FAST & FURIOUS 6
Crossing the Pond: The Series Heads East
After a decade of dazzling audiences with storylines
playing against backdrops in Los Angeles, Miami,
Tokyo, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and most
notably, the gritty favelas of Rio de Janeiro, the Fast &
Furious series roars across the Atlantic to Europe for
its next chapter.
Lin, Moritz, Diesel
and Townsend assembled
a dream team of behind-
the-scenes talent to help
them fully realize a script
that even in its earliest of
drafts had readers awed.
Says Townsend of the
effort: "We've always
said that it takes an army
to make these movies. I
can't begin to properly
thank the hundreds of crew members who took Justin's
vision and turned it into what I can honestly say is
the most astonishing series of action pieces I've seen
committed to film."
Franchise alumni DP Stephen Windon, costume
designer Sanja Milkovic Hays, visual effects supervisor KELVIN McILWAIN (Fast Five), first assistant
director VINCENT LASCOUMES (Fast Five), second
unit director Spiro Razatos and second unit director
of photography IGOR MEGLIC (Fast Five) were
looking forward to continuing the work they began
with Lin several years ago.
As with previous Lin-directed Fast & Furious films,
massive set pieces dominate the action. For audiences
around the world, expectations are quite high with the
re lease of each subsequent chapter. Like the franchise
itself, there is nothing subtle or under-the-radar when it
comes to the logistics of filming one of these productions.
With this chapter, two film units traversed the United
Kingdom and the Canary Islands with hundreds of
people, hundreds of cars and tons of equipment.
