Vin Diesel announced on Saturday through an Instagram post that Brie Larson will be joining the upcoming Fast & Furious 10 movie, teasing that her character will be “timeless” and “profound.”
“Yeah yeah yeah… you see this angel over my shoulder cracking me up, you say to yourself ‘that’s Captain Marvel.’ Clearly there is love and laughter in this image,” Diesel, who plays Dominic Toretto in the film franchise, wrote. “What you don’t see, however, is the character you will be introduced to in Fast 10.”
Diesel continued, “You have no idea how timeless and amazing she will be in our mythology. Beyond her beauty, her intellect… her Oscar, haha is this profound soul who will add something you might not have expected but yearned for. Welcome to the FAMILY Brie.”
EW reached out to representatives for Larson and Universal Pictures for comment.
The tenth installment of the long-running Universal film franchise will once again be directed by Director Justin Lin. It is scheduled to premiere on May 19, 2023. It features a new star-studded cast like Jason Momoa, Charlize Theron, John Cena, and Cardi B alongside the veteran cast including Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Sung Kang, and Jason Statham.
Larson has previously revealed that it was “100 percent” a dream of hers to be in a Fast & Furious film.
“Please, please tell everybody I would of course want to be in a Fast & Furious movie,” Larson said. “I’m obsessed. I love them. I think they’re so good. They’re so fun. And they’ve made me appreciate cars. And it’s something that should be appreciated. They’re incredible. So of course, please.”
