According to Movie Pilot, Bieber might be the new replacement for Walker’s character Brian O’ Connor. But, nothing has been announced officially yet. It is also rumored that Bieber will either be the new companion of Vin Diesel’s character Dominic Toretto or will serve as partner to Lucas Black’s character Sean Boswell.
Bieber and Black reportedly will be the new partners like Walker and Diesel in the “Fast and Furious” franchise.
Additionally, actress Cara Delevingne of “Paper Towns” will also be joining “Fast and Furious 9.” It is speculated that Bieber and Delevingne might team up as friends of Toretto.
It is still debated if Walker’s character Brian O’ Connor will be brought back to life with CGI technique. However, NBC Universal’s Chairman Ron Meyer revealed to MSN in the past that Walker will be serving as a memory only. It is possible that a memoir can be used to bring back the beloved character of Eva Mendes, Monica Fuentes.
Meanwhile, Michelle Rodriguez will be seen reprising her role as Letty Toretto in “Fast and Furious 8,” and Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will be joining. It is not officially announced yet, but “Mad Max: Fury Road” actress Charlize Theron is signed up as the new main villain for the upcoming “Fast and Furious” trilogy.
In addition to the upcoming films, Diesel had announced in the past that spin-offs and prequel movies can be expected from the franchise. Johnson has already showed interest in doing a spin-off movie for his character Hobbs.
This all sounds awesome, but Justin Bieber would have big shoes to fill in replacing Paul Walker.
