Michelle Rodriguez, one of the returning stars of Justin Lin’s “The Fast and Furious 4″ movie (since titled “Fast and Furious”), recently popped into her Myspace page and left a blog entry for her fans to catch up with her current and future projects. In short, she’s still doing community service, but notes that she’ll be appearing “briefly” in “The Fast and Furious 4″, which she describes as “fun and ass kicking purposes”, whatever that means. Read the rest of Rodriguez’s blog posting below.
MY DEEPEST APOLOGIES FOR BEING SO ALOOF LATELY, I JUST NEEDED A COUPLE OF MONTHS OF COMPLETE DISCONNECT TO POSITION MYSELF AND GET BACK ON TRACK. I HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY THIS COMING YEAR AND THE GROUP EFFORT MESSAGES THE FILMS I’VE WORKED ON HAVE TO OFFER (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF FF4 IT’S AN ACTION FLICK, JUST FOR FUN AND ASS KICKING PURPOSES). I’M CURRENTLY PAYING MY DEBTS TO SOCIETY WITH SOME HIGHWAY CLEAN UP, WORKING ON ‘FAST AND FURIOUS FOUR’ BRIEFLY, SHARPENING UP ON SOME PROPER SPANISH FOR MY PASSION PROJECT ‘TROPICO DE SANGRE’, AND IN JUNE I’LL BE TAKING OFF TO ITALY TO WRITE MY LONG AWAITED FIRST FEATURE FILM PROJECT… I WOULD LOVE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU GUYS HAVE ABOUT ANYTHING THAT TICKLES YOUR CURIOSITY THIS WEEK, SO PLEASE; FEEL FREE TO START ASKING, WHETHER ITS HERE ON MY SPACE OR ON THE FLY OFFICIAL SITE LEIGH HAS HOOKED UP FOR THOSE THAT WISH TO CONNECT.
The passage about working on FF4 only “briefly” would seem to jive with everything we’ve heard — that Rodriguez will indeed reprise her Letty character, except it’ll be a pretty brief appearance as Letty ends up killed, thus setting up the rest of the film.
