Bringing It Back to Earth
One of the biggest challenges for director Leterrier was creating a film that would stand out in a franchise that has already gone to great lengths to thrill audiences. "I want to make it my own.
I don't use CG as a basis, I use CG to enhance reality," he said. "So, I sort of brought it back to Earth." This approach required a great deal of trust from the actors, who were asked to perform many of their own stunts.
"There is no hiding behind the CG," Leterrier explains. "You have to show up, do the stunts, be behind the wheel of the car, and ride the same motorcycle, helmet or no helmet." "Fast X" arrives in theaters on May 19th. Get ready for a quarter-mile of pure adrenaline.
