Buckle up, because cameras are now rolling on Fast & Furious 9.

Vin Diesel took to his Instagram page yesterday on the movie's set, posting a video with co-star Michelle Rodriguez, aka Letty Ortiz, in the rural setting.

“Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. Can you believe it Letty? We just completed our first day. It feels like a miracle,” says Vin.

“One hard earned, but we're just so greatful... Most importantly, we're so grateful to you, world, for adopting this franchise... it's so awesome.”

Game of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel also posted to commemorate their first day on set, writing: “Day one of shooting Fast and Furious 9 today... The team is back together.”

She followed with a string of emoji characters, presumably representing herself as hacker Ramsey, with co-stars Diesel, Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris.

Brewster, who was among the first to 'like' Diesel's video post, is now back in the fold as Dom Toretto's sister Mia, after missing Fast & Furious 8.

Her storyline could be tricky to incorporate, however.

She was last seen heading off into the sunset with the late Paul Walker's character Brian, trading the high-octane life for something more sedate.

The movie is being helmed by Justin Lin, who is also returning to the franchise after making Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6.

James Wan and F. Gary Gray took over for Furious 7 and The Fate of the Furious, and now Lin will take on both the ninth and tenth movies, set to be released a year apart.

Fast & Furious 9 (going ahead without Dwayne Johnson, who's instead appearing with Jason Statham in spin-off Hobbs and Shaw, due out in August) lands on May 22, 2020, with the tenth movie set for April, 2021.
