Fast and Furious director, Justin Lin, has shared a behind the scenes image, revealing that work on the ninth movie is almost finished.

Spanning two decades, the Fast and Furious franchise has had great success among fans, with spin-offs also being introduced like 2019’s Hobbs and Shaw.

Now it’s time to return to the main story though, as Fast and Furious 9, also known as F9, is the latest project in the works at Universal.

When is Fast & Furious 9 coming out?

The ninth movie in the franchise has already been pushed back twice, from both May 2020 and April 2021, due to the ongoing health crisis.y

With the movie edging closer to being finished, it will easily be ready for its release in theaters on May 28, 2021. However, the current crisis means it could be delayed again, depending on theaters being open or not.

In a recent tweet, the movie’s director, Justin Lin, shared a behind the scenes picture from the mixing room, saying it was officially complete.

He also thanked the team that had continued working on the project, despite concerns with the current crisis.

The director is set to return for a tenth and eleventh addition to the franchise as back-to-back sequels, having already helmed four of the movies prior to F9.

Sadly, it was confirmed that Fast and Furious 11 will be the last. It could return through more spin-offs, which are already said to be in the works at Universal, but the main storyline will come to an end.

The ninth installment is set to unite Vin Diesel’s Dom with his younger brother, Jakob, who is enlisted by Cipher. The pair will face off against each other, as Dom realizes he can’t leave his past behind him any longer.

This will be John Cena’s debut in the franchise, as he joins the star-studded line-up including Ludacris and Charlize Theron. Musicians Ozuna and Cardi B are also expected to appear.

News of F9’s completion has got a lot of fans excited to find out the new direction the movie will go in, especially as it edges closer to the end of the franchise.

Until then, they’ll have a while longer to wait. Fast and Furious 9 hits theaters on May 28, 2021.

Actress Maisie Williams, best known for her role as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, is going viral after making an account on TikTok – but her lowkey username means that many users are actually stumbling across her account by accident.

The recent buzz surrounding video-sharing app TikTok has got millions of people gravitating towards it to try out some of the viral trends that the app has become most notable for.

This includes a wide range of celebrities who have made accounts to connect with their fans, including Jason Derulo, Lizzo, and more.

TikTok’s user base is growing bigger by the day.

But not every famous person was upfront about their decision to make an account, keeping it quiet to see who would end up finding them first. In November 2020, singer Billie Eilish snuck onto TikTok with a bizarre username that had fans questioning if the account really belonged to her.

Now, actress Maisie Williams seems to be the latest celebrity to join up, under the username ‘lil.hustla.’

The first video from the account was posted on January 30 2021, and she’s since gone on to post many videos that have racked up hundreds of thousands of views and likes.

Her account has already managed to get over 340,000 followers, but that seems like nothing compared to the 10 million followers she has on her verified Instagram account. Although some have dubbed it ‘TikTok’s best-kept secret,’ it seems like the cat is already out of the bag, as some of the star’s videos have up to five million views.

In one video, where people use the Stitch feature to answer the question, “what is your favorite celebrity interview moment,” Maisie included the viral Jimmy Fallon interview in which she pranked viewers by pretending she’d dropped a major spoiler for Game of Thrones.

This was alongside other videos trying out a variety of filters such as the time warp filter, and recreating some of TikToks’ most popular dances.

While lil.hustla does appear to be Maisie Williams’ actual account as her Instagram account is linked in the profile, she’s not currently verified, and people have managed to make some rather convincing fake celebrity accounts in the past for actors like Tom Holland.

Regardless, the lowkey account has certainly been entertaining fans of the star, and it’s got people wondering which other celebrities could already be on TikTok without anyone else knowing.
