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."
