Today Now! Fast Five screewriter interview – Click above to view video after the jump

With the debut of Fast Five just around the corner, The Onion sat down with its lead screenwriter, five-year-old Chris Morgan to get his take on the film. According to Morgan, the story brief for the movie was simple enough: "I wanted the cars to drive fast, and some of them to explode," he said.

It may seem like a childishly simple way to conceptualize a movie, but the same idea has held strong through a franchise that has irrevocably left its skidmarks on American pop culture. Morgan says he enjoyed almost total creative freedom on the latest Fast and the Furious project, and the final screen play was little altered from the original.

To get Morgan's full take on Fast Five and his impressions of the final product, check out the video after the jump.

      I don't know how The Onion keeps doing it, but they've been consistently LOL for a hell of a long time. the "Chrysler Recalls Neckbelts" is one of my favorites.

      so the whole era of the "ricer" was based off an all makes sense now.

      Yes, this movie looks as dumb as a bag of hammers. But it looks great anyway and it'll probably make bank. A formula movie isn't all bad if you do it well. I live my life 10 seconds at a time.

      Haha, nice. I wasn't huge on Fast and Furious (number 4), but I've gotta say, Fast Five was basically Ocean's Eleven with cars, and really hit the mark.
