When it comes to casting news for the The Fast and The Furious franchise, don’t expect to hear any reports from the trades. Usually, this information comes right from the stars of the film themselves. Like Vin Diesel, who has been there for almost the entire franchise. The actor took to social media today to announce that Oscar-winning actresses Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren will be back to reprise their roles. More on the report here below.

Fast and Furious 9 seemed to be put on the back burner for quite some time. Bond 25 is expected to start production very soon. And everyone and their mother seems to be signing on to be a part of Dune. While these three films couldn’t be any more different, they have one thing in common. They all finally have release dates.
Fast and Furious 9 is shifting from its initial April 2020 date and driving towards May 2020, which is giving Bond 25 a reason to take Fast and Furious 9‘s previous April 2020 date. Meanwhile, Dune will be hitting theaters in November 2020. More on all of this below.

When the first J.J. Abrams-directed Star Trek feature was released in 2009, it thrilled me as both a lover of well-executed blockbuster entertainment and someone who has grown up enjoying the adventures of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and company because its creative and commercial success ensured that future generations would have their own Enterprise to follow into the cinematic cosmos. Into Darkness pretty much undid every detectable trace of that progress in the span of a mere two hours.
The thought of the sequels that would inevitably follow filled me with the sort of trepidation one often experiences as they prepare to enter an old house that has been abandoned since the previous owners were horribly murdered twenty years ago….
