Fast and Furious

The topic of gender inequality in Hollywood hasn't been far from the headlines in recent years, and one recent post has reminded everyone that it's not a matter which is about to go away any time soon.

In a move which has gotten tongues wagging in the movie industry, Michelle Rodriquez has threatened to take her leave of the Fast and Furious franchise if more isn't done to acknowledge women.

Alongside three images, the 38-year-old has made reference to both the film and her concerns with producers' choices.

"F8 is out digitally today, I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one. Or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise," she wrote.

"It's been a good ride & Im grateful for the opportunity the fans & studio have provided over the years… One Love," she finished.
 

The post, which has been liked more than 200,000 times, has divided opinion among her followers.

Responding to Michelle's post, fans of the actress pleaded with her to reconsider her plans, with one writing: "Can't imagine fast and furious without you."

However, not everyone was as supportive, with many Instagram users keen to tell that her potential departure would have little impact ont he franchise as a whole.

"Pfft. You wouldn't be missed. Fast 5 was the best in the series so far. You're a supporting role get over yourself," wrote one.

"Doesn't change the fact that Michelle is behaving like a spoiled brat by posting a comment like that on here. There are ways to express this and the way she did it was entirely unprofessional. Bye," added another.

Michelle has featured in five out of eight Fast And Furious films.

Porsche has filed a response to Meadow Walker's wrongful death lawsuit.

Two months ago Meadow alleged that the Porsche Carrera GT lacked safety features that could have prevented the accident. Now, the car company is defending themselves against several accusations.  

In court documents obtained by E! News, Porsche alleges that Paul "knowingly and voluntarily assumed all risk, perils and danger in respect to the use of the subject 2005 Carrera GT."

The company goes on to state that the "risk and dangers were open and obvious and known to him and that he chose to conduct himself in a manner so as to expose himself to such perils, dangers and risks, thus assuming all the risks involved in using the vehicle."

The company also believes that Meadow is barred from receiving any compensation because Paul was both “a knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the car." 

In September, Meadow and her lawyers filed a lawsuit alleging that Porsche knew that the specific car in Paul's case "had a history of instability and control issues."

In respond to the company’s latest statement on the issue, Meadow’s attorney is continuing to argue that her father was not at fault in the tragic accident.

“It is beyond regrettable that Porsche is trying to deflect its own responsibility by blaming the victim—Paul Walker—for his own death by getting into the passenger seat of its Carrera G.T." 

The statement continued: "Contrary to Porsche's assertions, the facts are clear: Paul was the passenger in a car that was not designed to protect its occupants in a crash on a dry, empty straightaway in broad daylight and at speeds well below the vehicle's advertised capabilities." 

Jeff Milam, Meadow’s attorney concluded by saying: "If Porsche had designed the car to include proper safety features, Paul would have survived, he would be filming Fast and Furious 8, and Meadow Walker would have the father she adored."

Paul Walker’s big screen legacy will live on with the help of his beloved brothers.

The late actor’s brothers are helping to “fill in small gaps” in Fast & Furious 7 action sequences not finished before the actor’s death, producers said yesterday.

Walker died in a car crash during a break in filming last November, forcing a halt to production.

“We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film,” producers wrote to fans in a Facebook post.

The decision to resume filming was “the only choice,” the statement said. “We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that, too.”

“We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our ‘Fast’ family,” the post said. “Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us, too.”

The movie was to have been released this summer, but Universal pushed it back to a U.S. release of April 10th, 2015.

“This film is the most important we’ve ever done together,” the post said. “It will allow the character of Brian O’Conner to live on and let us celebrate Paul in his most defining role.”

Walker’s character is a staple of the long-running film franchise.

Directed by James Wan, it also stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez and Jason Statham.
