It’s unclear which character John will be playing, though he’ll reportedly be “a badass.”

Dwayne Johnson, meanwhile, will not be in the movie, according to the outlet.

Production will begin later this month for a May 22, 2020, release.

“For nearly 20 years, the Fast Franchise has entertained fans and created some of the biggest cinematic moments in history,” John tweeted on Friday (June 7). “It’s an incredible honor to join this franchise and this family.”
