It’s critical for every major film studio to pay attention to its fans and take their comments, expectations, wishes, and aspirations into account; otherwise, the target audience may lose interest in the property. It’s a good concept that few franchises have adopted as strongly as Fast & Furious.
Vin Diesel has always kept his ear to the ground as series creator, producer, and all-around figurehead, striving to give fans exactly what they want: a never-ending escalation of the action sequences, the return of popular characters such as Sung Kang‘s Han, or putting the family into outer space at last.
Fast X has been given a title and a logo, and the longtime Dominic Toretto was in sharing mood yesterday, when he followed up his initial post with another statement revealing that Jordana Brewster’s Mia wasn’t included in the original draft of the script.

Following the death of on-screen spouse Paul Walker, there were concerns about Brewster’s continuing presence in The Fast Saga, but she has remained an important member of the group ever since and even got a couple of hero moments in F9 for good measure.
With Fast in sight, there was little doubt that the former band of street racers and criminals would be removed from play. Lin, Diesel, and the rest of the crew were unlikely to leave any of the most memorable faces on the bench with just minutes remaining until they crossed the finish line.
