Michelle Rodriguez set to return for Fast & Furious 6 and Machete Kills
Even though we all knew Michelle Rodriguez would be back as Letty in the next FAST & FURIOUS franchise film (which we will call FAST & FURIOUS 6 since it has no other title at this time), it will still be nice to see a familiar face. I was a little sad when they “killed her off” in the last film because who doesn’t love a somewhat strong female character that can actually drive and break all the stereotypes of female drivers? It was also reported that Gina Carano has joined the film which I’m excited about because I loved her in Steven Soderbergh’s HAYWIRE. Michelle Rodriguez plus Gina Carano could equal a pretty awesome girl fight, not saying it will happen but it could since Carano will be on Dwayne Johnson’s Diplomatic Security Sevice side in the film. No plot lines have been revealed yet, but stay tuned for more information as it comes up. FAST & FURIOUS 6 will be directed by Justin Lin and will start shooting this summer and set to hit theaters on May 24, 2013.
Michelle Rodriguez has also been confirmed to star in the sequel to MACHETE, entitled MACHETE KILLS which I personally care nothing about. Even though MACHETE struck a chord with a lot of audiences, I thought it was very bland and unnecessarily gory. However, Michelle Rodriguez will join Danny Trejo and Mel Gibson in the film. Yes, that’s right Mel Gibson will be the villain Luthor Voz which will go well with his recent public persona. MACHETE KILLS is also supposed to start shooting this summer and will probably hit theaters next year. That would make a very good 2013 for Michelle Rodriguez. (Variety)
