I will never forget when Pablo called me and said that he would only come back to the fast and furious franchise because I was producing…. blessed to be able to make magic. #Alllove
Appreciate the creativity…
How ironic that I had a Xander Cage meeting.
Each Franchise has their respective beautiful Family. Blessed.

Brotherhood… and all it’s complexities. This scene was filmed in Puerto Rico, I can remember it like it was yesterday. Such a beautiful island, the people were so warm and welcoming. I turned 43 that summer… and my son Vincent was born.
A woman named Jan Kelly responded to a question I had asked on Facebook, ‘who they would like to see me work with?’ She said would love to see me work with Dwayne… I listened to her request and he became Hobbs.
I know there has been a lot of speculation as to why the Fast 9 release date was pushed… but it would be unfair to say it is anyone’s fault.
As we plot the course to expand the Fast & Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan’s perspective has been instrumental in procuring success.
However, like any vehicle that has run around the globe 8 times, the franchise is in need of maintenance. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that. We have some very exciting news to share soon… stay tuned.
Yours truly, Dom
So proud to be a part of this franchise. The studio, the amazing cast and crew… and the mad genius, Our writer director, James Gunn!
Thank you all for the support and love you have shown this franchise… 1 billion doesn’t come without sacrifice and commitment. Charlize was a great addition to this chapter, although there were the barbecues on the weekends with our children all playing together and moments of levity in between set ups, when We zoned in to our respective characters it was serious business, pushing one another to create dynamic, iconic and memorable performances. She really committed to playing the villain and as the actor and producer I can’t thank her enough. To all the cast and crew, thank you for believing in our saga and your willingness to give everything you had. Most importantly to the fans who have been there from the beginning. We truly make these with Our hearts.
Off set there is always laughter, but when we are in Our respective roles it is serious business. One of the things I am most proud of is bringing Jason into Our saga. Not only does he shine in F8 he also is always reliable to travel the world and represent this franchise with pride.
Ok with the new xXx debuting as the number one movie in the world and with the cinema score being an A… the question of the next chapter is up. Those of you who have been on my Facebook for years knows I always go to you first for casting thoughts. Think of all of the actors that have been a part of the Fast Franchise simply because one of you (Vinbook folk) have suggested it.
I always love your feedback. Who would you like to see me work with? Who would you like to see in X4?
Close to 80 million world wide opening weekend!!!! I am so proud of our amazing cast, which truly represents Our world. The director who was tirelessly striving to bring an almost forgotten franchise back to life. Paramount who has been struggling as every studio eventually goes through really shined here with the amazing Megan Colligan leading the charge. She crushed all the other studios this weekend with honest play and hard work. Proud to be a part of it.
This day has finally come! The premiere and domestic release of xXx The Return of Xander! Thank you all for encouraging us to bring this FUN franchise back to the big screen. They are saying it could be the best cast ever!!! In all my years I have never seen a cast so unified- it is a powerful thing. Blessed!!!
Can’t say enough great things about this brother. He brought so much to the Franchise but also to the experience of filming xXx The Return of Xander! Had a blast with @donnieyenofficial and the whole xXx League at the European Premiere in London. Will see you all at the Hollywood Premiere on the 19th! The same night the movie opens in America.
