Statement by Vin Diesel
What F9 does is shed light on how Dom has managed his vulnerability his whole life. That’s what’s so fun about the evolution of this character because it’s something that we all can identify with.
When we have children, the stakes are higher. Now everything Dom does, he has to consider the true source of his vulnerability: his child. It’s not that Dom is ecstatic about living on the farm. He’s governed by necessity. There’s a lot of unfinished business in this world that he’s been living in. A lion is vulnerable because of its cub, and that’s who Dom is. In order to protect his cub, this is the sacrifice he makes.
There are many interesting aspects of this storyline that are going to surprise our audience and unravel more of the identity of the characters that they’re so familiar with. For Dom to be a father in the truest sense, he has to go and revisit his past.
The movie is available on June 25.
