Happy creative Sunday everyone… sorry I haven’t posted much lately, I have been trying to mitigate a war between Universal studios and the p.g.a. Prejudice guild of America.
Less than two weeks away from the trailer launch of Fast 9! So grateful to the entire Fast Family, including Universal… anyone who for the last two decades have been a part of this incredible saga. Most important I am grateful to you all who have been there with us along the whole journey. We hope to make you proud. #Fast92020
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.
Everyone apart of this saga has been so committed. There are great studios I am blessed to work with but Universal always feels like home…
All love, Always…
No matter how many times we say we are making this for the fans, it’s always a good sign when the studio shows up with excitement and anticipation…we are a pretty lucky group to be making the ninth installment, a film that all of Universal and Comcast are so eager to see. All love… #Fast92020 #JeffShell #Comcast #Universal
My brother Bobby… let me tell you about this amazing individual. He has a way of giving everyone he comes in contact with so much inspiration. You see it in the roles he plays. Like me he has never won an Oscar, but that means zero when it comes to how he has affected the world. His very existence represents the power of resilience. The love you have for him pales in comparison to the love I have for his spirit. On the weekend of the highest grossing movie of all times he in the most humble way says, your next brother. Fast 9 is going to take the industry to new heights! His belief in me sometimes scares me. I never want to let anyone down. So I will do everything in my power to make sure FAST 9 is everything! I love you RDJ and your brotherhood is truly a gift of which I am eternally grateful for.

As you know, there are three new spin offs that We have promised Universal… well this week we heard a pitch for the Fast female protagonist driven spinoff I created in 2017, and you can tell by the smile on Samantha’s face it was VERY exciting. Shout out to Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer, Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Welcome to the Fast FAMILY…
Grateful to have gotten to know you. Thank you for exploring our Universal quest for the heroic ideal. More importantly thank you for that powerful smile that made us all feel like we mattered. We will miss you.
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
Loving the Fan art….
Thank you world for believing we could do it, seventeen years I have loved with this mythology and to now be the biggest global opening in history… I just can’t thank you all enough. Will forever be proud of this mythology and all the work the cast and crew have put into it. Universal has been the best partners one could hope for. Josh, Moses and the entire marketing team, thank you for getting this film around the world. We are all feeing the love and it only inspires us to reach higher.
