Breaking Down the Master Plan of the 2 Fast 2 Furious "Warehouse Scramble" Scene

What it comes to the Fast and Furious franchise, those responsible for the car selection have an interesting yet challenging job. The selection of automobiles in these films is rather important. Just like casting a role for an actor or actress, each car plays a very specific function.

If the scene is supposed to elicit a certain emotion, the cars within can play a very important role. For example, if the movie is at a point where the viewer needs to get excited and feel a sense of adrenaline, a Toyota Prius wouldn’t get the job done.

This time, we join in with Craig Lieberman, the man responsible for the cars behind early Fast and Furious movies. One of the more challenging scenes he came head to head with was the 2 Fast 2 Furious warehouse scene. In this scene, the idea was to create pure chaos. This was done through the means of an entire collection of automobiles scrambling at once.

The plot twist here was that all of the cars belonged to real enthusiasts. In turn, the enthusiasts would be driving themselves. This was incredibly unconventional. When putting amateurs where stunt drivers would normally be, anything could happen.

Not only did the crew have to pick out the cars. They also had to figure out how to coordinate all of these drivers. It was important to carefully cover their rear ends to make sure it wasn’t an insurance nightmare. We think this is a pretty neat detail for those who get into how films work.

By following along with the video below, we get the inside scoop on how exactly a scene like this manages to come together. It’s certainly a lot easier said than done. In this one, Lieberman gives us the rundown on how the crew literally made magic happen.
