Bow Wow & Lucas Black to Headline "Fast and the Furious 3"

Hanh Nguyen of Zap2it.com brings some new casting notices for the third entry in the "Fast and the Furious" franchise, which is scheduled to begin shooting in Japan fairly soon.

Bow Wow, "the 18-year-old rapping actor will fulfill his need for speed with "The Fast and the Furious 3," the latest installment of the popular street-racing film franchise.

"Me and Lucas Black are actually starring in that movie," says Bow Wow. "'Fast and the Furious 3: Tokyo.' It's gonna be hot and different. My first action movie, so it's gonna be great."

Directed by Justin Lin ("Better Luck Tomorrow"), the story revolves around a not-so-ugly American who flees to Tokyo to avoid prison for his illegal racing ways. He discovers the next level in rubber-burning adrenalin rushes: drift racing. The underground motor sport challenges drivers to accelerate through hairpin turns and then spin out of them, making for hair-raising races through city streets.

"It starts filming in the first week of October," says the rapper. "After [promoting 'Roll Bounce'] I go to Europe for a week and then I'm back over here for three and a half months. Then we're over in Tokyo and Japan for three and half weeks."

Yeah... I might consider this game since I'm getting kinda bored of the bubblewrap game. Well, once this movie comes out, I'm moving my mazda to the garage so that noone "drifts" into it. This movie is going to kill the reputation of drift like how FnF killed the reputation of drag racing.

Train wreck? But what about this impeccable logic:

"My first action movie, so it's gonna be great."

Yes, it's sad that Paul Walker will not be back. I'm sure this lunkhead is busy crapping up some other movie. I saw the trailer for 'Into The Blue', what a steaming pile of crap that looks to be.
