It looks like 2012 Hollywood Walk of Fame inductee Vin Diesel will have another Fast and Furious installment to add to his increasingly diverse resume.
Universal is prepared to release Fast and Furious 6 or Fast Six on Memorial Day weekend, May 24, 2013.
No other details are available, but Justin Lin is expected to return to direct. Universal also scheduled the supernatural comic book adaptation R.I.P.D., featuring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, for June 28th, 2013, just a few weeks later.
Universal chairman Adam Fogelson offered the following bit to Deadline in a recent interview:
“The question putting ‘Fast Five’ and ‘Fast Six’ together for us was: Can we take it out of being a pure car culture movie and into being a true action franchise in the spirit of those great heist films made 10 or 15 years ago?”
