Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Set to Make Return to FAST & FURIOUS Franchise

By Movieguide® Contributor

Movieguide® Award nominee Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced his return to work in the new Fast and Furious film.   

Johnson shared on his Twitter, “Luke Hobbs will be returning to the Fast & Furious franchise. Your reactions around the world to Hobbs’ return in Fast X have blown us away. The next Fast & Furious film you’ll see the legendary lawman in will be the HOBBS movie that will serve as a fresh, new chapter & set up for FASTX: Part II.”   

“Last summer Vin and I put all the past behind us. We’ll lead with brotherhood and resolve – and always take care of the franchise, characters & FANS that we love,” Johnson added.  

In 2021 Johnson told the Hollywood Reporter, “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.”   

However, Louis Leterrier, the brains behind FAST X told THR, “We reached out to Dwayne and his team, and said, ‘Just come and watch the movie. You have to love the movie first.’ So he came to see the movie and really loved it, and then we started talking,”  

A portion of Movieguide®’s review of FAST X reads:  

FAST X is a sequel to the FAST AND FURIOUS movie FAST FIVE. In FAST FIVE, Dom and his friends teamed up with a spy agency to bring down a Brazilian drug lord. In FAST X, the drug lord’s son hatches an elaborate revenge plot against Dom, his friends and family, to make them suffer for his father’s death. He lures Dom and his team to Rome, Italy, to frame them for a terrorist bombing. Meanwhile, the spy agency’s new head breaks ties with Dom’s team. How can Dom protect his son from the wrath of this mad avenger? 

FAST X contains some impressive action sequences. The chase sequence involving the bomb headed to Vatican City is very exciting. FAST X increases the personal stakes in the franchise by having the villain target Dom’s son. Cleverly, the filmmakers link Dom’s protection of his son with overt references to faith and Jesus. The movie promotes family, honor and sacrifice. FAST X has significantly less foul language than recent FAST & FURIOUS movies, but it’s still slightly excessive. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution.
