet known if the schedule will remain the same.

There's currently no word on a release date for Fast and Furious 11, though if the two films are shot back-to-back, hopefully we won't have to wait too long after Fast X before we get the second part of the finale. It's still likely to be 2024 though given we won't see Fast X until May 2023.
