It’s looks like Justin Lin’s latest “Fast and Furious” movie (part six, in case you’re keeping track at home) will officially go under the title “Fast and Furious 6”, in case you’re wondering. Too bad. I was starting to warm up to “Fast Six”. Oh well.
Anyways, besides that confirmed title, Universal has also officially released a full synopsis for the movie, and for the first time, we finally know what Dom and company will be doing in Europe:
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6. Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Walker) 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 (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). 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.
So there you have it, the full synopsis for “Fast and Furious 6”, due out in theaters May 24, 2013.
Given that we’re hearing Lin is also shooting Part 7, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that the “pardon” Hobbs is promising Dom and crew don’t actually pan out. I could be wrong, of course.
“Fast and Furious 6’s” trailer premieres this Sunday during the Super Bowl.
