Since Dom and Brian's Rio heist toppled a kingpin's empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.
Meanwhile, Hobbs has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty.
The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
Justin Lin has opted to move away from the Fast & Furious series after finishing his responsibilities with Fast & Furious 6, bringing a four-movie association to a close.
Lin took the reins for The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift, and has directed the subsequent three films in the series, but it seems that the director will not be returning for round seven.
Production is expected to begin on the next movie as soon as this summer, with Universal eyeing a summer 2014 release date for the latest in the adrenaline-soaked action franchise.
However, such a fast-track schedule is thought to have dissuaded Lin from returning, with the director unwilling to compromise his work in order to hit next year's release date.Source: www.totalfilm.com
Luke Evans, the Welsh actor best known for roles in Immortals, The Raven and Tamara Drewe, has apparently been offered the lead villain role in The Fast And The Furious 6 (or Fast Six, or whatever it ends up being called).
Twitch is reporting that the actor - who'll next be seen in The Hobbit - has been offered the role previously turned down by Jason Statham, which would see him joining returning members of the testosterone-fuelled franchise including Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson.
The rumour mill has recently been suggesting that Michelle Rodriguez will also be returning, and Haywire star Gina Carano is also in talks for a role.
When you factor in other rumour that's been doing the rounds recently - namely that Rihanna is also in talks for a villain role - Fast Six could see some gender balance restored to the franchise's ass-kickery. Although we're not holding our breath on that last rumour just yet...Source: www.totalfilm.com
Dwayne Johnson has revealed that he's sure a sixth Fast & Furious movie is about to spin into production.
The actor recently starred in Fast Five, the fifth film in the car-obsessed movie series, which cleaned up nicely at the box office.
There's already been talk of a sixth film that would focus more on a heist story than just continuing the series' love affair with car chases, and Johnson sounds interested in returning.
"I'm sure they're getting ready to start writing away," he tells Access Hollywood. "The best part about the success of Fast Five is the fact of how much the fans love it."
Johnson has one condition for signing up to a sequel, though. "Well, it all depends… on how much ass I could kick in that movie," he jokes.
Next up for Johnson could be a role in G. I. Joe 2, with the actor currently in negotiations to play a character called Roadblock. Badass.Source: www.totalfilm.com
