The Fate of The Furious Brings a Slew of Fast & Furious Toys

But it turns out, the latter nearly missed out on the career-making role of Dominic Toretto as studio Universal initially wanted Justified's Timothy Olyphant to play the protagonist instead.

"I had been working with Paul Walker on another movie, Skulls, and I gave him the script [for Fast and the Furious \/em ]". When they brought the idea to Universal, the studio said that if they got Timothy Olyphant - best known for his work in Deadwood and Justified - they would green light the movie.

We are reunited in Cuba with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his beloved family: Dom's wife and fellow badass Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), whose face was designed for close-ups; technological mastermind Tej Parker (Chris "Ludacris" Bridges), similarly gifted Ramsey (Nathalie Emmanuel, "Game of Thrones") and amusing guy Roman (Tyrese Gibson).

Neil added: "The luckiest thing that ever happened to us is Tim Olyphant turned us down". He\u0027s a great actor. The movie stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, and Charlize Theron, but it's the first not to feature Paul Walker, who died midway through filming the last film. "In fact, I\u0027m curious to see what that movie would have been".

"I went and met him at Kate Mantilini and he wasn't a star yet, but the great thing about Vin is he always believed he was a star. Lucky for both of us that happened".

So, with the Fate of the Furious set for release on April 14th, 2017 in the United States, we have been working fast and yes.cannot resist.furiously to review all the latest toys.
