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
What a great day at the premiere for Fast and Furious Spy Racers, an original animated series for Netflix. Dec 26th. Hats off to Universal and DreamWorks for creating a show for the younger audience while maintaining the core values and themes we have become so familiar with in the Saga. The whole cast did great… including the Alpha Angel. Haha. All love Always.
A Man Apart was filmed in 2001… I had know idea that F Gary Gray and I would team up 15 years later to bring you The Fate of the Furious. He really knocked it of the park. Congrats on your success brother.
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
The angel and uncle Ron… miracles like Fate of the Furious coming from simple meetings like these…
I’m sure if you asked everyone in this picture if they would EVER think the fast and the furious would ever go from 1 to 8 – I’m SURE we all would know the answer…… Roman came in on part 2 but there would BE no Roman, Tej, Hobbs, Shaw, cypher, Mr Nobody, Little Nobody etc….. if it wasn’t for the original FAST CREW…… we’re all so grateful and humbled by your love and support cheers to the years and years of doing our BEST to keep you entertained…….. Vrooooooommmm!!!!!!!
When Letty died in the Fourth chapter Dom had little reason to live… death has a way of making one question faith. In the London chapter,six… Dom discovers by some miracle that she is alive… it isn’t until the end of Furious seven that she remembers who Dom is to her. This next chapter starts with a long overdue honeymoon in Cuba… and then this happens.
Yeah it may look like it’s all fun… but make no mistake. Brace yourselves for The Fate of the Furious. April 14th!
@fgarygray is going to floor Hollywood and Shock the world with this saga’s 8th chapter!
One of the best things about the films that I have been blessed to be a part of are the incredible people I have met and now call friends or family. @tonyjaaofficial is someone whom I often referred to as my good luck charm because of the positive energy he brought to the filming of Furious 7. He is a real gem of a talent in the new xXx The Return of Xander, now adding a cool comedic element to his already awe inspiring acrobatics. But beyond that is his gracious heart. He is after all a real Buddhist Monk. I remember a dinner we had last year where he and my mother talked for a long time. At the end of the dinner my mother said the one place she would like to still go to is Thailand to visit Tony and the Buddhist Monks for her own spiritual growth. Haha. That’s powerful!
One year ago Furious seven was released to record breaking success. Though I have been filming the long awaited return of Xander… I can so strongly feel that pull back to the Dom state of mind. Blessed to have embodied such great characters, and even more so with people who have enriched my life. This creative image of yours inspired my thoughts.
