michelle rodriguez justice for han

There’s more trouble brewing in the Fast and Furious family.

Michelle Rodriguez, who plays Letty, has voiced her displeasure with the way the franchise has treated its female characters in the past, though she seemed to resolve that dispute earlier this year. But now she’s taken to Twitter to dismiss the contributions of writer/producer Chris Morgan, who has been the architect of the Fast franchise since 2006’s The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Specifically, Rodriguez says that Morgan has nothing to do with the “Justice for Han” narrative. Take a look at her comment below. Read More »

“You should know, in terms of Justice For Han, nobody feels that more than us,” Morgan told me in a recent phone interview promoting this week’s spin-off, Hobbs and Shaw. Our full interview will be published soon, but below, you can find out how this film addresses that death and what Morgan is planning for Deckard Shaw’s arc going forward.

MSU Motorcycle Specialty Unit

As the writer and producer of a majority of the movies in the Fast and Furious franchise, Chris Morgan knows a thing or two about high-octane thrillers.
