FAST & FURIOUS 6

About the Production
Twelve years ago, a small film called The Fast and the Furious, about the underground street-racing sub- culture in East Los Angeles, became a sleeper summer hit and brought in $207 million at the global box office. Two years ago, Fast Five racked up the biggest opening in Universal Pictures' history with $86 million on its way to $209 million domestically and more than $625 million worldwide. It is almost unheard of that the fifth film redefines the creative and financial parameters of a franchise, but since the third entry of this series, the box-office take has doubled -- and then almost doubled again.

Now that the series has accumulated an astonishing $1.5 billion over five movies, the anticipation for summer 2013's entry has reached a fever pitch among audiences. On social media platforms, the fan following for the films and cast has grown into the biggest of any active franchise.

Although the journey has been extraordinary, even as the scale of the films has grown more ambitious, they haven't lost sight of their core characters. The stunts have gotten bigger and locations more exotic, but the key to continued success has been giving audiences a reason to connect and to care. Because the Fast & Furious movies retain and expand upon everything that they love about the series, fans have remained loyal as the franchise has evolved from a street-racing film into a global action thrill ride.

Now, VIN DIESEL, PAUL WALKER and DWAYNE JOHNSON lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster saga built on speed races to its next installment in Fast & Furious 6. Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ, JORDANA BREWSTER, TYRESE GIBSON, CHRIS "LUDACRIS" BRIDGES, SUNG KANG, JOHN ORTIZ, GAL GADOT and ELSA PATAKY are joined by badass series newcomers LUKE EVANS and GINA CARANO.

Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian's (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 being forced to live forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.

Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (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.

Returning to this installment is a talented production crew of series' architects led by director/executive pro- ducer JUSTIN LIN, who has directed the last three films in the Fast & Furious franchise that ex- ploded in global popularity, and producers NEAL H. MORITZ (Fast & Furious series, I Am Legend, R.I.P.D.), Vin Diesel (Fast Five, Fast & Furious, Los Bandoleros) and CLAYTON TOWNSEND (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Bridesmaids, Any Given Sunday). CHRIS MORGAN (Fast Five, Fast & Furious, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Wanted, upcoming 47 Ronin) is an executive producer and writes the screenplay based on characters created by GARY SCOTT THOMPSON (The Fast and the Furious).

Also coming back to the franchise is an ac complished behind-the-scenes team, including cine ma tographer STEPHEN F. WINDON (Fast Five, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift), editors CHRISTIAN WAGNER (Fast Five, Fast & Furious, Mission: Impossible II) and KELLY MATSUMOTO (Fast Five, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift), costume designer SANJA MILKOVIC HAYS (Fast & Furious series, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor) and executive producers AMANDA LEWIS (Fast Five, Fast & Furious) and SAMANTHA VINCENT (Fast Five, Fast & Furious). Production designer JAN ROELFS (47 Ronin, Get Him to the Greek) and composer LUCAS VIDAL (The Raven, The Cold Light of Day) join Lin's crew for Fast & Furious 6.
