We know that many fans were worried about the film losing some of its car racing element for more a heist feel for the film, but its quite clear that Fast Six will be featuring a vast variety of cars, whether its exotic, tuner or muscle cars, they all will be featured!

 Ludacris, who is returning to play Tej Parker, gave a little update on the film which also stars Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Joe Taslim, and Luke Evans.

 Fast and Furious 6 opens May 24, 2013.

Details on the plot have been scarce, but Ludacris confirms to CNN that the story revolves around dueling heist crews:

“It kind of takes up from where we left off [in 'Fast and Furious 5'], and there is a whole new batch of surprises,” he said. “The crew that is in ‘Fast 5,’ we are going up against a rival crew, so it’s almost like Justice League up against the Legion of Doom.”

Check out these Awesome videos showing us a little bit from the films set:



Chris Evans has said that the filming for the sequel to Captain America will begin filming in March and now we know where.

The sequel, titled Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is set to be released on April 4, 2014 and will be going back to Cleveland, Ohio where much of The Avengers was filmed.

Here's the press release from the Greater Cleveland Film Commission:

"The Greater Cleveland Film Commission today announced that Marvel Studios will film portions of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier in Cleveland, Ohio. Set for release by The Walt Disney Studios in 2014, the movie is a sequel to the 2011 hit Captain America: The First Avenger starring Chris Evans. Marvel Studios will film stage work for the production in the studio’s home state of California.

Filming for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled to begin next year. This film project follows on the heels of Marvel Studio’s 2012 blockbuster Marvel’s The Avengers, which filmed i

“Marvel is pleased to return to Ohio, this time with our Captain America: The Winter Soldier production. The location, talent and people of Ohio are sure to benefit our film, and we look forward to beginning production,” said Louis D’Esposito, Co-President, Marvel Studios.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will pick up where Marvel’s The Avengers leaves off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. The film will be directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, Cleveland natives whose credits include the movie Welcome to Collinwood, the Fox TV series Arrested Development, and the NBC TV series Community.

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission was in talks with Marvel Studios for weeks, sharing information about Ohio’s physical assets and helping them learn about the benefits of filming in Ohio — including the recently expanded Ohio Motion Picture Tax Incentive.

In June, the State of Ohio expanded the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Incentive, a critical tool for strengthening Ohio’s growing film industry and creating jobs for Ohioans. The tax incentive provides for a refundable credit against the corporation franchise or income tax for motion pictures produced in Ohio.

“We’re thrilled that Marvel Studios is bringing another major motion picture project to Cleveland, and we’re committed to showing them the very best our region has to offer,”  said Ivan Schwarz, executive director of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission. “We proved with the filming of Marvel’s The Avengers that Cleveland has the talent, architecture and amazing locations that will provide filmmakers everything they need to ensure a successful filming experience, and the economic impact of this new project can’t be denied. Filming will create a number of jobs for Ohioans and will give our region another chance to demonstrate how skilled, professional and dedicated our workforce truly is. We especially appreciate Governor Kasich and the Ohio Film Office for their support and timely approval of these exciting opportunities.”

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission is committed to building a year-round, sustainable statewide film industry through job creation, workforce development, and attracting media production.

Frank G. Jackson, Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, stated, “We are thrilled to host Marvel and the filming of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 2013. We have worked diligently with the Greater Cleveland Film Commission to make our city an attractive location for films of all sizes. Marvel’s return to Cleveland shows we can provide a film-friendly atmosphere that will ultimately lead to a permanent presence of the film industry in Northeast Ohio.”

About 1,143 full-time equivalent Ohio jobs and $35.5 million in household income are estimated to have been credited to the 27 projects that took advantage of the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit since its 2009 inception, and the tax incentive returns $1.20 into the Ohio economy for every $1 invested by the incentive, according to a Cleveland State University study released earlier this year.

“We are thrilled that Cuyahoga County is being seen as a destination for filmmakers,” said Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald. “The resources that we have to offer, including our skilled workforce, makes our region a natural fit for the film industry. Projects like this means jobs and economic development for Cuyahoga County.”"

Recently we got news that a fifth Indiana Jones film might still be in the works, but now it looks like another Spielberg franchise will be getting another film.

Producer Kathleen Kennedy recently provided an update on the project, explaining that they're still at the script-writing stage, working out what approach the next film should potentially take.

Speaking with TotalFilm this is what she had to say:

"Writing, writing, writing," she said, when asked what stage the project is currently at. "It's really hard to keep these things going when there's an expectation and a desire by the public and the audience to keep certain franchises going."

"As filmmakers, we often sit there going, 'Okay. We have to answer the question, 'Why do another one?'' If you can't answer that question, you shouldn't be doing it. It's tough. We're trying to come up with a story that makes sense and isn't going to disappoint people and is, hopefully, going to get people excited and reinvigorate the franchise. We've got to start with a script and the story."

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes scribes Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver were brought in to help with work on the script.

TRUST YOUR EYES (Director Boards)


Todd Phillips looks set to take a decidedly non-comedic turn as Variety reports that the director has lined up an adaptation of the just-released Linwood Barclay thriller novel, Trust Your Eyes.

Todd Phillips
The official description of the book reads as follows:

“A schizophrenic man spends his days and nights on a website called Whirl360, believing he’s employed by the CIA to store the details of every town and city in the world in his head. Then one day, he sees something that shouldn’t be there: a woman being murdered behind a window on a New York street. Suddenly Thomas has more to deal with than just his delusions, as he gets drawn into a deadly conspiracy.”

Phillips, best known for comedies like Old School and Due Date, is currently at work on the conclusion to his blockbuster trilogy with The Hangover Part III.
