Fast and furious is one of the most interesting film franchises at the moment. Apart from having a dedicated fan base, several Hollywood class A stars, and box-office power owned by other franchises, fans sometimes forget that it started as a film about undercover police investigating street racing. Since then, he has switched from genre to genre which tries to build a defined identity, evolves into one of the wildest series of actions in theaters and brings the audience through everything from cars that fall from planes to submarines that chase ice.
With all the strangeness experienced by this series, it is understandable that fans, both old and new, tend to get some facts that are mixed up about this series. Whether it's stunts that seem too assertive, schedules that are interrelated (which are not too complicated, but we will return to it), or the future of the franchise as a whole, no one can really blame fans for their questions about Fast and furious film. That's why we are here to set straight records, or in this franchise case, set the series on a straight and narrow path for some of the most common misconceptions of fans in the world's largest racing franchise, including the return of some MIA characters, film ventures others, and, as much as we hate to think about, the end of this series.

20 Franchises Get Their Name From Other Films
In 1955, legendary producer Roger Corman released a film starring actor nominee Oscar John Ireland (who directed the film) and Oscar-winning actress Dorothy Malone about a truck driver who ran away from the law after being accused of being a fake. Then, he took a female Jaguar sports car and went with him, with both of them falling in love while the film was taking place. The name of the film? Fast and furious.
While the 1955 film played very differently from the 2001 film of the same name, Corman did have a hand on both projects because he had to license the title to be used in the blockbuster franchise which would soon become Universal's property. For a smart nod to the original film, maybe this series can show young Dominic borrowing Letty's car while running away from the police.
19 A Lost Life Due to a Regulated Accident
Unfortunately, the ongoing movie accidents are a recurring trend in the film industry, with some even resulting in the lives of the players and crew missing. While last year The Fate of the Furious not seeing a human being seriously injured, the same cannot be said for a horse named Jupiter.
When the crew was filming in Iceland, a piece of the artificial iceberg was caught by strong winds and thrown into a nearby cage, where Jupiter and at least one other horse were being stored. Jupiter's feet are affected and the horse must be dropped. Another horse was injured but not so bad. According to TMZinsurance can cover the costs of broken horses and fences.

Paul Walker said Los Angeles Times that he did not appear in 2006 The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift because "politics, studio items, [and] a regime decision. "As for Diesel, he refused to return for 2003 2 Fast 2 Furious (although offered at least $ 20 million) due to dislike for the script and the desire to focus on 2004 The Chronicles of Riddick. In fact, the only reason he entered Tokyo Drift is getting the right to Riddick and its character. Fortunately for fans, Diesel returned to the franchise in 2009 fast and roaring, and convince Walker to join him for the trip.
17 Some Major Stunts Are Real
The things that are attached to the audience's mind about it fast and roaring a film is a wild action, most of which might make us think, "It can't be real."
However, fans will be surprised to find out how much of the decisive achievement is real. The Telegraph reveals that Camaro-yacht jumped in 2 Fast 2 Furious, tanker robbers on fast and roaring, and multi-skyscraper jumps on Furious 7 contains dangerous levels of realism. Even one of the most memorable stunts of the franchise, the car stopped by Furious 7, is authentic, according to the film action coordinator. The scene consists of two separate actions, with the first involving dropping the car from the plane over the Arizona desert, and another lift car a few meters above the ground before sliding down safely. Isn't the magic film noble?
16 Luke Hobbs Is Not Always Dreamed For The Rock
Since Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's debut as US Diplomatic Security Service Luke Hobbs at Fast Five, he has become one of the most loved characters of the franchise. However, a very different actor was originally wanted for the role: Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones.
In a Facebook video posted by Vin Diesel to thank his fans for their support in his career, he revealed the decision to swap Jones with Johnson was thanks to one fan's desire. "There's a girl named Jen Kelly who said," I really want to see [you and Johnson] cooperate, & # 39; "he said.

Unfortunately, it proves to be a little too authentic for viewers, because the number of real-life road races is increasing because of the popularity of this film (let's hope no one tries to duplicate the ending movie scene!). Remember: it might look cool in movies, but this doesn't make it okay.
14 Lucas Black Expected Back
While The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift seen by many as the scapegoat of the film series, he still has fans thanks to the spectacular driving scene and the performance leads Lucas Black as Sean Boswell.

Black IMDb The page also lists him as an actor rumored in the 2020s Fast & Furious 9.
13 Some Actors Don't Even Have a Driver License
People will think that everyone involved with a series that is centered around the car will know how to drive. Strangely, this is not the case Fast and furious. The series led Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster not to have their SIMs when they were thrown in 2001 Fast and furious, so each of them must take a driving test. "There's a clock ticking," Brewster said VH1. "If I don't get my license, I won't be able to get insured for the film."
Licensing issues (pun intended) continue in the next film, as Devon actress / model Aoki (who plays Suki) does not have a license, according to TeenHollywood.com. Fortunately, all the actresses have been well trained and have since gone to tear the road (at least on the big screen).

While Fast and roaring The franchise has won several MTV Movie, Teen Choice, and Saturn Award wins and nominations, some fans believe this series deserves higher critical recognition. Vin Diesel is even supported Furious 7 for Best Picture in the Oscar category.

When filming The Fate of the Furious, Dwayne Johnson took to social media to summon some of his male co-stars. Although it's not clear who he meant, many people saw the insult as a direct shot at the leading man, Vin Diesel. Even though the situation was spread for a while, The Rock later revealed that he had never filmed any scene with the actor. This, along with the words of Tyrese Gibson who expressed his dislike of Johnson's solo films, replenished the speculation of fans of The Rock's feud with several players. While the feud has cooled recently, Johnson's recent comments about his hostility with Gibson being "one-sided" may be the next match to ignite this player-member goal brush.
9 Several Films Planned Back-to-Back Shot

Who knows what the next franchise will do?
7 Race is still part of the series
Although Fast and roaring The series began as a street racing franchise, since it has evolved to focus less on driving and more on the theme of theft and spying (more on this later). Even so, this series does not forget its roots, as evidenced in the latest films.

However, the answer is simple.
The fourth, fifth and sixth film takes place thereafter 2 Fast 2 Furious, except for Fast & Furious 6Medium-credit scene. This is the full version of Han's death, which means Tokyo Drift happened after Fast & Furious 6.

After finished Furious 7franchising must be smooth in terms of chronology, or, again, maybe just for now.

While Michelle Rodriguez realized that her character died fast and roaring not necessarily permanent, he did not expect to see Letty mentioned at the end Fast Five because he wasn't called to shoot any scenes. "I didn't find out until I actually went to the theater and saw it for myself," he said Yahoo! Film.
