Michelle Rodriguez Returning to Machete, Fast and Furious Series
One of the more popular action stars, Michelle Rodriguez has two more projects — both sequels — to add to her schedule. According to Variety, Rodriguez will return to the Machete and Fast and Furious franchises very soon.
Rodriguez played Luz in the original Machete and will presumably return as the same character. Machete Kills is filming this summer under the watchful eye of Robert Rodriguez, although he’s noted he might have to hand the film over to another director if he has to move on to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. In the original, Luz split her time between selling tacos and helping spur revolution as She.
Meanwhile, the actress will return to the Fast and Furious franchise. Rodriguez played Dom’s (Vin Diesel) girlfriend Letty in the original film and then again in 2009’s Fast & Furious. Fans will remember that Letty supposedly died during Fast & Furious, but there was a tease at the end of Fast Five hinting that she’s still alive. Filming for what has been dubbed Fast Six begins in Europe in June.
