The Fast & Furious franchise has been one heck of a high octane ride but what first got its motor running 1-2-3-4-5 & now 6 — is a love story.
Actor Paul Walker & Jordana Brewster play the couple that started it all: Brian and Mia I caught up with the duo in London – where director Justin Lin shot the film.
Jordana Brewster: "Justin makes any city look ridiculous."
Paul Walker: "In a good way."
Jordana: "Ridiculously good."
Talk about ridiculous – we've been getting to know each other since the first fast film.
Shireen: "Does that mean I'm old? That means I'm old right?"
Paul: "Then we are old together."
Shireen: "OK well, if we are gonna go down."
Paul: "We will go down together like Thelma and Louise."
In fast 6, Brian and Mia are living family life on the lamb: But in real life, beating traffic in LA – well, it takes some creativity.
Jordana: "I listen to really boring things in the car, like NPR.."
Paul: "I drum the steering wheel. I'm always carrying a rhythm – even when there isn't music i have a rhythm."
Eventually, fast cars come acalling when the popo asks for help catching a real criminal so, the gang reunites.
The movie is expected to cash in big at the box office this Memorial Day weekend.
Shireen: "Do you guys believe social media has had an impact on the presence of the movie?"
Paul: "If i say one thing with a #FAST 6 everyone responds immediately – they're so excited about it."
33 million plus Facebook fans later – you have to ask – what's made fast – so famous ?
Jordana: "A lot of hard work and no one takes the fans for granted."
In the begiinning:
Paul: "It was low risk at the time, I was unknown, and vin hadn't done a lot and Jordana, hey you were great but that's a fact. Aand what we captured early on, no one knew it… it was the right thing to do at that time."
Paul: "I think the fun part now is going back and asking "what really happened there. what was the catalyst, what was the ingredient."
You can't recreate wheel – but like this movie – you can sure enjoy spinning it – it that rubber i smell?
Remember — don't speed, text, drink, talk to your mother, or make a sandwich while driving. Fast 6 opens in theatres Friday. Happy Memorial Day peeps.
