Rodriguez is Furious

03.06.2008
I was pretty sure that we all knew this already, but maybe this is the official word: Michelle Rodriguez is back for FAST AND THE FURIOUS 4. Good news? Bad news? I'd say good, since I feel a strange attraction to this chick. What can I say, I like knowing my girls can whip my ass. Of course, she's joining Jordana Brewster and apparently, Gal Gardot, which means even if the story is a turd sandwich, we're gonna have something nice to look at. That said though, I've actually heard really good things about the script, and I prefer to look at the return of Diesel, Walker, Brewster and Rodriguez as a sign that it is a worthwhile movie to make, rather than and opportunity to make some coin. I'm not entirely sure how you can make picking exactly the right time to use your NOS thrilling for a third movie (drifting jumped the shark after one flick), but I'm ready to give it a try. Justin Lin is on board to direct, and I know, at first glance the guy should be crucified for replacing Vin Diesel and American muscle cars with Lil Bow Wow and bright green Incredible Hulk cars. But don't forget this is the dude who said he would walk away from an opportunity to remake OLD BOY if he felt he couldn't do it justice. I've gotta support the guy for that.
Extra Tidbit: I think that the final scene in TOKYO DRIFT is just bad ass.

They must be running out of real news.

I clicked on this shit because I thought Rordriguez = Robert R. I hate some of these ambiguously titled news items on here. What a waste of my click. There's a FF4? LOL

Who would have thought that a Point Break remake would spawn so many sequels????

Fast and Furious 3

I think that FF3 is definitely the best out of the bunch. Had the most fun factor out of all of them. But then again that is my opinion. But I really can't wait to see Vin back in the driver's seat as well. This should be interesting.

FF3

I wouldn't say balls...the second was balls. The third was really good for a third film. The first one just has more of a rewatchable factor to it

Tokyo drift was the best of the bunch? Seriously? That movie was balls. Lil Bow Wow and punky asian kids was the worst thing that ever happened to this franchise.

I loved the original.. seeing Disel, Walker, Brewster and Rodriguez back is making me real pumped for this one.. and hopefully an end to the series.

Good addition..

But wasn't the plot that she dies and then Vin and Paul have to go find the killer or something?

And to the part where the last scene blew people in Drift, do you guys own a TV? They basically spoiled that ending on all the commercials trying to sell us that Vin was in the movie.


Plot synopsis on IMDB: "Letty has been killed working for drug baron Antonio Braga. Brian, fresh from an undercover stint in prison, is out to catch the man responsible, and so is Dominic. Brian and Dominic go

YES.

Hope those rumors about Han are true.

Tokyo Drift was the best of the bunch, and now that Lin has command of names, it should bring in people that were unfortunately not interested last time for one hell of a show.

And concurred, the last scene in Tokyo Drift was sweet.

So Now the Entire Original Cast Is Onboard...

I'll be seeing this, definately, if only to see how it turns out. Who knows, this could probably turn out to be one of the better entries in the series.

Good news i reckon!

I was pretty much convinced when it was announced that Diesel and Walker were back. Not as interested in the return of Brewster and now Rodriguez, but it does build my hopes that this will turn out to be the movie i want it to be!
Just wish i could come up with some witty crack about Rodriguez's driving!

She probably just has a cameo though. That's if the rumored storyline is true.

Awesome!

It's actually great to see the entire original cast back as I really dug the first film. You're not alone though James in your strange attraction for Michelle. I practically fell in love when she was on "Lost".

To be perfectly honest, I actually liked "Tokyo Drift" as well and you're right, the final scene blew me away!
