The Fast & Furious franchise is one of the most popular, financially successful film franchises today, and the series is now preparing to remake its tenth film, which will return all of the popular characters favored by fans, and several more outstanding names. However, star Michelle Rodriguez says that new Fast X director Louis Leterrier is adding something special to the film.
Justin Lin, who has directed five of the Fast & Furious films to date, stepped down from the project due to unknown creative differences. He has since signed on to direct a live-action One-Punch Man film. Louis Leterrier, a member of the film team, has brought an incredible amount of energy and passion for the franchise that has enthralled everyone in a way they haven't seen in a long time.
He came with all this passion. We haven't had that in Fast and Furious for a very long time where we get somebody excited who's a real fan and who wants to take it where it hasn't gone before. We've been doing it for 20 years, bro. [Until] a director like Louis comes in and reminds you, 'This is beautiful. Let's make magic.' We're so fortunate to have him.
Michelle Rodriguez says that she was not aware that she was going to be a part of Fast X until she saw someone else. She said that she was just as excited to be a part of it all.
Louis Leterrier isnt the only person to join Fast X and is certain to be enthused to be there. Jason Momoa and Brie Larson have also joined the franchise with the new installment, and both are equally excited to be on board.
Fresh blood can lead to fresh ideas, and it's true that new blood might be beneficial. Louis Leterrier may have concepts for what we would not have seen otherwise in Fast X. While he may not have the experience that Justin Lin had in the franchise, it's not necessarily a bad thing.
