With talk of The Fast and the Furious 6 already beginning to heat up, despite the fact that the script is still being worked on, Jordana Brewster has discussed why she thinks that the franchise has been so successful. Jordana laid the majority of the praise on director Justin Lin, who she claims has done a fantastic job to keep the movies fresh.
Brewster explained, “Justin Lin does a really great job at reinventing it every time, by adding different elements and taking it to different countries. Part of the appeal is that he refreshing it. He doesn’t take it for granted that the fans are going to be along for the ride. I think the scope of it, and adding The Rock. And then, going to Brazil added a fresh element.”
She added, “I think the writing was really good. And, making it a heist movie transformed it. People were surprised that we could keep it fresh. Maybe people had expectations that it would fail, and it didn’t.” The Fast and the Furious 6 is set to see the return of Michelle Rodriguez, following the tease at the end of Fast Five. The Fast and the furious 6 is expected to be released on May 24, 2013.
