Week 17! Everyone apart of this saga has been so committed. There are great studios I am blessed to work with but Universal always feels like home... All love, Always... #fast92020#fatherhood#familyovereverything
No matter how many times we say we are making this for the fans, it’s always a good sign when the studio shows up with excitement and anticipation...we are a pretty lucky group to be making the ninth installment, a film that all of Universal and Comcast are so eager to see. All love... #fast92020#jeffshell#comcast#universal
So much to tell you... so much to share... as you know, we have been filming in Scotland. We threw a party for the crew last night in appreciation for all of their hard work. It was one of those moments that so often in the past we were together smiling and getting everyone drunk, especially Justin. Haha. Who by the way would make you so proud with what he is accomplishing with this film. Nathalie was there, in her loving spirit. Oh, and John Cena was there, who you would just love. His gratitude is palpable... and knowing you, you would just want him to win. This week the studio came to meet about the next chapter, your ears were ringing again. You would have gotten a kick out of the fact that we met in a chapel. It was profound... normally today I would be planning how to embarrass you with a birthday cake. Haha. Instead I reflect on how lucky I am to call you my brother. The tears never go away, but they change... from that of mourning to that of grace. We only hope to make you proud. Speaking of which, guess what message I woke up to... your daughter. Meadow sending me love on this day. Wow, she knows me so well. She has your heart. Happy birthday... it’s amazing, but somehow you continue to make the world a better place.
There are times in the film industry, where the actor envisioned when the character is created ends up being the actor you see on screen when the film is released... Michael Rooker. From Guardians to Fast... Blessed, grateful and inspired. #fast92020
