Like father, like son? The industry is abuzz this week with reports that Vin Diesel’s  10-year-old son Vincent Sinclair will be making his blockbuster film debut with this spring’s release  of “Fast & Furious 9.”  Sinclair will be portraying a younger incarnation of Dominic Toretto, the character his father portrayed in earlier episodes of the “Fast & Furious” series, where the boy’s role was played by Alex McGee.

Despite its title, “Fast & Furious 9” has been somewhat slow in getting to screens. It was originally scheduled by Universal for release in the summer of 2020, but was postponed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic—April 2, May 28, and now June  25. 

The film is directed by Justin Lin, who had done those honors for several of the earlier episodes. Other actors making appearances include John Cena, Charles Theron, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, and Helen Mirren.

The earlier installment in the series, “Fast and Furious 8” made its debut in 2017. Over the past two decades, the eight “Fast & Furious” flicks have raked in close to $6 billion in gross revenues worldwide. Speaking of the soon-to-be-released ninth installment. Vin Diesel was quoted in Entertainment Weekly as saying, “When you really think about the quality of the movie, there’s more time you have to work in post-production, more time to get the shots right; it does give you a little bit of a cushion. I want to get the movie out for all of the great fans who have been waiting for this chapter—and yet look at the world that we live in.”
