After her well-received appearance in "Hustler's" Cardi B her next movie role seems to have landed already, and she finds herself in the middle of one of the film's biggest franchises.
It was Vin Diesel himself who announced the big news and released a video with the rapper on his Instagram. When Diesel promised that the entire cast had put everything in "Fast & Furious 9", Cardi looked completely exhausted behind him.
On Day 86 of the sequel, Vin did not look much busier when they were producing in the UK.
"I'm tired, but I can not wait," Cardi repeated. "I will not be in the front, I think that will be the best." While neither of them expressly says that she is in the movie, every hint in the video seems to confirm their involvement in any function (and we're not talking about music).
Cardis casting comes one day after the addition of Latin Star Ozuna in the cast, Variety reports that he may also be included in the movie's starred soundtrack. They do not want to force Cardi out there as well to spit one or two verses?
Cardi and Ozuna join Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron as the mainstays of "Fast & Furious" Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and Jordana Brewster back for the ride.
John Cena has already been announced to join the film, which means that Diesel and the company seem to introduce the next generation of daring good-natured into their franchise just as the Marvel Cinematic Universe is undergoing.
And so the MCU, the "FF" franchise, shows no signs of slowing down. Each movie seems to be getting bigger and bigger, and the first spin-off, "Hobbs & Shaw," proves there's room for expansion in the summer, with a $ 750 million take-in.
This is the second high-profile acting gig for Cardi, who also seems to follow in the footsteps of many other hip-hop stars in a film career. Her role in the film is not known for the time being, but it would be great for her if it were not for a stripper role. She was great at "Hustlers" but considering her personal experience, it was not a big challenge for her.
Fans will now be looking for them to show some reach, though "Fast & Furious" films are not necessarily known for their acting and artistic pursuits, yet Cardi has the potential to show what they do in an action movie while continuing to bring female energy and diversity into the franchise's all-star list of talents.
