I'm excited for most of his projects. I just hope they get done right. I would hate if they get rushed and then the stories suffer because a release date has already been set or something like that.

I'd like to see what else he has to bring. I didn't like Tokyo Drift, but the last 2 one turned out well to my liking.

I agree...but I could have done without the second and third one which was the Tokyo Drift. I did like the last 2 also and I think I'll like this next one because of what the plot is going to be about. I can't wait to see this one.
