"Fate of the Furious" female lead star, Michelle Rodriguez, has revealed who is behind the family central theme of the film franchise.

While speaking with The Los Angeles Times, Rodriguez credited Vin Diesel, the pivotal member of the franchise, as the person who came up with the family-theme ever since the first installment "The Fast and the Furious."

"It's something that came out of Vin's mouth when he didn't like the line that was there, and I love how it caught wildfire," the 38-year-old actress said during a phone conversation with the publication. "At the end of the day the movie is all about that. If you've got no heart to keep together all the blowing up and explosions, nobody really cares."

The last seven franchise installments of "Fast and the Furious" have stayed true to its central theme. However, the latest one, "The Fate of the Furious," will double down the theme, as said on Cinemablend, especially with Dominic Torreto's (Vin Diesel) sudden shift to the dark side.

He betrays his family after being blackmailed by cyberhacker called Cipher (Charlize Theron), as said on the LA Times. Veteran members of the family, mainly played by Rodriguez, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Kurt Russell and Nathalie Emmanuel, will try everything in their power to stop Torreto. This event also opens up the opportunity for Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham's characters to team-up.

"The Fate of the Furious" also introduces new characters into the franchise: Helen Mirren, who plays as Owen and Deckard Shaw's mother, Magdalene, and Scott Eastwood as Eric Reisner.

Meanwhile, the opening night of "The Fate of the Furious" is now at $10.4 million at 3,310 theaters as of Thursday night according to Universal, Deadline reported. It is still slightly behind Marvel's 2014 film "Guardians of the Galaxy," which had managed to get $11.2 million on its first night.
