When Fast And Furious is released on April 3, 2009 expect droves of teenagers excited about wildly painted cars and at least a few adults who loved the original series and aren't there ironically. We're not the biggest fans of the series, but the combination of the series' best characters, Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto and Paul Walker's Brian O'Connor, with the arguably the best director, Justin Lin of Tokyo Drift, could be a winning combination for the franchise.
This video clearly shows the Grand National-destroying, Skyline-drifting series to add a touch of the high-paced direction and crisp cinematography of the Bourne films with the awful cheesy dialogue of the original. Will it beat the box office for the original? By $1 million? By $10 million?
Ask any producer. Any real producer. It don't matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning's winning.
