Khal Drogo himself - Jason Momoa - will be playing the villain in the next Fast & Furious movie.
Momoa, who has previously played superhero Aquaman, will be sinking his teeth into something more deliciously evil, and we can’t wait to see what he cooks up.
He told Entertainment Weekly yesterday (March 2) that he can’t wait to play the bad guy once again.
“I'm gonna go do 'Fast 10,' that's gonna be fun... it's fun, I get to play the bad guy, which I haven't gotten to do for a while. Now, I get to be the bad boy. A very flamboyant bad boy.”
Momoa was very tight-lipped about his upcoming role but revealed that his ‘flamboyant’ character would clash heads with Dominic Toretto’s crew in Fast & Furious 10.
And though the new addition to the team is incredibly exciting, the rest of the cast has been kept relatively hush hush, as very little is known about the new actors joining the cast. However, Justin Lin, who previously directed F9, will be returning to direct the tenth film in the franchise and writer Chris Morgan is also onboard.
Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Sung Kang and Nathalie Emmanuel are also set to reprise their roles in the upcoming action flick with shooting taking place in London.
Initially, the tenth Fast & Furious film was set to be released in early April of last year. However, production was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the film's release subsequently being pushed back to February 2023 before being delayed to April 7, 2023. Now it’s set to be released theatrically May 19, 2023.
For the first time in the franchise, the film will be broken into two parts, with the second part set to be released the following year in 2024.
Vin Diesel spoke to Comicbook.com about the film’s back to back releases: “The target release date is 02/23 for the first one and 02/24 for the second one. We were supposed to release this movie last year, prior to the pandemic. So I guess what's different about this release is that we're a year into development and pre-production on Fast 10. And so I'm doing these interviews and it's bizarre because I have to go back to Fast 9. I'm celebrating the release of Fast 9, but I have so much more to celebrate."
