After announcing Fast X is now in production, Vin Diesel revealed Mia Toretto, played by Jordana Brewster, was not included in the original script.

In a statement posted on his Instagram page, Vin shared that it was his daughter who told the director, “No Mia No Fast 10.” 

Read his full post below. 

Yes, Your opinion has always mattered. When the F10 script came in, it excluded Mia Toretto…. Someone whom I’ve attributed the brotherhood of Dom and Brian to… I was so disappointed that I couldn’t see how I could continue… 

After all, I wasn’t going to make another Fast unless Brian was back in Four… I don’t need to remind you of the petitions you sent the studio for Letty’s return at the the end of FIve. 

Side note, you will never believe who corrected the very important role of Mia… my daughter, the Alpha Angel, who told the director very plainly and honestly “NO MIA NO FAST 10!” haha. 

The irony, is that the day she was born I was filming with Jordanna and Pablo and it was Jordanna who I first told… profound right?

There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t want to turn back time, talk Pablo out of heading back to LA that thanksgiving weekend… every Fast film I make must at the core always honor my brother Pablo. 

In the real world, I will always look after his family, because in the real world he is family. When his daughter asked me to walk her down the isle… I tear up, and then do it with pride and and honor… when his mother asks me to bring Brian back to the screen… well, I don’t have to tell you how serious I take that. 

Fast could never have been here without the profound love and brotherhood between Dom and Brian, established in 2001. 

Yeah, I am talking too much, but damn, life is short and your comment touched me and hit a cord. 

Thank you for believing in me, in us… I won’t rest until I make you, him… and the universe proud.

All love, Always.
