Follow Deadline, on November 7, Vin Diesel wrote on his personal page: “My brother Dwayne, the time has come. The world is waiting for part 10 of the series. Fast & Furious.

Diesel said he will fulfill his promise to Pablo (the late Paul Walker) about bringing the brand to success. Diesel continued to message The Rock: “I swear the crew will hit the top and make the best 10. I say these things with love but you have to show up. Don’t leave this franchise when you have a character. It’s important to play. Hobbs can’t let anyone else play. I hope you surpass yourself and fulfill your mission.”
