Production is still underway in London on director Justin Lin’s Fast and Furious 6, and though we’ve seen plenty of images and video from the set already, star Tyrese Gibson has decided to share a bit more with fans. The actor has been keeping tabs on the production via his Twitter account, and today we’ve got an image of Tyrese, Ludacris, and Mr. Dwayne Johnson on a vehicle preparing to head out into what I can only assume is some intense action.
He also shared a video from the set (for some reason shot vertically on his phone), and you can check both out after the jump. The film also stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Joe Taslim, and Luke Evans. Fast and Furious 6 opens May 24, 2013.
Shortly before Transformers: Dark of the Moon was released, I got the chance to speak with Tyrese Gibson on the phone. Since I hadn’t yet seen the film, I couldn’t ask specific questions about the plot or his character. However, since I was able to visit the editing room earlier this year, where I also saw about 15 minutes of the film before its release, I knew enough about the story and the insane Chicago action sequence that we had plenty to discuss. In addition, Gibson talked about Fast Five and Fast Six, filming Transformers in 3D, if he has the desire to direct, how he ended up writing a bestselling book (How to Get Out of Your Own Way), his new album Open Invitation, Twitter, and a lot more. Hit the jump for the audio and transcript.
When I woke up yesterday morning, I knew very little about the 3rd Transformers movie besides the title (Transformers: Dark of the Moon). However, due to spending 3 hours with Michael Bay and the fact that he was willing to show us the teaser trailer, a montage of footage from the entire movie, and then he took the visiting journalists into his private editing suite and showed a huge chuck of footage from the final 3rd of the film, I know a tremendous amount about what’s almost certainly his last Transformers film. And if it really is his last one, I think he’s going to go out with a huge home-run.
So here’s what you need to know: while Bay asked us not to reveal any of the spoilers we learned while visiting his editing room, he talked to us for over two hours over lunch and he discussed making the movie, why he used 3D cameras, what made him cast Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as Megan Fox’s replacement, editing in 3D, how much was shot in 3D and how much will be post converted, and so much more.
