After Fast X Director Justin Lin Dropped Out, Michelle Rodriguez Says New Director Brought Something Fast Hasn’t Had For ‘A Very Long Time’


The Fast & Furious franchise is one of the most popular, and financially successful, film franchises going today, and the series is in the middle of filming its tenth entry. While all the popular characters fans love will be back in Fast X and several more impressive names are joining up, one person who won’t be back is frequent franchise director Justin Lin, but star Michelle Rodriguez says that new Fast X director Louis Leterrier is adding something special to the new film.

Fans were more than a little concerned when Justin Lin, who has directed five of the Fast & Furious movies to date, stepped aside from directing Fast X due to unspecified creative differences.  Lin has since signed on to direct a live-action One-Punch Man movie.  In his place was brought Transporter director Louis Leterrier. Speaking with THR at SDCC, Michelle Rodriguez said that, while she was as nervous as anybody to see Lin leave after two weeks of filming, Leterrier came on board with an incredible amount of energy and love for the franchise that has excited everybody in a way they haven’t in a long time. Rodriguez said… 

He came with all this energy of love. 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 really wants to take it places that it hasn’t gone before. We’ve been at it for 20 years, bro. After all that time, you get jaded and kind of forget what you do it for [until] a director like Louis comes in and reminds you, ‘This is beautiful. Let’s go make magic.’ We’re so lucky to have him bro.
