“Reacher” series star Alan Ritchson has joined the cast of “Fast X,” the tenth installment in the “Fast and Furious” franchise at Universal Pictures.
The “Smallville” and “Titans” alum joins Louis Letterier to replace Justin Lin as director of the project that is currently in production.
Ritchson joins franchise newcomers Jason Momoa, Daniela Melchior and Brie Larson in the film which features a screenplay co-written by Lin and Dan Mazeau. The key core cast from Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez to John Cena and Charlize Theron is expected to return.
A second season of “Reacher” has been ordered and is expected to be based on Lee Child’s novel “Die Trying,” but it is unclear when filming will begin.
“Fast X” will open in theaters next summer.
