Latin singer Ozuna has joined the star cast of Fast and Furious for its ninth instalment which is scheduled to release on May 2020. Ozuna has not just bagged a role in the upcoming American action film but may also record for the film's soundtrack. The role in Fast and Furious 9 will be his second in a feature film after the 2018 romantic comedy Que Leon. He will also make an appearance in the sequel of Que Leon which is presently in its pre-production stage and is titled Los Leones. Days after John Cena finished shooting for his role in the action thriller, Ozuna's entry was announced.
Justin Lin has returned to direct this edition of the serious after he made Fast & Furious 6. Vin Diesel will be starring once again as Dominic Toretto in it and will co-star along with Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, John Cena, Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron and Michael Rooker. The film's screenplay has been penned down by Dan Casey from a story written by Lin and Alfredo Botello. Fast and Furious 9 is expected to release on May 22 next year worldwide. Their latest addition Ozuna is a proud winner of two 2019 Latin American Music Awards last week. The Taki Taki singer has even been nominated for a 2019 Latin Grammy Award for his track Baila Baila Baila.
Last month, Fast and Furious actor Dwayne Johnson wrote an emotional post for deceased costar Paul Walker marking his birth anniversary which was on September 12. On his Instagram account, he wrote, "I never post about my friend. It’s a personal thing, but I prefer to keep our memories and bond private and quiet. But something about today compelled me as a moving reminder of how fragile life is for all of us. It’s Paul’s birthday and rightfully so, his legacy celebrated around the world. Our friendship was bonded over our daughters, Meadow & Simone and the pride and protection we took being their fathers”.
He even shared a picture of himself standing next to his late co-star. He then wrote, "And recently, I got a scare when I almost lost another friend on the road. All this stuff got me thinking about how beautiful, yet wildly unpredictable life is. We never know what’s around the corner, so we gotta live as greatly as we can in the honour of our loved ones and ancestors who are no longer with us. Manuia le aso fanau, my friend.”
