- United States
Veteran actor Rita Moreno has joined the cast of the next “Fast and Furious” movie.
Diesel shared the news of Moreno's casting in a video message in which he appeared with the veteran actor and his co-star Michelle Rodriguez.
Moreno said, ''You know what, I think I was getting... I think my old age was waiting for you to invite me. Isn’t that nice? The answer is yes, I’ll do it. And yes, not only do it, but I’m tickled. I’m tickled to hell to do it. I’m so thrilled. It’s going to be such fun!'' Diesel had last year told Variety that he wanted to rope in Moreno to play his grandmother in the long-running action franchise.
Louis Leterrier is set to helm ''Fast X'', taking over the directing duties from Justin Lin, who exited the project just days into shooting.
The movie has a release date of May 19, 2023.
