- FAST AND FURIOUS 6 GETS A RELEASE DATE
Universal Pictures has snagged a release date for the yet-untitled sixth installment of the "Fast and Furious" franchise, temporarily titled Fast and Furious 6, and according to Deadline, they'll be releasing the movie on May 24, 2013.
Produced by Neal Moritz, the franchise has grossed over $1.5 billion worldwide with the recent Fast Five having grossed nearly $600 million globally on its won.
There's no confirmation that director Justin Lin will be returning for his fourth movie in a row, although he's talked about completing the trilogy that began with 2009's Fast and Furious. There isn't any word on how much of the ensemble cast from Fast Five will be returning, but considering that they've established a new heist thriller format, one would expect at least Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson, who joined the franchise with the last film, playing a special forces agent sent to stop the street racing criminals.
We pretty sure we will see the entire cast reprise their roles, but we thinking now that this could finally bring the curtain down on this franchise.
