As F9 nears the release date in May 2020, the talks about the inevitable 10th and final chapter of the franchise are beginning to shape up. It is apparent that the franchise will end on a very high note. There are rumors that the final film will be a two-parter with a long story finally giving closure to the family that Toretto managed to form over the course of many films.
One of the biggest topics that trades are discussing is who will join the final chapter of the franchise. There were really cool villains, many side characters, and main heroes who appeared in various entries of the series. The main quartet consisting of Michelle Rodrigez, Ludacris, Vin Diesel, and Jordana Brewster will most likely stay intact. Since Han is apparently back, we may expect him to join the crew in the final chapter.
However, there are also Helen Mirren, The Rock, and Jason Statham who are also prominent players in the franchise. While Diesel and Dwayne Johnson had their arguments and even a couple of twitter fights, they can set their differences aside for the final big bang.
Some of the actors expressed their ideas about possible additions to the cast. For example, Rodriguez commented on the possibility of asking Matt Damon to join the franchise for its final outing. She said that she very much likes him as an actor yet doubts that he will do something as silly as what they are doing on the set of F9. The Fast & Furious franchise is already lit by a myriad of superstars so having Matt Damon is within reason.
Ludacris said that he would like to see another Hollywood A-lister joining the crew. He suggested asking Denzel Washington. The latter is known for his tough-guy image shown in The Equalizer and The Book of Eli amongst many others.
Brewster expressed her desire to work alongside Marion Cotillard. The French actress is definitely a very recognizable face for the US audiences despite working mostly in Europe. Her significant roles in Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, Contagion, and many other popular Hollywood films make her a very good candidate for the F&F franchise.
