a few details on the fast and the furious 4

It's been a little while since I've heard from Justin Lin, who is currently hard at work at the fourth Fast and the Furious movie for Universal, to be released next year. Yes, they said it couldn't be done. But why the hell not? The movie will reunite Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, the stars of the original movie. That ought to be at least mildly interesting.

Turns out, one more cast member from the first movie will be on board for this as-yet-untitled installment: Michelle Rodriguez Will Be Fast and Furious Again. Nice. Looks like Justin's got his hands full. Big budget, fast cars, lots of stars. Good luck with that. But what's it about? Here's the quick and dirty synopsis that's been floating around the web:
Brian (Paul Walker) is freed from prison (the authorities found out that he let Dominic played by Vin Diesel go at the end of the first film) to help the feds stop a heroin importer known as Braga. With the help of an informant named James Park, Brian – and ultimately Dominic Toretto--wins a place on the criminal's team, where he--and his flashy Nissan plan to catch the man red-handed.
Who's this James Park fellow? That's what I want to know. Word on the street is, the movie is actually a prequel, so it looks like we may see Sung Kang back as Han. (It was established in Tokyo Drift that Han used to run with Dominic at some point.) Sweet. Hoping to hear a few more upates on this project in the near future... Justin, throw us a bone! The movie is scheduled to hit theaters in summer 2009.
