FAST AND THE FURIOUS 4 "Plot" Details Now Emerging!!

Published at: April 10, 2008, 10:12 a.m. CST by merrick

Merrick here...
Details are emerging regarding FAST AND THE FURIOUS 4 & what it's about (besides fast cars, hot women, and Paul Walker's poser lifelessness). We'd originally heard the film was about Walker & Vin Diesel joining-up to infiltrate a drug lord's operation. Evidently, this is correct...but we hadn't heard the motivation for the guys going undercover. One of our readers sent in some details from the film's set, which fills in some blanks. I tried to write our reader for more details (I'm not even sure if the name this person used to sign the e-mail was a "handle", or their real name, so I'm not sure how to credit in this case). Unfortunately, the e-mail bounced...but this is what we got.

SPOILER WARNING!!!


Just literally got in from doing some (job deleted by editor) work for FAST AND THE FURIOUS 4. I don't know how much you know about the movie, but here's what I found out: The girl from the first movie (Michelle Rodriguez) gets killed. Vin Diesel's character goes after her killer. He's forced to team up with Paul Walker again. They both go undercover for the main bad guy. John Oritz is going to blow you sneakers off in this movie - he is BAAAAAAD! The director is a man named Justin Lin, and he's a sweetheart. He said he wants to do "one more" FAST AND THE FURIOUS after this. He's having a great time.
This information is mirrored a beyondhollywood.com, who've posted a SPOILER IMAGE from a Jordanna Brewster fan site (note the stenciled shirts worn by the folks in the picture...referring to Rodriguez's character). They also have (more or less) the same plot information mentioned above (a few more details). You can find the spoiler pic, and the info...

HERE!!!

FAST AND THE FURIOUS 4 (placeholder title) will be in theaters next Summer.

    and I bet I can tell you the whole plot. Some issue only racing can solve..lots of faggy looking cars....pretty people with problems. I'd also bet both my nuts that the lines "all up in my grill" and "ballieve dat" will show up.

Way to totally insult the fine group of cinema geeks that visit this site. I know you guys think your cool because you get info from people in the industry but this is a film FAN website, meaning fans of GOOD movies come here. Then you feed them shit like this. Just use your best judgment next time someone sends some shit like this in, you know what people really want to hear about, it's not news about the fuckin fast and furious. For shame. (and if you like cars, I dont give a fuck that's no excuse)

Herc is only now covering Dr. Who (after it's a big hit) and Herc refused to cover DEXTER, but covered countless other shitty, non-sci-fi t.v. series and now you are covering a sequel to a movie your main audience never gave a shit about in the first place!

    by JERRY HORROR

    They have to ramp up the tone to a revenge film, up the violence and actually place the protagonist in real peril. A really good over the top, scenery chewing bad guy, wouldn't hurt either. If Univeral was smart, they'd use this as bookends to their franchise. Of course they won't and we'll see direct to video sequels with Zac Effron in like six months.

    'Fast and Furious 4 "Plot" Details' I agree

    by CrichtonAstronut

    about the funniest. Actually sounds kinda fun and popcornish. The first one was pretty decent, mostly cause of Vin. 3rd one was okay, the chick was indeed hot. Never saw the second one cause, from the trailers, it pretty much looked like the first without Vin, so what was the point. Chick in the first one was pretty hot too, sorry to see her go, but Vin's back.
