Fast and Furious franchise stars Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez have started shooting for Fast and Furious 9. Vin Diesel shared a video on his Instagram handle with a caption, “First day completed! Blessed beyond words. #Fast9 2020”
In the video, the two thanked fans of the series for their support. Diesel said, “We just completed our first day. It feels like a miracle, one hard-earned, but we’re just so grateful.”
Vin Diesel can be seen sporting Toretto’s attire in the video. Michelle Rodriguez confirmed her presence in the cast recently after a female writer was brought on board the writer’s team. This was a condition set by Michelle to rejoin the franchise. She plays Letty Ortiz in the film and has been a part of the franchise since the first movie.
