Vin Diesel says he believes Paul Walker sent John Cena to be a part of F9: The Fast Saga. The movie is scheduled to world premiere in South Korea on May 19, 2021.
The 9th installment main installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, titled F9: The Fast Saga or Fast & Furious 9, is scheduled to release shortly this year on May 19, 2021. The movie will also feature WWE Superstar John Cena as Jakob Toretto, a master thief, assassin, and a high-performance driver, who also happens to be Dom’s brother.
Vin Diesel, who portrays Dom in the movie, told Extra that casting for the part of his brother was difficult. However, once he met Cena, it felt like the former WWE Champion was sent by Paul Walker himself. All his questions regarding who would be given the role went away.

“We started talking about the brother role very early on. When it came time to cast, it became a riddle that was so hard to answer. Every actor was on the table. Every actor was considered because I’m multicultural, and every single actor could be my brother. So, to carefully address the overall methodology because there’ll be answers in ‘Fast 10’ that will even explain or mystify you more.”
“The moment it happened in two seconds, the idea of John Cena came up. I had a dojo, a shrine, a Dom shrine where I would go and get into character, get into that Dom mindset. It had all the Fast memorabilia. It had weights, and it was a training center to get ready for the movie. Cena came in one day to meet me, and I got to tell you, and it sounded crazy at the time, and it probably still sounds crazy, I had felt because I like to be in tune, I had felt that Paul Walker sent him into the shrine. I didn’t question it at all. And I didn’t question it all.”
Paul Walker was part of the Fast and Furious Franchise from day one. He unfortunately passed away on November 30, 2013 at age 40 as a passenger in a single-car crash alongside friend and driver Roger Rodas. The accident is believed to be caused by driving into a gas pipe.
