Universal Pictures has released the first official synopsis for the Justin Lin-directed film Fast and Furious 6! I'm looking forward to the movie, but I'm actually surprised by how many other people are excited for it as well. I guess Fast Five really did the trick in breathing new life into the dying franchise. Well, here's the official synopsis for the highly anticipated film!
Since Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian’s (Paul Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.
Meanwhile, Hobbs (Dwyane Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Luke Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez).
The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
I absolutely love that Dom and Hobbs will be teaming up in this movie! I had no idea that would be the case, so that was a nice surprise. The movie also stars Gina Carano, Joe Taslim, Gal Gadot, Tyrese, Jordana Brewster, and Ludacris. It's set to hit theaters on May 24th, 2013. Stay tuned because the first trailer for the film will air during the Super Bowl on Sunday!
