Vin Diesel Rejected Fast 10 Movie Script That Excluded Jordana Brewster

Vin Diesel reveals that he rejected a script for Fast & Furious 10 because it didn’t include Jordana Brewster’s Mia Toretto. First released in 2001, the Fast & Furious franchise has now been going strong for over 20 years with the latest entry, F9: The Fast Saga, released in 2021. The franchise follows Diesel’s Dominic Toretto, an illegal street racer turned action hero who, along with a band of close allies, friends, and family, works to save the world from various threats.

Shortly following the release of F9: The Fast Saga, it was revealed that the story of Dom and the rest of the mainline Fast & Furious crew would come to a close with two final films. Casting announcements for Fast 10 have dropped periodically over the last few months, with Brie Larson, Daniela Melchior, and Aquaman star Jason Momoa joining on. While plot details regarding the upcoming film also remain scarce, Diesel revealed its title to be Fast X in a recent social media post.

In a new post on his Instagram, Diesel reveals that he actually turned down a script for Fast X that excluded Mia, the wife to the late Paul Walker’s Brian O’Connor. In a lengthy caption accompanying a picture of him hugging Brewster and Walker, Diesel explains the draft left him feeling “disappointed,” since he sees Mia as the reason for Dom and Brian’s brotherhood in the films. Ultimately, Diesel explains, it was his daughter that set things right, telling director Justin Lin, “NO MIA NO FAST 10!” Check out Diesel’s post below:

While Mia played an important role in F9: The Fast Saga, the character was notably absent from the previous Fast film, The Fate of the Furious, in 2017. Due to Walker’s tragic death during the filming of Furious 7, Mia and Brian had their endings rewritten, with both characters retiring at the end of the film. While Brewster did ultimately come back in F9: The Fast Saga, the character’s return raises interesting questions within the world of the story regarding why Mia returned, but not Brian.

The cast of Fast X grows ever larger and it’s possible that, with so many characters, it has been a struggle to craft a story that features all of them in meaningful ways. It remains to be seen how prominently Mia will feature in the story of Fast X, but Diesel’s post confirms that she will definitely be returning in some capacity. As Diesel alludes to in his caption, Mia and Brian represent the Fast saga’s heart in many ways, and countless people might ultimately be disappointed to see one of the core cast members not return for Fast & Furious 10.
