Nothing can kill Michelle Rodriguez. Not drag racers, not zombies, not desperate fathers. Nothing.
The frequently ill-fated actress is on board to return to the Fast and Furious series for the upcoming Fast 6, despite the fact that her character was killed off in the fourth film… a practice that is becoming quite the habit with Rodriguez. She’ll be rising from the dead in the upcoming Resident Evil: Retribution. And, of course, there’s LOST.
Fans who stuck around for the post-credits scene at the end of Fast 5 would have been stirred by the suggestion that Rodriguez would be coming back for the following movie; Eva Mendes’ character approached Federal Agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) with a photograph of Letty (Rodriguez), informing him that she was part of a hijacking operation in Berlin the previous night, and asking ominously, “Do you believe in ghosts?”
Another intriguing rumor surrounding Fast 6 involves the potential casting of Rihanna. Although it is hardly official, the music artist has been said to be in talks for a villainous role in the film. Haywire star and MDMA fighter Gina Carano, who was added to the Fast 6 cast in April, has expressed interest in facing off with Rihanna onscreen. Carano told E!, “I would love to see me and Rihanna go at it. That would be hot.”
Luke Evans (Immortals, The Raven) is also in talks to join Fast 6 as a villain. Evans has been offered a role that many believed would go to Jason Statham — apparently, the young actor’s involvement in franchises like Clash of the Titans and Peter Jackson’s next Tolkien adaptation, The Hobbit movies, has earned him the big screen bravado to potentially play bad guy in Justin Lin’s next Fast and Furious flick.
Who would you rather see face off with Carano and The Rock: Rihanna or Evans?
