Justin Lin returns behind the camera for the sixth instalment in the incredibly successful franchise, which has seen new life breathed into it since Fast & Furious rebooted everything, and with its release date fast approaching, leading man Vin Diesel has put out a new photo from the set through his Facebook, along with the words,
Plot details are still being kept under wraps, which is excellent in my books.
Diesel has said that the Super Bowl will be our first look at the upcoming blockbuster, so expect good things to come our way on 3rd February.
Diesel returns in the lead alongside Paul Walker, with an expectedly brilliant supporting cast, headed up by Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Luke Evans, Joe Taslim, Tyrese Gibson, Gina Carano, Gal Gadot, and the excellent Sung Kang.
Lin is back in the director’s chair, having helmed the third, fourth, and fifth instalments in the franchise, and is once more directing from a script by Chris Morgan, who’s penned all the films in the series that Lin has directed.
Also hitting in May next year will be Iron Man 3, The Great Gatsby, Star Trek Into Darkness, Epic, and The Hangover Part III, so I wouldn’t be surprised if May 2013 is the highest-grossing month of the year.
Fast and Furious 6 will be hitting hard in the UK and US on 24th May, 2013, and that is a date that really cannot come fast enough. It’s going to be immense, and a whole lot of fun. For now, here’s the great new image of Diesel as Dom, which you can click through to enlarge.
