Who's in it?
The core family will be returning, naturally. Vin Diesel is back as Fast Dad Dominic Torretto and Michelle Rodriguez is returning as his wife Letty Ortiz. The motormouthed comedic duo of Tyrese Gibson (Roman Pierce) and Ludacris (Tej Parker) will also be coming back.
Fast fans will be extra excited to learn that Jordana Brewster, who plays Mia Torretto, Dom's sister and wife of Paul Walker's character Brian O'Conner and mother of their child will be officially coming back to the series after sitting The Fate of the Furious out.
Fans will be extra extra extra excited to learn that Sung Kang, who plays Tokyo drifter Han Lue (a.k.a. Han Seoul-Oh) will also return -- seemingly from the dead, as he was killed off at the very beginning by former Fast villain Deckard Shaw. Justice is served… somehow. We guess he was just in hiding this whole time! Do we really think continuity is so sacred to these movies? Ever looked at a Fast & Furious timeline and felt your brain dribble out of your ears like so much liquid NOS? Lest we forget, Letty was dead for an entire movie! Writer Chris Morgan, speaking with Entertainment Weekly last year, said cryptically that justice for Han "is coming," and we were all pleasantly surprised that it has happened so soon.
You might also recognize a number of familiar faces from F8: hacktivist Ramsey, played by Game of Thrones' Nathalie Emmanuel has joined the family, and Magdalene Shaw (Helen Mirren), mother of villain Owen and frenemy Deckard Shaw, will also be back. Charlize Theron's cyberterrorist Cipher, the big bad of F8, will also return. Ominous! IMDb also has Lucas Black, who played Sean Boswell in Tokyo Drift, listed in the credits, which would absolutely rule.
