While plot details are not clear, the working title for the upcoming sequel is “Fast & Furious 10.” Momoa is poised to play one of the villains in the latest chapter, per THR.

“The Fast Fam keeps getting bigger. Welcome, Jason Momoa. #F10,” read a tweet from the film’s official Twitter account.

Momoa is adding even more wattage to the star-studded cast of the decades-long series, which includes Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris.

After appearing in "The Fate of the Furious” and “F9,” Charlize Theron is expected to reprise her role as Cipher, the outlet noted. And after making a cameo in “F9,” rapper Cardi B is also coming back in an expanded capacity.

Justin Lin, who has directed 5 films in the franchise, is back at the helm for “F&F 10.”

One actor who won’t be returning is Dwayne Johnson.

Johnson portrayed the character Luke Hobbs in four “Fast” films and the 2019 spinoff “Hobbs and Shaw,” but didn’t appear in the recent chapter “F9.” He has since said he is done with the franchise.

"This past June, when Vin and I actually connected not over social media, I told him directly — and privately — that I would not be returning to the franchise,” he explained.

Momoa, who recently split from his wife Lisa Bonet, will next be seen in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” The sequel to the 2018 original is set to be released December 16, 2022.

Fans will have to wait a bit longer for “Fast & Furious 10,”  which doesn’t open in theaters until May 19, 2023.
