The late Fast & Furious star Paul Walker would have been 46 yesterday, and Dwayne Johnson decided to mark the occasion.
Filming on 'Fast & Furious 9' has been stopped after a stuntman fell on the film's set and suffered a serious head injury.
Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren are strapping back into the “Fast & Furious” franchise, with franchise star Vin Diesel saying Monday that the two Oscar-winning actresses are on set for “Fast & Furious 9.”The ninth entry is currently filming in London, and Diesel teased the new cast additions in an Instagram post.“We’ve got a lot of the original cast here, including Oscar winners like Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren, including John Cena, who I believe is going to completely shine in this movie,” Diesel said.Also Read: 'Hobbs & Shaw' Trailer Pits Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham Against 'Black Superman' Idris Elba (Video)Cena was previously reported as the newest addition to the all-star action cast for “Fast & Furious 9,” but Theron and Mirren making their returns comes as a surprise. Theron joined the franchise during 2017’s “Fate of the Furious” as the cyberterrorist Cipher, who managed to get Dom (Diesel) to betray his family and do her bidding.Mirren also made a cameo in that film as the mother to Deckard (Jason Statham) and Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), and she’ll also have a more prominent role in the “Fast & Furious” spinoff “Hobbs and Shaw” arriving later this summer.Diesel also accidentally mispronounced John Cena’s name as John “Senna,” noting his mistake in his Instagram post.Also Read: Tyrese Gibson in Talks to Join Jared Leto in Sony Marvel Movie 'Morbius'Justin Lin is also returning to the franchise to direct “Fast & Furious 9” from a script by Dan Casey, which will speed into theaters on May 22, 2020.Check out Diesel’s Instagram video below:View this post on Instagram Week 3!

Ever since Dave Bautista's brooding turn in Blade Runner 2049, he's shown that he's got rather more range than your average wrestler turned movie star.
Dom Toretto can breathe a sigh of relief – it appears that he's not lost one of his key crew-members after all.
The producer of the Fast & Furious movies has been fired from the forthcoming spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, and all future movies in the series.
The star of Crazy Rich Asians and Star Trek: Discovery will play the role of scientist Dr. Karina Mogue, per the film's official Twitter account.
It was only months after the death of Paul Walker that his brothers Caleb and Cody stepped in, to help film unfinished scenes in ‘Fast & Furious 7’. “I always wanted to be like him growing up, so stepping into his shoes was special, but it was too soon,” Caleb told the Dr. Oz Show.
Stars' separation will be most obvious Wednesday at CinemaCon, where Diesel, Charlize Theron, and the rest of cast will be on hand, but Johnson will not.
This Friday, 20 January, sees the release of ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage,’ third film in the extreme sports spy series, and the first time Vin Diesel has played the title role since the 2002 original (Ice Cube took over for the 2005 sequel, and will also appear in the new one). Diesel is of course no stranger to sequels, having reprised ‘Pitch Black’ anti-hero Riddick twice, and most famously his ‘Fast & Furious’ role Dominic Toretto on six occasions (including the upcoming ‘Fast & Furious 8,’ and his brief cameo in third film ‘Tokyo Drift’). A 12 year gap between movies – and a 15 year gap between performances for the leading man – is substantial, but Diesel certainly isn’t the only action star to return to a signature role after upwards of a decade.
When the cast of the 1998 WWII movie was sent to boot camp to prepare by Steven Spielberg, things almost went spectacularly pear-shaped. “It was the worst experience of my life,” said Edward Burns, remembering his time in a Hertfordshire boot camp while sitting a few months later on the set of ‘Saving Private Ryan’. Determined to make his movie as authentic as possible, director Steven Spielberg hired legendary movie military advisor and former U.S. Marine Corps Captain Dale Dye (pictured below on right with Hanks and Spielberg) to whip the main actors into shape before shooting started.
