Paul Walker stars as a rookie cop who goes undercover to infiltrate an illegal Los Angeles street-racing gang and investigate a jewelry heist; the plot thickens when other members of the gang begin to suspect he’s an imposter. Directed by Rob Cohen (“The Skulls”), pic stars Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Rick Yune and Michelle Rodriguez in her first role since last year’s indie “Girlfight.” The story was adapted for the screen by Gary Scott Thompson and David Ayer from an article by Ken Li, who reported for Vibe on street-racing gangs that transform Japanese sports cars into race cars.
