Vin Diesel Paul Walker Fast Five Fast & Furious 6 will Powerslide into Theaters by Summer 2013

SinceĀ Fast Five secured almost $600 million at the worldwide box office already, it’s no shock to hear that yet another installment in the street car racing franchise is a sure thing at this point. Tentatively titled Fast and Furious 6, the project was already being planned by series star Vin Diesel and producer Neal H. Moritz even before this year’s entry – and aims to conclude the trilogy begun by Fast and Furious.

The summer movie season is the ideal time for any chapter in the Fast and the Furious franchise to hit the scene; hence why Universal has already scheduled the sixth flick to arrive during that timeframe in 2013.

Fast and Furious 6 is now scheduled to arrive in theaters over Memorial Day weekend in two year’s time – specifically May 24th, 2013. That won’t allow the film to get a head start on the competition like Fast Five did this year – but, as The Hangover: Part II demonstrated last month, a highly-anticipated sequel (or, in this case, sixquel?) can do big business over the holiday frame.

Deadline says the official line for Fast and Furious 6 is that it will reunite the series’ ensemble cast “for their most dangerous adventure yet.” Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, and Jordana Brewster are all no-brainers to return; that studio logline also suggests that stars like Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Sung Kang, and Gal Gadot should be coming back too.

Dwayne Johnson also seems all but guaranteed to reprise his fan-favorite role as the bad-ass cop Luke Hobbs from Fast Five – plus, the mid-credits scene in that film paved the foundation for possibly both Eva Mendes and (without SPOILING too much) a familiar starlet from an early installment in the franchise to play roles in Fast and Furious 6 as well.

Fast Five Review Fast & Furious 6 will Powerslide into Theaters by Summer 2013

Fast Five all but fully transitioned the franchise from being about high-octane racing to an Ocean’s 11 breed of heist operations – that just happen to feature more physics-defying car chases, hard-hitting stunts, and macho posturing, instead of slick dialogue or professional criminals looking to pull off a job in a covert manner. It was also a fun thrill ride that managed to hit it off with casual moviegoers and film critic alike. So expect plenty more of that in the followup, which Justin Lin looks all but a lock to direct as well.

To reiterate: Fast and Furious 6 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 24th, 2013.

  9. If real fans of fast and the furious movies would look for the real details then they should notice the end of Tokyo drift.

    • you are wierd

  10. i cant wait to see how the baby is going to make a big impact in this movie

  11. I really can’t wait till fast and furious 6 comes out.

  12. I’m looking forward to it. In my opinion car enthusiasts is why this movie took off in the first place. They are now trying to reach a more broad audience which is why they are switching to heist type situations. My favorite out of the five will always be the first one, its the one that caught the eye and sky rocketed the storyline. I hope they keep it car oriented.

  13. I can’t wait for for the Fast and Furious 6 to come out! I can’t wait to see that “familiar actress”, it will be interesting, I can’t wait! :-)

  14. This Is Good movies. I like Want Of Actor Antagonis From Indonesia Joe Taslim.
