Actress Michelle Rodriguez took to Instagram earlier to celebrate the digital release of The Fate of the Furious, and deliver a message to Universal about including more women in the franchise.
“F8 is out digitally today, I hope they decide to show some love to the women of the franchise on the next one,” wrote Rodriguez. “Or I just might have to say goodbye to a loved franchise. It’s been a good ride & Im
grateful for the opportunity the fans & studio have provided over the years… One Love.”
Despite the recent inclusions of Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren, women in the heavily male-dominated series haven’t had the best run (spoiler alert ahead). Jordana Brewster was cut after four films in the wake of Paul Walker’s death, while Elsa Pataky’s Elena Nives was shot in the head in the last film.
