Fast & Furious 6 is one of our most anticipated 2013 releases, building on the success of the previous installment in Paul Walker and Vin Diesel’s peddle-to-the-metal franchise, Fast Five (which incorporates Dwayne Johnson into the high-octane proceedings). Justin Lin’s back directing for the fourth time in the series, with new onscreen additions including Luke Evans (Immortals) and Gina Carano (Haywire); not to mention, the return of Michelle Rodriguez as Dom’s presumed-dead sweetheart Letty.
The first footage from F&F 6 premieres this weekend, during the Super Bowl XLVII. However, in the meantime, we can offer the movie’s official synopsis, based on the script penned by Chris Morgan (who’s been writing for the franchise since Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, which is also when Lin joined the party).
Judging by the official synopsis, Fast & Furious 6 is traversing the familiar “one last job” heist-thriller genre territory, which is in keeping with Universal chairman Adam Fogelson’s past comments about wanting to continue the series’ evolution – moving from just presenting car-racing thrills to emulating classic European heist adventures (The French Connection, Italian Job, etc.) – and building on the Ocean’s Eleven-style plot and character mechanics integrated into Fast Five.
