Christopher Nolan is a fan of the 'Fast and Furious' franchise

The director has shared his likeness for the film 'Tokyo Drift'

December 14, 2020

Critically acclaimed director Christopher Nolan recently came as a guest on MTV's Happy Sad Confused podcast, where he expressed his love for the Fast and Furious franchise, reported IGN.  Nolan expressed how much he enjoys the entire franchise, and how the movies have gotten wilder and more unbelievable - though he still mostly prefers the first movies in the saga, particularly Tokyo Drift.

“I’m sort of an original recipe [guy]," Nolan said. "I mean the Rob Cohen original. But I’ve got a very soft spot for Tokyo Drift, actually. And then the skill as Justin Lin’s iterations, as they got crazier and bigger and crazier and bigger, they became something else, but something else kind of fun."

"The fun thing about those movies is even as they’ve gotten bigger and bigger and bigger, as sequels have to do," he added, "everyone always complains that sequels get bigger but we’re the people making sequels get bigger, we do want them bigger, you don’t want them smaller, it’s the Alien 3 lesson that [David] Fincher learned. You can do it but it’s not going to make anybody happy, even though personally I love that film, a lot more than he does in fact.”
