Dear Chris Morgan (writer, films 3-7), Justin Lin (director, films 3-6), and Neal H. Moritz (producer, films 1-7):
I hadn’t realized that we’re up to film #6 in The Fast and the Furious saga, with #7 coming next year. Wow. And I also read that it is Universal Studios’ biggest franchise of all time. Look at this collection of greatness. Way to go.
Just wondering a few things:
1. Mr. Morgan, how have all the characters not died yet in all their dangerous and illegal street racing situations?
2. Mr. Lin, how does one direct a series of films whose action is largely computer generated? Do you work weekends?
3. Mr. Moritz, how rich are you?
4. How were films #1-5 insufficient enough to warrant the 2.4 billion dollar chain of cinematic splendor we have today?
I’ve never seen a film go up to #7, so congrats on this. (Well, I’m guessing there are some Mary Kate and Ashley Olson movies, but nobody counts those direct-to-VHS ones, do they?)
Please keep up the good work of unnecessary violence and sexism; and no, Vin Diesel didn’t ask me to write this note,
