Leterer said:

“Well, it was important for me to bring my flair to it. My flair is reality, is physics, puts the actors in the action, never separates action and storytelling and emotion. Everything stirs the pot a little and brings everyone into this controlled chaos.”

This isn’t the first time Leterrier has spoken out about his shooting experience Fast X. In a separate interview with Total Film, the director expressed that he did the first few takes after signing on to the film Fast X were “disheartening” because he wasn’t well prepared.
