Paul Walker didn’t return as Brian O’Conner in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and the studio were the ones liable for his nonappearance.
Paul Walker was the essence of the Fast and Furious establishment toward the start, so for what reason didn’t he return for The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift? Presently known as one of the greatest film establishments around the world, Fast and Furious has ascended high from its unassuming beginnings. The first 2001 film made $200 million worldwide on a little financial plan and acquainted watchers with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Walker’s Brian O’Conner. 2 Fast 2 Furious, which featured Walker, multiplied the spending plan yet just earned about $30M increasingly around the world.
For the third passage in the establishment, Universal Pictures ventured to Japan with The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. The film to a great extent centers around new characters, with Lucas Black playing the lead of Sean Boswell. Tokyo Drift is likewise where Sung Kang made his presentation as Han and the story was to a great extent independent to floating across Tokyo rather than racing or working for the cops. The one second when this changed was Diesel making an appearance as Dom at the end, yet numerous fans were astounded Walker didn’t return sooner or later as well.
Walker didn’t repeat his job as Brian in Tokyo Drift, yet that is not on the grounds that he would not like to. He uncovered in the past that his nonappearance boiled down to another bearing that the studio needed to take the Fast and Furious establishment. In a meeting with LA Times in 2015, Walker refered to “legislative issues, studio stuff, a system choice” regarding why he didn’t show up.
Despite the fact that Walker didn’t illuminate precisely why he wasn’t in Tokyo Drift, what he is insinuating may have something to do with how the film changed all through turn of events. Author Chris Morgan told Collider in 2017 that when he initially pitched the continuation of Universal, Tokyo Drift was intended to star Diesel. The story followed Dom going to Tokyo after somebody he knows passed on and he finds out about floating as he endeavors to discover what occurred. Be that as it may, with the to some degree frustrating reaction to 2 Fast 2 Furious, Universal did the change to concentrate on a secondary school setting. Despite the fact that it wasn’t affirmed Walker would return in this unique rendition of Tokyo Drift, the studio compelling the concentration to go to a more youthful cast could be attached to the reasons the on-screen character gave for his nonappearance.
The choice to exclude Walker in Tokyo Drift may have seemed well and good to Universal at that point, however it made the continuation stand apart for some time, as it was the main film to exclude Brian O’Conner. This changed after the deplorable loss of Walker during the creation of Furious 7, as The Fate of the Furious joined Tokyo Drift as passages in the establishment without the previous star. What’s more, despite the fact that F9 will proceed down this way, the tenth portion in the arrangement will incorporate numerous associations with The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift through an assortment of appearances and Han’s arrival.
