Moritz and written by Chris Morgan. The third installment of The Fast and the Furious franchise, it takes place chronologically between the events of sixth and seventh films. The film stars Lucas Black, Nathalie Kelley, Sung Kang, Bow Wow and Brian Tee. The film was shot in Tokyo and parts of Los Angeles, the latter often covered with props and lights to create the illusion of the Tokyo style.
Vin Diesel reprises his role as Dominic Toretto in a cameo at the end. This is the only film in the Fast & Furious franchise during Paul Walker's lifetime to not feature him.
