Since the franchise started in 2001, The Fast and the Furious franchise has seen its fair share of wrestlers join the rank, with Dwayne Johnson coming aboard in 2011's Fast Five and John Cena set for Fast & Furious 9. However, Dave Bautista isn't looking to sign on to the series anytime soon.
When someone tweeted about Bautista potentially starring as a villain in a future Fast and the Furious spinoff, the wrestler-turned-actor replied, "Thank you for your consideration." The tweet also contained two vomiting emojis and the hashtag "#idratherdogoodfilms."
After years as a professional wrestler, Bautista made the switch to acting, starring in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and Blade Runner 2049. He's set to star in My Spy and Denis Villeneuve's upcoming Dune movie.
Plot details of the upcoming film are still under wraps, though Dwayne Johnson is not expected to return, having just completed work on the franchise's first spinoff installment, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
Fast & Furious 9 will be helmed by Justin Lin, who directed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth entries in the Fast & Furious franchise. Fast & Furious 9 is slated for a May 22, 2020 release.
