Many Fans including Charlize Theron want Tom Cruise to star in Fast 11
If there is one thing that Vin Diesel is good at besides his compelling acting skills and remarkable personality, it’s his exceptional ability to keep secrets. But even after being incredibly confidential, sometimes his expressions and body language give away, and that’s exactly how rumors about a possible collaboration with Tom Cruise gained more fuel.
This comes after Diesel’s suspiciously coy reaction when he was asked in an interview following the release of Fast X if fans could look forward to a possible collaboration between Cruise and him for his next film from the Fast saga.
Vin Diesel’s Reaction To Tom Cruise Collab Rumors Was Suspiciously Coy

Tom Cruise is one of the biggest names in the action industry, and his own Mission: Impossible film series among others is the proof of it. So having him star in the next and last film of the Fast & Furious movie series would be nothing short of remarkable.
Earlier this year, at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Miami, Vin Diesel was seen hanging out with Cruise and Ludacris, which sparked rumors of a possible collaboration between the pair for Fast 11. And the actor cum producer’s suspiciously coy reaction while addressing the rumors just might have confirmed the same.
At the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project 2023 Block Party annual charity event, Terri Seymour from Extra’s got a chance to talk to the Riddick actor. There, she confronted him about the rumors of having Cruise for the next Fast flick. To this, Diesel’s reaction was:
“Terri, come on. This is too hot. It’s too hot for the press. It’s sizzling, I tell you.”
While he didn’t admit to the rumors, Vin Diesel didn’t deny them either, which just might mean that fans could be in for a lovely surprise to see their two favorite action figures in a sizzling collaboration for the upcoming Fast 11.
Fans Aren’t The Only Ones Shipping Tom Cruise For Fast 11
Although Vin Diesel didn’t give a clear answer to the Fast franchise fans, his co-star from the Fast & Furious film series, Charlize Theron, has made it evident that she wants Tom Cruise in Fast 11.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, the Atomic Blonde actress was asked about her thoughts on having Cruise for the next Fast installment. To this, she said:
“It should happen. I mean, why not? I mean, was there an invite sent? Like, I mean, send him an invite. [Interviewer: I mean, the fans are sending an invite.] Well then, he can’t say no. And it’s done. Let’s go!”
All these signs are all pointing at the rumors of the possible collaboration to be true. But then again, we can’t just say anything yet because of no official confirmation. So, as of now, fans will just have to wait until the release of Fast 11 to know if their heartfelt wish actually comes true or not.
Fast 11 has been reportedly confirmed by Vin Diesel to hit the theatres on the 4th of April, 2025.
