Fast & Furious 9 is an upcoming American action film directed by Justin Lin and written by Chris Morgan and Daniel Casey. A sequel to 2017's The Fate of the Furious, it will be the tenth installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise and the ninth mainline installment. The film was originally scheduled to be released in 2019 but was delayed because of franchise spinoffs and the pandemic. In 1989, during the last stock car race of the season, the Torettos are on the track. Jack Toretto (JD Pardo) is one of the racers and comes off for a pit stop. Jack's sons Dominic (Vinnie Bennett) and Jakob (Finn Cole) are a part of his Pit Crew. While Jakob works under the hood, Dom argues with the Pit Crew of rival racer Kenny Linder (Jim Parrack) as he is being a dirty racer. As Jack is about to get back into the race he tells Dom to let it go, saying it's not about being the stronger man but about being the bigger man. As Jack gets back on the track to resume the race, Kenny resumes as well, as they near the next lap Kenny bumps Jack's car and causes him to hit a wall at 120 Mph, his car then bursting into flames in the process and killing him. Dom sees this and tries to run on to the track to save his dad but is held back by Buddy (Michael Rooker), another member of Jack's pit crew. Dom and Jakob both watch as their father dies in front of them.
