Become the most solid franchise of Universal,the ninth installment of 'Fast & Furious' could have a very important low. The actress Michelle Rodriguez,who plays Letty in the saga, not yet signed to participate in the next film and is not entirely clear if he wants to continue accompanying Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel). The requirement that he sets to continue is the same as he pointed out several months ago:the script must be "inclusive".
In an interview for the Vanity Fair, in which he publicly supported Liam Neeson after his unfortunate comments about an incident in his past, the actress confessed that she was not sure to return to the saga to be in her ninth installment."I do not know if I'm going back, first I have to read the script, as soon as I read it, I'll know"he commented.
Right there is when he revealed the condition he puts to continue in the franchise. "I hope it is inclusive. If it is, then I will accept to return or not. At this moment, my energy is completely directed towards the feminine and to support women ",Rodriguez said, showing her support for the female characters have more presence in a saga known to be focused on a mostly male audience. "I have been good part of my life shooting weapons and almost always joining the boys, watching how they scratched the balls[…]Now I feel the poetry, beauty and sensuality of women and the power that we have together.They have to show more love to women. I do not know which way they are going, but I do know where I'm going. We will see if our paths coincide ",He said.
It is not the first time that the actress plans to leave the saga. Already in June of 2017, Michelle Rodriguez declared that she was shufflingleave the franchise if it did not show "some affection" to the female characters.In fact, he chose to participate in 'Fast & Furious 8' after Vin Diesel asked him and supported their demands.
Taking into account that 'Fast & Furious 9' has its release date on April 10, 2020, the actress has some time to read the script and decide whether or not to continue in the saga.However, if he opted to leave, Universal would have very little time to try to make up for his absence.

In addition, Universal is preparinganother spin-off, starring entirely women, and which will be written by Nicole Perlman, Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
