Fast & Furious 9 is currently in post-production, and Vin Diesel revealed that he has finished filming. The action star recently shared a lengthy Instagram post explaining that he is going to take some time to “center” after the longest film shoot of his career. Apparently, the filming for Fast 9 was a timely process, and the 52-year-old has chosen to take a step back to gather himself.

“After the longest filming shoot of my career with Fast 9… A film I am so immensely proud of. Before entering the next character and film project… so much to be excited about… Fast continuation, Xander Cage, Riddick… Groot. Not to mention the possibilities of Witch Hunter and the follow up to Bloodshot. Before all the press that coincides with the release of the various pictures next year. I must take a minute to center. To celebrate the wonderful family I have been blessed with. So grateful for the Holidays. Perfect timing I might add. Hahaha.”

A shirtless photo of Vin accompanied the long-winded caption, with the post receiving thousands of likes. The actor hashtagged the phrase “dad bod,” which was a little misleading given his muscular physique and toned abs.

Vin’s other film project, Bloodshot, is also currently in post-production and will hit theaters before Fast 9. The action thriller will premiere on February 21, 2020.

After Fast 9 debuts on May 22, 2020, the actor will have a handful of other films releasing over the next several years. Vin is currently rumored to have a role in Avatar 2, but his involvement has not been officially confirmed at this time. xXx 4 is also in pre-production, which will see Vin return as Xander Cage. Similarly, the actor will be returning in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to voice the fan-favorite character Groot once again.

Fast & Furious 10 has also been announced, alongside Furya, where Vin will reprise his role as Riddick. He is also hoping to add a second Bloodshot to the mix if the film does well in theaters next year.

Vin seems to be happy while taking some much-needed time off, as he sent out some “Happy Thanksgiving” videos to his fans after his vacation officially began. The actor took the opportunity to thank his fans for all of their support over the years.

At the moment, Vin does not appear to be taking a break from social media, so fans don’t have to worry about missing their favorite star completely.
