Vin Diesel has just revealed that Cardi B has joined the cast of Fast and Furious 9.
Diesel revealed the massive casting reveal in his usual nonchalant way: dropping a video blog from the Fast 9 set. In the video we see Diesel looking very tired after a long day of shooting, seated up next to Diesel on what looks to be a boat or train. Cardi seems just as tired as Vin, which suggests she indeed put in the work filming her portion of the hit action franchise.
Check out what Cardi B had to say in Vin Diesel’s vlog post:
Filming on Fast and Furious 9 still hasn’t finished, although Vin Diesel and Cardi B both appear to be exhausted. The movie is set to be the penultimate one in the franchise, as Vin Diesel has stated that he was committed to making 10 (not counting spin-offs) as part of an agreement with the late Aaron Paul, who co-starred in most entries in the franchise prior to his passing. Multiple spin-offs are being planned for the series, with Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw being the first. A female-led movie also being developed, which is expected to star Jordana Brewster.
With Fast & Furious 9 Cardi B joins as cast that includes returning cast members Michelle Rodriguez, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, as well as Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron. Newcomers include Finn Cole, Michael Rooker, Amber Sienna, and John Cena.
