Michelle Rodriguez Down For Machete Kills And A Sixth Fast & Furious Movie
Those who stayed through the end credits of Linís Fast Five learned that Rodriguezís character, Letty, had not died (as Vin Dieselís Dom has believed), and that she has become the latest target of Dwayne Johnsonís relentless federal agent. The Fast series has transformed into a high-octane soap opera, so bringing a character like Letty back from the dead isnít much of a stretch. That and I always thought she fit well with the brash attitude of the burly franchise.
