Vin Diesel, aka Dom Toretto, announced on Instagram that Puerto Rican music star Ozuna is joining the cast of Fast and Furious 9. Ozuna will have a role in the film as well as make a contribution to the movie’s soundtrack. On his Instagram post, Diesel said, “As you know, we have often found great talent in the music industry to cross over into film. They are expected to leave all the accolades at the door to embrace the character with integrity… and that is exactly what Ozuna has done. Very proud of your work and role in Fast 9!”
Ozuna is expected to play the role of young Santos, though his character’s official name has not been released. Santos has been played by Don Omar, another musical icon. Ozuna only recently signed on to the film, so we expect more details of his role, on and off the screen, to be released as they are confirmed. Surely, he will have a song or two on the soundtrack. Fast & Furious 9 is set to release in May of 2020.
