Jason Momoa is getting into the Saga action, the 42-year-old star was seen debuting as the newest cast member on the set of Fast X or Fast & Furious 10 on Friday May 6. JustJared

Jason has a villain roll into the Saga and His name is Dante.

Jason Momoa is playing a mysterious adversary in Fast X whose name is Dante and appears to be the film's central villain given that he will be working with Cipher, Charlize Theron's criminal mastermind and cyberterrorist who was introduced in The Fate of the Furious and returned for F9.

One thing we had seen was a lavender colored car that Jason Momoa will apparently be driving in Fast X. He seemed really excited by it and it turns out the car is part of a broader ensemble. In a recent profile in the UK’s edition of GQ, it’s revealed that Momoa’s villain will be a guy with pink and purple painted toenails. It doesn’t sound like this will be Momoa’s trademark tough guy, but the actor seems more than ok with that.

According stars Jason Momoa and Vin Diesel will land in Rome on May 5 (yesterday) at Ciampino Airport and will likely sleep in a hotel in the Castelli Romani' area.

In another note and in refence to Justin Lin resignation a new report offers insight Into Justin Lin’s exit from Fast X. In a new tell-all from The Hollywood Reporter, it seems that the issues have some deeper roots than just a single dispute:

Justin Lin was handling writing duties on the movie and believed he had a locked script going into it. Universal and Diesel had other thoughts. A key location that had been secured was cut due to its Eastern Europe location amid the war in Ukraine. And the movie still hadn’t cast one of its villains yet. On top of that, even as Lin tried to draw lines in the sand, the studio said it would be sending a writer to London to polish dialogue for some of the actors, a move that was expected but apparently not welcome by Lin at that time, sources say. The constantly moving target proved too much for the seasoned Lin, who on April 23 had a “major disagreement” with Diesel. The four-person meeting had begun with Vin Diesel having new notes. It ended with a slammed door. “Justin finally had enough and said, ‘This movie is not worth my mental health,'” says one source. Both Lin and Diesel declined comment for this story.

A Universal spokesperson told THR: “Any creative differences leading to Justin Lin’s exit were with the studio, not with fellow producers, cast or crew.”

In the heat of the moment, Lin said he was through with the movie. The studio took him seriously. And by April 25, a settlement was reached for Lin to exit the production. He would remain involved as a producer. A great many of the crew had worked on F9 with Lin and for a spell wondered what their next moves should be, but Lin, according to insiders, gave his blessing that they should stay on. Regardless, the muscle car had lost its driver as it was speeding down the highway.

After the clarification about Justin Lin's resignation and going back to Fast X's production news, I am not so sure that Vin Diesel is in Italy already.
