Rumour: Fast & Furious 8 to revolve around Eva Mendes’ character?

April 7th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Latino Review’s Umberto Gonzalez is reporting on Instagram that Fast  & Furious 8 may revolve around the character of Monica Fuentes, played by Eva Mendes.

Fuentes was first introduced in 2 Fast 2 Furious and then returned in the  fifth movie, so given the universe that exists within these movie, we’d say this is probably a pretty possible scenario.

Just for the record though, we really want to see the return of Carter Verone, played by Cole Hauser in the second movie. He did, after all, swear he would come back and have revenge on Brian and Roman and, even though Paul Walker is gone, Verone could certainly come after Roman… and with the return of Mendes, we might see it happen.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
