CHICAGO — The man who’s been at the center of the “Fast and Furious” franchise since it began 20 years ago, Vin Diesel, talked to WGN’s Dean Richards about how it has felt to evolve and grow through all nine of the movies.
He also talked about how much longer he thinks the saga should go — one that he started with the late Paul Walker who he calls Pablo.
In this new installment, WWE superstar John Cena gets behind the wheel as the estranged brother of vin diesel out to settle an old score.
In a Zoom chat with Cena, Dean wondered if the levels of dangerous stunts was higher or lower than he’s used to in the ring.
The former wrestler had also just heard that the City of Chicago had lifted most of its COVID-19 restrictions and congratulated the city on its progress.
Dean also talked to Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris who, once again, provide the comic relief in the movie. The two shared one thing about the other that people may be surprised to know.
The director of the “Fast and Furious” movies shared a ballpark number of how many cars they destroy for the films.
“F9: Fast and Furious 9″ opens in theaters Friday.
