No plot particulars have been unveiled, so it stays to be witnessed if it will inform Letty’s origin tale or consider spot in the film’s current timeline. Not that the timeline can get any additional convoluted: ‘Tokyo Drift’ came out in 2006 and is the third film in the franchise, but narratively it will take spot just after the fourth, fifth, and sixth movies.
It also just isn’t acknowledged if Rodriguez will staff up with her feminine co-stars Jordana Brewster and Nathalie Emmanuel, but the film’s title implies this will be a solo Letty film. Rodriguez might not have appeared in each individual Rapid & Furious film, but she is a single of the initial associates of the Rapid household so it helps make perception for her to star in her individual spin-off. Coincidentally, a ‘Mad Max Fury Road’ prequel film concentrating on Furiosa, the main feminine lead in ‘Fury Highway,’ is also about to get started output.
