F9 Poster Cropped
The films of Fast and Furious are known for their death-defying stunts, cars, locations, and action. One of the important cogs behind the scenes is with the costumes these characters wear. After all, the clothing gives each character their personality. With each person in F9: The Fast Saga, each character displays its uniqueness, toughness, and makes them all good behind the wheel.
All these costumes in the ninth installment are thanks to costume designer Sanja Milkovic Hays.
Here’s the official synopsis of F9: The Fast Saga:
Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) thought he’d left his outlaw life in the rear-view mirror, but not even he can outrun the past. When his forsaken brother Jakob (John Cena) unexpectedly resurfaces as an elite assassin, the crew comes back together to help Dom confront the sins of his own past and stop a world-shattering plot.
Franchise veteran Justin Lin returns to the director’s seat for F9 from the screenplay written by Daniel Casey and Lin. The rest of the cast includes Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Nathalie Emmanuel, Charlize Theron, John Cena, Finn Cole, Sung Kang, Anna Sawai, Helen Mirren, and Kurt Russell.
