Michelle Rodriguez Fast and Furious
Los Angeles - Michelle Rodriguez looks set to reprise her role in the sixth Fast and the Furious movie.

The 33-year-old actress is in line to take on the part of Letty Ortiz for the third time in the film franchise since she first played the character - the love interest of Dominic Toretto, who is portrayed by Vin Diesel - in 2001, Variety reports.

Machete Kills

Vin, Paul Walker and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson have all been confirmed to star in the follow up to 2011 movie Fast Five, and Rihanna has also been linked with the forthcoming production and Justin Lin is set to return to direct.

Michelle also looks set to reprise her role as Luz/She in Machete Kills, the sequel to 2010 action motion picture Machete, which starred Robert DeNiro, Jessica Alba and Lindsay Lohan.

Danny Trejo is due to return to take up the titular role of Machete Cortez, a blade-wielding Mexican Federale, and Mel Gibson is expected to play arms dealer Luther Voz, who aims to wreak havoc around the world by launching a missile.

Production for the movie - which is directed by Robert Rodriguez and is also thought to see Jessica return - will start later this month in Texas.
