Fast & Furious 9   a tremendous opportunity

Los Angeles: John Cena is the latest addition to the ensemble cast of upcoming ninth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise and the WWE wrestler-turned-actor said coming on board the project is a great opportunity.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cena said he is happy that he will be getting a chance to work with Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez.

"There are countless ways to describe the upside of an opportunity like this. They have a way of weaving this family narrative and making it a truly successful and globally reaching franchise. They're also known for delivering the larger-than-life action and continue to outdo themselves, but they never shy away from story and the narrative that they've developed..."

Diesel had teased the 42-year-old actor's casting in the franchise in April and Cena credits him for getting him on board.

"I certainly owe a thanks to Vin Diesel as well. Because he sent out a social media message kind of alluding to the fact that the opportunity may be real, but at the time it certainly was not."

"And his message had a lot of weight and appeal to it. I guess that kind of got this avalanche of opportunity rolling, and I'm just really happy to get the chance."
