Fast and the Furious 3 director Justin Lin talked to about leaving the indie world of Better Luck Tomorrow to direct a summer popcorn movie. "This is a big franchise for the studio. I'm just trying to make a good summer popcorn movie that has a little more to say; that's my goal. I'm not trying to win an Oscar, I just want to stay true to the characters and to the themes and have some kick-ass car chases. Those are the goals."

This sequel tells the story of Shaun Boswell, a 17-year-old American street-racer whose mother brokers a deal that allows him to avoid prison if he leaves the country. Sent to live with his military-employed uncle in Tokyo, the youth finds himself intrigued by the underground phenomenon of drift racing. None of the original characters will be returning.
