Or “Fast Six” as they’ll probably end up calling it. The kids will think that’s cool or somethin’. Hell, once you committed to “Fast Five”, there’s really no reason to go back now, so what’s to stop them from calling this one “Fast Six”, then later, “Fast Seven”, etc? Just the box office numbers would be my guess.
Fortunately for all involved, box office worries doesn’t seem to be an issue with “The Fast and Furious” franchise after the fifth movie went for big bucks. The sixth installment will now take the boys to Europe for their car-heavy capers, with Justin Lin back to direct. A seventh movie, we’re told, is also in the works.
And now, courtesy of star Vin Diesel’s Facebook page, check out two official images from the movie. The first, of course, features partners-in-crime Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, and Dwayne Johnson as the guy chasing them. Then again, from the looks of this photo, he’s probably teamed up with them for yet another job. I swear, I don’t know how this guy keeps his job…
And here’s Vin Diesel in, according to the man himself, a shot from the film’s trailer. (The problem with the “Fast and Furious” movies is that they all look so similar, you could toss random stills of Diesel from various installments out there and I’d be hardpressed to figure out which films in the series they were from.)
“Fast Six”, also starring Luke Evans, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Gina Carano, Joe Taslim, Tyrese Gibson, and Sung Kang, drives back into theaters May 24, 2013.
