Bow Wow, "the 18-year-old rapping actor will fulfill his need for speed with "The Fast and the Furious 3," the latest installment of the popular street-racing film franchise.
"Me and Lucas Black are actually starring in that movie," says Bow Wow. "'Fast and the Furious 3: Tokyo.' It's gonna be hot and different. My first action movie, so it's gonna be great."
Directed by Justin Lin ("Better Luck Tomorrow"), the story revolves around a not-so-ugly American who flees to Tokyo to avoid prison for his illegal racing ways. He discovers the next level in rubber-burning adrenalin rushes: drift racing. The underground motor sport challenges drivers to accelerate through hairpin turns and then spin out of them, making for hair-raising races through city streets.
"It starts filming in the first week of October," says the rapper. "After [promoting 'Roll Bounce'] I go to Europe for a week and then I'm back over here for three and a half months. Then we're over in Tokyo and Japan for three and half weeks.""
Makes sense to have a Fast and the Furious set in the place where the import scene started.... But Bow Wow? I'm sure the action will be great though, and the cars will be cool, and that's the reason most people liked the movies anyway...
Hmmm.... I don't know. As a female who isn't impressed much by cars (unless they're shiny and pretty) the draw to the other two movies (at least for me) was the eye candy. ::drool Paul Walker:: Bow-Wow and my google search of Lucas Black aren't cutting it.
I find it funny that they were quited to be "popular" I thought the second one did pretty poorly at the box office. All that matters anymore is opening weekends anyways, so if a studio can ensure big numbers in the first three days, it seems like any project will be greenlit.
One more movie to avoid.
