John Cena comments on joining "Fast & Furious 9" cast

John Cena is possibly replacing Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock who we hear will not be a part of the ninth instalment

Series' star Vin Diesel teased the news earlier on Instagram.

John himself confirmed the news on Twitter and tweeted, "For almost 20 years, the Fast Franchise has entertained fans and created some of the biggest cinematic moments in history". Deadline said that The Rock will not be returning in the film. "It's an incredible honour to join this franchise and this family". Casting a former wrestler worked out well previously for Lin as Dwayne Johnson's addition in Fast Five helped elevate the franchise and led to this summer's spin-off Hobbs & Shaw. I'm exhausted of being a writer and an actress, you know?

Nothing much is known about the role of Cena and the character is under wraps. The film takes place two years after Fate of the Furious and stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.

This is not the first time Cena has appeared on the big screen, as he has also had leading roles in films such as The Marine, Trainwreck, Ferdinand and Blockers.

‘Apex Legends’ Introduces New Legend And Weapon During E3 2019 EA Play
EA Play , EA's press event for E3 2019 happened Saturday morning, and the company devoted 30 minutes to Apex Legends season 2. Developers Respawn Entertainment gabbed plenty about Wattson during today's livestream, showing how her pylon abilities work.

Dan Casey is writing the screenplay from a story by Justin Lin.

Production gets underway this month, and Fast & Furious 9 (which I'm hoping will eventually have a title that continues the trend of this franchise's wildly inconsistent naming conventions) races into theaters on May 22, 2020.

Congrats to John Cena on becoming "another soldier in the fight for truth" alongside Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, and Tyrese.
