Vin Diesel might’ve sneaked in a clue about the Fast & Furious movie franchise in an otherwise innocuous Instagram post.
Diesel might’ve used little Vin Diesel to tip off the title of the next Fast & Furious movie. More specifically, Diesel could’ve used young Vincent Sinclair’s hair for the hint. In the photo, the young boy had FX shaved into the side of his head. X is the Roman numeral version of 10. The last Fast & Furious movie was F9: The Fast Saga. It was distributed by Universal Pictures.
Vin Diesel used the caption to share much deeper thoughts, i.e. potential clues. Check out what he wrote:
“That excitement is real… the emotions strong. Haha. Hope, somehow perseveres in this multi generational saga. 10… the final chapter. A divine number, 10 means a return to unity, the fusion between being and non-being. The number 10 denotes the completion of a cycle.
“So proud of Universal, the incredible team of talent we are blessed to have on this journey. Grateful for it all and most importantly for all of you.”
Plus, also know that Vincent was in F9, playing the younger version of Dominic Toretto, his father’s character. And, Ludacris, who also stars in the FF franchise, replied to Diesel’s cryptic post. The rapper/actor typed “X” Big hmmm.
So What Is Vin Diesel Up to These Days?
This past weekend, Diesel was in Italy leading up to the Venice Film Festival. Legendary actress Helen Mirren, who was in F9, posted a photo showing her dancing with Diesel. A ton of stars were there this weekend, including Diesel and Mirren, to attend the fashion show for Dolce & Gabbana’s 2021 Alta Moda collection.
“I danced in the rain with VIN DIESEL!” wrote the 76-year-old Mirren.
F10 — or is it FX? — already has a release date, barring any pushbacks. It’s scheduled to hit theaters, April 7, 2023.
Earlier this summer, Diesel said production would start in January 2022, for both F10 and F11. In an interview with Regal Cinemas. Later in January, Diesel told E! News that the daughter of the late Paul Walker also could have a role in the movie. Diesel is the godfather of Meadow Walker, who is now 22.
“I would not count anything out,” Diesel said. “Let me just — without giving you all of the secrets of Fast 10. Let’s just say nothing’s ruled out.”
Rapper Cardi B, who was in F9, also is expected in F10.
And maybe Vincent will return to play a young Dominic in F10. He certainly knows the right hairstyle for the movie. Director Justin Lin cast him in the last movie.
“We’ve been making these movies for so long, that every time one of my children were born, I was usually working on a Fast and Furious movie,” Vin Diesel told Jimmy Fallon in an appearance on the late-night show . “So the director and the cast all have their own relationship with my children. And it was [Lin’s] idea for my son to play young Dom.”
