Cardi B Joins The Fast & Furious 9 Line-Up
Back in October 2019, Cardi teased fans about playing a role in the upcoming flick. However, the COVID-19 pandemic ultimately forced the movie to suffer a yearlong delay before heading to theaters. Cardi’s co-star Vin Diesel shared footage of them together on-set.
“Day 86 on the set of Fast 9. I know I’m exhausted. I literally, we all gave every single thing we could for this movie. Put it all on the table. Put it all out there.”
Cardi made sure to chime in about her contribution to the flick and being tired from the filming.
“I’m tired. But I can’t wait. I ain’t gonna front, this is going to be the best one. Yup. I’m gonna take a nappy nap. I’ve been saying this the whole day, ‘mi-nappy-nap.’ Remember that. ‘Nappy-nap.’ [laughs]”
Ludacris Needs To Know
Back in May 2020, Ludacris hit up his social media pages to find out which Fast & Furious movie they put at the top of their personal lists. Despite the flick getting delayed, he still wanted to focus on the franchise’s overall success.
“All the REAL Fast Fans Let’s be Honest. IF YOU HAD TO CHOOSE JUST ONE 👆🏾 which is the BEST SO FAR? 🤔🤔🤔” -Ludacris’ Instagram
Initial April 2021 Rollout
The movie found itself initially getting delayed through April 2021. The coronavirus epidemic forced its delay by an entire year before ultimately getting pinned to a June 25 release.
Universal Studios, the company behind the “Fast & Furious” franchise, made the decision because of the impact that the fast-moving coronavirus is having on the global economy and the distribution landscape. Theaters remain closed in Italy, South Korea and China, where the virus has hit hardest. There’s also a mounting sense that some theaters will close in the U.S. as the outbreak continues to spread. “Fast 9” will now open globally in April 2021 and in the U.S. on April 2. (Variety)
