Ayer was a member of the creative team that developed the 2001 movie. He claims to have a unique and varied viewpoint on the project. He talked about how he changed the original New York-based, Italian-centric script into a representation of the cultural variety and street racing scene in Los Angeles. Ayer stated on the podcast that he wanted to add authenticity to the films because, at the time, no one was much aware of street racing.
