Jordana Brewster, who starred in Fast & Furious 9, wants Eva Mendes to return in Fast & Furious 10. Now that F9 is out in cinemas, the Fast & Furious franchise is back with another crazy episode. It is the penultimate film in the series before the two-part conclusion, Fast & Furious 11. The franchise has amassed an outstanding cast of skilled performers throughout the years. F9 continues to follow Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his primary team, but the show is always seeking new ways to bring back familiar characters.
Fans are anxious to learn who will feature in the sequel, especially since Universal has already said that Fast & Furious 10 and Fast & Furious 11 will be the series’ final installments. Vin Diesel will undoubtedly reprise his role as Dom, with Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, and Nathalie Emmanuel also likely to reprise their roles as members of Dom’s gang. Fans are most interested in learning who else from the Fast Saga will appear, especially since F9 featured a large number of returning characters.
Brewster, who plays Mia Toretto in the movie, was asked who she wishes to see in Fast & Furious 10 during a recent interview with Looper. Eva Mendes’ comeback as Monica Fuentes was one of the responses she provided. She made her film debut in 2 Fast 2 Furious and returned for a cameo in Fast Five’s post-credits sequence. Now, for Fast & Furious 10, Brewster wants her back.
Monica Fuentes, played by Eva Mendes, has been a fan favorite in the Fast & Furious franchise since 2 Fast 2 Furious. Many fans have been requesting her comeback for years, but her appearance in Fast Five is the best the franchise has done thus far. However, this is most likely not the franchise’s fault. Mendes appears to have retired from acting or taken a long break from it. Mendes’ last film performance was in 2014’s Lost River, so she might not be interested in returning to the big screen for Fast & Furious or any other film.
If Fast & Furious 10 is able to persuade Mendes to reprise her role as Monica Fuentes, it will be interesting to see how she fits into the plot. Monica worked with Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) in Mendes’ final appearance, informing him that Letty was still alive. She might return to the franchise to help disclose that a previously deceased character, such as Gal Gadot’s Gisele, is still alive. Monica could be an excellent fit for Mr. Nobody’s covert operation. In any event, maybe Fast & Furious 10 will surprise fans by including a cameo by Mendes.
