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 »

michelle rodriguez leave fast and furious

The Fast and Furious movies have been paragons for diversity in action blockbusters, boasting a multiracial cast of Hispanic, black, and Asian characters long before superhero franchises caught on. It was in part thanks to the films’ street-racing roots in the Latino community, and in part due to star Vin Diesel‘s insistence on working with only diverse casts.
