This Latina May Get Her Own ‘Fast & Furious’ Movie and It’s Not Michelle Rodriguez

Can we all agree Letty Ortiz is one of the most memorable characters in the Fast & Furious franchise?

Who can forget this iconic death stare…

Or that time she KO’ed one of Johnny Tran’s henchmen.

Remember when Letty came back from the dead?

OK, not quite. She was *presumed* dead, but we find out she actually survived the crash in Fast & Furious…

And was suffering from a bit of amnesia.

That just means she survived this crazy crash:

Then she got back to doing what she does best. Jumping from moving cars…

And getting into fights…


And getting into more fights.

So, if there was one character you’d want to see in a Fast & Furious spinoff, it would be Letty, right?

The movie blog We Got This Covered is reporting that Monica Fuentes, the character played by Eva Mendes, is rumored to be under consideration for an F&F spinoff.

According to We Got This Covered, Monica Fuentes will reappear in Fast & Furious 8, and if audiences take a liking to her, she may get her own film.


Vin Diesel is one of the F&F producers who has a say in launching the spinoffs. So, Dom – we mean, Vin – don’t forget about Letty, OK?
