So much to tell you… so much to share… as you know, we have been filming in Scotland. We threw a party for the crew last night in appreciation for all of their hard work. It was one of those moments that so often in the past we were together smiling and getting everyone drunk, especially Justin. Haha. Who by the way would make you so proud with what he is accomplishing with this film. Nathalie was there, in her loving spirit. Oh, and John Cena was there, who you would just love. His gratitude is palpable… and knowing you, you would just want him to win. This week the studio came to meet about the next chapter, your ears were ringing again. You would have gotten a kick out of the fact that we met in a chapel. It was profound… normally today I would be planning how to embarrass you with a birthday cake. Haha. Instead I reflect on how lucky I am to call you my brother. The tears never go away, but they change… from that of mourning to that of grace. We only hope to make you proud. Speaking of which, guess what message I woke up to… your daughter. Meadow sending me love on this day. Wow, she knows me so well. She has your heart. Happy birthday… it’s amazing, but somehow you continue to make the world a better place.
Justin Lin and the writing team are so committed… one can’t help but to be excited to make magic.
In a dinner meeting… just realized I was working with Justin Lin the day each of these angels were born. Surreal…
You have heard me say that 7 was for Paul and 8 is FROM Paul… Is it a coincidence that on Pablo’s birthday I had a three hour conversation about the NY Fast Trilogy with Justin Lin…
I was honored to speak at Justin Lin’s hands and feet ceremony… We are both from humble beginnings and yet we share an insatiable drive to make magic. Congratulations again brother.
