Since its first appearance in the 2001s The Fast and the FuriousDominic Toretto, the main character of the franchise business played by Vin Diesel, has established himself as the over-alpha male of the group of daring secret agents. It’s hard to imagine that such a tough character would have a relative who might be even tougher. But in Fast & Furious 9, that’s exactly what we get.
The trailer for F9 promises exactly such a person John Cena takes on the role of Jakob, Dom’s vengeful younger brother. In an interview with EW, Diesel explained why Cena was the perfect actor for the role of Jakob.
“I felt like [director]Justin [Lim] did; The casting of this character could go a million different routes. And at the same time a very, very, very difficult character to cast. Because of this, you have to walk with your stomach, you have to walk with your heart, and when I met John he checked all the boxes. He had an energy that aroused a kind of curiosity about all torettos. He just felt right. And he did a great job. “
From the trailer for F9It is clear that no love is lost between Dom and Jakob. In fact, the main motivation for Jakob seems to be to kill Dom by whatever means necessary, even if it means joining the super terrorist cipher. This type of relationship is in sharp contrast to the rest of the franchise, which has always emphasized the importance of family ties. According to Diesel F9 I will continue to delve into this subject while shedding light on Dom’s mysterious past.
“Family is at the heart of Fast & Furious, and how you explore and play with that makes an interesting franchise. One of the compelling aspects of Fast is that backstory, which we got to know literally 20 years ago that always wanted a coat of the We always wanted to know a little more about the origins. And I think a franchise needs to have the right to dig into a backstory, and I hope Fast & Furious did just that. I have the feeling that the instinct or the desire to get into the backstory, almost the original story, was something convincing for everyone. “
Vin Diesel also revealed that F9 will be the penultimate film in the main Fast & Furious Franchise, with the next film split in two for an epic conclusion to the story of Dom and his crew. It remains to be seen whether Dom will use the time he has left to go to war against his younger brother, or whether Dom and Jakob will eventually team up to take over Cipher.
Directed by Justin Lim, F9 Stars like Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel and Sung Kang with Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron and Cardi B. The film comes in theaters on May 28 News at Weekly entertainment.
