Vin Diesel’s latest Instagram post both features the new Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody and thanks his millions of Fast & Furious fans.
Fast & Furious 9 is currently in its 13th week of filming. We know this because filming began on June 24th in England and calendars exist, but also because the Furious star Vin Diesel told us so on his latest Instagram post.
Before we even get to see the famous baldy, we’re first treated to a shot of the brand new Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody done up in all black. That’s the new model that released earlier this summer featuring a Demon-inspired hood and a set of Demon wheels, although sadly not featuring the Demon’s 840-horsepower engine. It just has to make do with the 707-horsepower Hellcat motor. Womp womp.
But then, Diesel hops out of the car, grabs co-star Michelle Rodriguez, and the two share a heartfelt thanks at the camera for fans of the multi-billion-dollar film franchise.
We don't quite know the full plot for Fast 9, but we're pretty sure that it will involve cars, combat, and explosions. A previous set of Instagram posts showcased on-set images of filming in Georgia where Vin Diesel was seen fighting against John Cena on the back of a military-style big rig truck. Nevermind the fact that the military doesn't use trucks like that--it looked cool, and that's what counts.
We also saw a 2020 Toyota Supra in the same color orange as the original MkIV Supra that Paul Walker drove in the first film, along with a Black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T also from the first film.
The villain (or at least henchmen) seemed to be driving a white Chevy Nova since someone inside was shooting at the black Charger in one of the scenes. Unfortunately, all those posts have since been taken down.
Fast & Furious 9 is expected to hit theatres on May 22nd, which is insane considering it now takes less than a year to film and edit these movies.
