Michelle Rodriguez may leave ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise


Actress Michelle Rodriguez has threatened to leave The Fast and the Furious franchise by taking a stand for her female costars.

In a post on Instagram, she expressed her feelings that she may leave her role as Letty Ortiz in the multi-billion dollar film series because of how it represents women.

She wrote, “F8 is out digitally today, I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one. Or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise. It’s been a good ride & Im grateful for the opportunity the fans & studio have provided over the years… One Love.”

Rodriguez had previously stated in an interview with Entertainment Weekly on how her character Letty, had little interaction (or limited dialogue) with Jordana Brewster, who played Mia Toretto, the sister to Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto.

We shall see what the future holds in store for Letty when the next installment of Fast & Furious hits theaters in April 2019.
