In 2007, there was a car-themed movie called Redline that was simply terrible. It’s the one that had a promotional event where one of the actors, comedian Eddie Griffin, ended up crashing a Ferrari Enzo.

Well, what many may not know is that the Redline name was previously used as a working title for 2001’s The Fast and the Furious, and at one point was even considered to be the name of the pivotal movie.

Some interesting things we learn includes how the famous Race Wars scene was created. It turns out a number of car club members were involved, driving their own cars in the drag races. We also get to see how a few of the stunts were created, like the famous street race scene.
