The fifth installment finds vehicle fugitives Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian (Paul Walker) in South America fleeing from U.S. Marshals led by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. The Rock expands on his role in the film here.
The film will also reunite former “Fast and Furious” characters Roman (Tyrese Gibson) and Tej (Ludacris) from “2 Fast 2 Furious” and Han (Sung Kang) from “Tokyo Drift”. One also assumes Jordana Brewster will also be back, since at the end of “Fast & Furious” she had entered outlaw territory along with Walker’s Brian. Also, since Han is back, I think it’s reasonable to assume that “Fast Five” will take place before the events of “Tokyo Drift”. Unless, of course, they go the “twin brother” route, which would just be silly.
Justin Lin, who directed “Fast & Furious” and “Tokyo Drift”, will once again direct “Fast Five”.
