Last week, we showed you some photos and videos from the set of Fast and Furious 6, and now more photos and videos have arrived online. Previously, we only saw some cars and a tank, but this time around we get a full-on crash (intentional, of course). It loses some of its majesty being shot from a spy-cam, but I’m sure director Justin Lin will cut it together to make it an exhilarating moment for fans of the franchise.
Hit the jump to check out images and video, although this could probably be considered a minor spoiler, so consider yourself warned. We’ve also included comments about the film from Ludacris, who is returning to play Tej Parker. The film 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.
Less than a week ago, we posted this photo of Dwayne Johnson and Gina Cararno posing like the badasses they are on the set of Fast and Furious 6. Not to be outdone, stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker posed for another image, along with director Justin Lin. All we really know so far is that production has started and the plot of the film appears to center around dueling heist teams.
The movie also stars Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Joe Taslim, and Luke Evans. The film is slated to open May 24, 2013. Hit the jump to check out the new image.
Dwayne Johnson loves tweeting information to his fans, like set photos from his movies or hinting that Osama Bin Laden is dead. Today, he has tweeted the first image from his upcoming film, Fast Six. The image doesn’t show anything major. It’s just Johnson and co-star Gina Carano (Haywire) standing around and being bad-asses. If you wanted to see a blend of friendliness and the ability to beat the life out of you, this is the picture for you.
Hit the jump to check out the full image. The movie also stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Joe Taslim, and Luke Evans. Not much is known about the film other than it involves dueling heist teams. Fast Six opens May 24, 2013.

Production is officially underway on director Justin Lin’s sixth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, currently referred to as Fast & Furious 6. Lin broke the news on his Twitter page last night:
“It’s 2am & just got up for the 1st day of FF6. Always love the calm & silence of the night b4 going on set. Let’s go shoot a f@#kin’ movie!”
Filming will take place in and around Europe, where the movie is set. The story reportedly revolves around dueling heist teams. Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Dwayne Johnson all return, joined by newcomers Gina Carano and Luke Evans. Hit the jump for more, including casting news concerning a villainous role.
TNT’s return to Dallas, premiering on June 13th, will have a whole new collection of secrets, schemes and betrayals on the steamy nighttime soap. This time, JR (Larry Hagman), Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) are joined by the next generation of Ewings, who take ambition and deception to a whole new level.
At the show’s press day, actress Jordana Brewster, who plays Elena Ramos, John Ross’ (Josh Henderson) girlfriend and Christopher’s (Jesse Metcalfe) former fiancée, spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about how she had been looking for something in television, what it’s like to work with the original cast members, her favorite fight scenes this season, what she enjoys most about playing Elena, and adjusting to having different directors for each episode. She also talked about looking forward to what’s in store for her character in Fast and Furious 6, and how she hopes she’ll be able to get in on some of the action. Check out what she had to say after the jump:
With the licensing expo set to begin next week, a friend of the site has sent over a number of new synopses and promo images from some highly anticipated upcoming films. Included in the batch is a new promo image for Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot Man of Steel, as well as a promo image for director Justin Lin’s Fast & Furious 6. Warner Bros. released the first logo for Man of Steel a few months ago, and this promo image puts that hardened “S” front and center. As for Fast & Furious 6, this is only some very early promo artwork that basically says “the super lucrative Fast & Furious franchise is continuing.”
Though plot details are under wraps for the next installment, we do know that much of the action in Fast & Furious 6 takes place in Europe, with Dwayne Johnson reprising his role from Fast Five alongside franchise regulars like Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster. Moreover, Luke Evans was recently confirmed as the film’s baddie. Hit the jump to check out the two promo images. Man of Steel opens on June 14th, 2013 while Fast & Furious 6 is slated for release on May 24th, 2013.
Last week, we learned that Luke Evans (The Raven) had been offered the villain role in Fast and Furious 6. Given that the actor has an increasingly busy schedule as of late (he’s currently filming The Hobbit), we weren’t sure at the time that he’d be able to take the role. Well, now Variety has confirmed that Evans is currently in negotiations to play the baddie in the sixth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise, opposite returning members Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, and Dwayne Johnson. Moreover, the casting confirmation comes with some exciting plot details concerning Fast and Furious 6. Hit the jump for more.
At this week’s press day for the upcoming return of the drama series Dallas, premiering on TNT on June 13th – and starring original cast members Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Grey, along with a whole new line-up of actors – Jordana Brewster took some time to speak with Collider about what drew her to television and this show and character, in particular.
While we’ll post what she had to say about being a part of Dallas closer to the show’s premiere, we did want to share what she had to say about her involvement in the Fast and Furious franchise. Although she hasn’t yet gotten to read the script for the next installment (tentatively called Fast and Furious 6) , she was able to speculate a bit about how Mia might deal with motherhood, possibly getting to shoot the film in the UK, her hopes that she’ll get to be more active, and that even though there is pressure for each film to be as good as the one before, she trusts the filmmakers because they don’t take the fans or their expectations for granted. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
Gina Carano gave a great physical performance in Steven Soderbergh‘s Haywire, and while she may not have the acting prowess of A-list leading ladies, the MMA brawler has them licked when it comes to fighting. Last week, we reported that Carano was in talks to join Fast and Furious 6, and she’s also set to star in the John Stockwell action flick In the Blood. In a recent interview, Carano provided brief updates on where she’s at with both pictures.
Hit the jump for Carano’s comments. Haywire hits DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, and you should definitely check it out if you missed it in theaters. Click here for my review.
Production is slated to begin on Fast and Furious 6 (that’s the working title for now) soon, and director Justin Lin looks to be adding a strong female presence for his Fast Five follow-up. We learned last week that MMA fighter/Haywire star Gina Carano has entered talks to join the car-enthusiast ensemble, and now The Daily Mail claims that Rihanna is set to take on a villainous role in the pic. It’s important to note that The Sun is a somewhat less-than-reputable source, so this casting news should be taken with a grain of salt for the time-being.
The artist stars in this summer’s Battleship, but we haven’t seen much of her acting ability in the trailers so it’s hard to judge this casting choice, should it turnout to be true. Remember Samantha Mumba in The Time Machine? Oh, you don’t? Dwayne Johnson told Steve that they’ll be filming Fast and Furious 6 in London and Berlin, so we can look forward to an international vibe for the upcoming actioner. The film is slated to open on May 24th, 2013.
How does a Gina Carano/Dwayne Johnson team-up sound? After kicking much ass earlier this year in Steven Soderbergh’s actioner Haywire, MMA athlete Gina Carano is now poised to join the next installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. Though plot details are under wraps, Carano will apparently star in Fast 6 as a member of Johnson’s team. As you’ll recall, “The Rock” played a toughened Diplomatic Security Service agent in director Justin Lin’s smash hit Fast Five. Hit the jump for more.
Apparently Jason Statham is able to turn down movie offers. The star of two Crank films and The Bank Job has apparently turned down an offer to star in the upcoming sixth entry in the Fast and Furious franchise. Director Justin Lin is returning to the director’s chair in the apparently globe-spanning Fast Six, but Twitch reports that Statham was unable to work out a deal with Universal to join the testosterone-fuel cast. Dwayne Johnson is reprising his role from the surprisingly great Fast Five, and Vin Diesel and Co. are expected to return as well.
Johnson recently revealed that Fast Six will not be shot concurrently with Fast Seven, but both films will be shot separately in the UK and Germany so we’re in for some international racing this time around. I loved the hell out of Fast Five, so I’m excited to see where Lin takes the series now. Production on Fast Six begins next month
Dwayne Johnson is quickly becoming the go-to guy when you want to reinvigorate a franchise. He was brought in on G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and recently Johnson’s charisma was on full-display in Justin Lin’s surprisingly fantastic Fast Five. Following the smashing success of the fifth entry in the Fast and Furious franchise, Universal quickly got to work plotting out a follow-up installment. Lin committed to coming back to the series, and we soon learned that the producers were mulling over the idea of shooting both Fast Six and Fast Seven back-to-back. It appears that’s not the case anymore, as Johnson recently spoke a bit about the upcoming sequels. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
After the smashing success of Justin Lin’s Fast Five, Universal got moving on not only a sixth film but also a seventh installment in the surprisingly long-legged franchise. While initially only one sequel was conceived, we learned in October that the studio was hoping to shoot a sixth and seventh film back-to-back. The two sequels would act as a “Part 1” and a “Part 2”, so presumably it’s one story split in half. Lin is back in the director’s chair for the films, and last we heard Chris Morgan was working on one giant script to link the two movies together. Star Vin Diesel recently opened up a bit about the projects, explaining how it became two sequels in the wake of Fast Five. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
