‘Fast and Furious’ Star Vin Diesel Says There are ‘Angels Coming’ as Daniela Melchior Joins the Cast

For 20 years, Vin Diesel has been the face of the Fast and Furious franchise. While the family continues to grow, Diesel has remained a central part of these films. As every race nears its final lap, so does the Fast and Furious series and Diesel teases that there are “angels coming” as the series approaches its final two films.

The first film in 2001 began with a cast that included Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster. As the franchise evolved, the films have stacked up an impressive roster that includes Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jason Statham, Sung Kang, Luke Evans, Kurt Russell, Charlize Theron, and even Helen Mirren. 

The most recent entry, F9, introduced John Cena as Dominic Toretto’s (Diesel) estranged brother. F9 may have been the most excessive adventure yet as the action sequences involved magnetized cars and trips to space. It will be hard to top that, but Diesel promises the best is yet to come.

Diesel teases a finale that will make fans proud

There haven’t been a ton of updates on Fast and Furious 10. However, Diesel recently shared an Instagram post on his account that hints at an epic finale. He even says that there are “angels coming to this mythology” that will make fans smile. 

“Good morning planet…I know I haven’t posted in a minute, when people in the world suffer I tend to pull back from the shallow acts of social media,” Diesel wrote in an Instagram post. “However, I know there are many of you who really sincerely wait to hear from me and to know where my state of mind lies. I am approaching the finale of the first saga… that is Fast.” 

“It is very intense, although god has brought such incredible talent to assist me in completing this mythology, I can’t help but to reminisce… you all have been a part of this journey,” Diesel continued. “You all have been a part of this family. I can’t believe that universal studios is committed to a two-part finale… their support and belief in this mythology surprises me and makes me smile. There are angels coming to this mythology that will make you all smile. Haha. I love you all… and I from the bottom of my soul, hope to make you proud.”

Daniela Melchior joins Diesel in ‘Fast and Furious 10’

One of the “angels” that is joining the cast of Fast and Furious 10 is Daniela Melchior. It’s not confirmed who she will be playing but Deadline reports that she is going to be in the film. Melchior had a breakout performance in 2021 as Ratcatcher II in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad

Melchior is the second new addition to the cast. Previously, it was announced that Jason Momoa would be playing the villain in Fast and Furious 10. There are still little story details about the tenth entry, but these two additions should help Diesel make the masterpiece that he wants the finale to be. 

Fast and Furious 10 is scheduled to be released on May 19, 2023.
