Brie Larson has joined the cast of Fast & Furious 10.
Vin Diesel announced his casting on Instagram over the weekend by sharing a photo of him and the Oscar-winning actress laughing together.
“There is clearly love and laughter in this image. What you don’t see though is the character you will be introduced to in Fast10,” Diesel wrote in the caption. “You have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology.”
He gushed: “Beyond her beauty, her intelligence… her Oscar, haha is that deep soul that will add something you may not have expected but yearned for. Welcome to the Brie FAMILY. “
The Captain Marvel actress shared the same snap on Instagram on Sunday and expressed her excitement about joining the franchise.
“Excited doesn’t even begin to explain how I feel about joining the Fast family…thank you for welcoming me with such kindness and enthusiasm, @vindiesel. Can’t wait to share some more (when I can),” she wrote.
Larson is the third new cast member to be announced for Fast 10 following The Suicide Squad’s breakout Daniela Melchior and Jason Momoa from Aquaman. Although their characters haven’t been officially revealed, Momoa recently told Entertainment Tonight that he’s playing a villain and will be sharing scenes with Charlize Theron, who is returning as Cipher.
Fast 10 will also feature the usual suspects – Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Sung Kang and Nathalie Emmanuel.
Principal photography begins on the film later this month. Justin Lin returns to direct the first and second parts of Fast 10, which should conclude the franchise. The first part is expected to be released in May 2023.
