Buckle Up: Jason Momoa Takes the Wheel as Dante Reyes!
The Fast & Furious franchise is revving up for its latest adrenaline-fueled installment, and fans are eagerly anticipating the high-octane action that the series is known for. Fast X promises to be no exception, with a star-studded cast, heart-pumping stunts, and a riveting storyline that has been teased since the release of its first official trailer.
One of the most exciting aspects of the film is the involvement of Jason Momoa, who was given the opportunity to perform his own driving stunts alongside his co-stars. Momoa couldn’t contain his excitement about participating in a street race through the cobblestone streets of Rome, where the centuries-old wear and tear provided the perfect conditions for hair-raising, tire-squealing thrills.
But it’s not just the high-speed action that has fans buzzing. The film’s storyline promises to be one of the most thrilling yet, as Dominic and Dante’s Rio race takes center stage. Dante, seeking revenge for the death of his drug kingpin father at the hands of Dominic and Brian O’Conner, enlists the help of cyberterrorist Cipher to take Dom’s family across the world and even the score. Michelle Rodriguez, who stars alongside Vin Diesel, has hinted that Dante could be the biggest baddie the franchise has ever seen.
Behind the scenes, the film has undergone some changes, with French filmmaker Louis Leterrier taking over the director’s chair from Justin Lin. Leterrier has put his own stamp on the film, making significant changes to Lin’s script. However, Lin still maintains his writing and production credits on the movie.
Fast X is the first part of a two-part finale for the Fast & Furious franchise, with the second film currently in development. With a budget of $340 million, it’s one of the most expensive movies ever made, and its creators will undoubtedly be hoping for a big box-office return.
All in all, Fast X promises to be an action-packed ride that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats. Mark your calendars for May 19th, when the film hits theaters and revs its engines for the ultimate thrill ride.
