In some exciting news for John Cena fans, the WWE wrestler and Hollywood actor has signed on his next big-ticket film after Bumblebee (2018), which was a box-office hit, last year. John will be starring alongside Vin Diesel in the latest installment of the beloved franchise, titled Fast and Furious 9. Rumours were rife for the longest time about Cena being approached to star in the film with Vin adding more fuel to the fire, through a cryptic Instagram post, featuring John.

Finally, the announcement was made that John has joined the F&F gang and will be packing a punch. Talking to Entertainment Weekly, John shared his interests in cars, which is a major aspect for the Fast and Furious franchise. But it's also the family narrative attached to the movie that John feels makes it a "successful and globally reaching franchise." The larger-than-life action sequences and narrative is what attracted John to Fast and Furious 9. "They’re constantly redefining the franchise but not redefining the ethos. Literally, I’m surrounded by a group of people who are better than I am and such skilled people with so much experience, so what a great environment to learn from. It really is a tremendous opportunity," John shared.

John also owed thanks to his co-star Vin Diesel for his cryptic Instagram post that had Cena's fans on an overdrive, speculating the casting rumours.

"I guess that kind of got this avalanche of opportunity rolling, and I’m just really happy to get the chance. I give everybody who is attached to the franchise and who enjoys the franchise the promise that you will get my absolute best," John added.
