Universal has just announced the next Fast and the Furious movie will hit theaters May 24, 2013 (which is Memorial Day weekend). You might remember that Universal showed a Fast and Furious 6 promo poster at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas last week, so the 2013 release date was already known. What we didn’t know was the date.
According to the studio, Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel return to produce, and director Justin Lin is again helming the franchise. According to Variety, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson will all be back and we already knew Fast Five screenwriter Chris Morgan was writing the 6th installment. With Fast Five set to cross $600 million at the worldwide box office in the next few days, it’s no surprise Universal wants the next installment in less than two years. Since Fast Five did a great job at reinventing the franchise, I’m ready for the next installment. What about you?
