"Fast and Furious 6" Summer 2013

"Fast and Furious 6" Summer 2013

By Garrett Godwin

The Fast and the Furious series has been given another green light for a sixth installment set for release in Memorial Day 2013. 

Since the summer of 2001, it has been a popular summer film franchise that has launched the careers of Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, and Michelle Rodriguez with the original, 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003), Fast & Furious (2009), and Fast Five, which has taken in almost $600 million dollars worldwide and is nominated with five of this year`s Teen Choice Awards, including "Choice Movie - Action".

Like Fast Five, Fast and Furious 6 will move from its street racing roots to a new series of heist movies.  In other words, it is Ocean`s 11 with cars, yet there is no official word on who will be returning, but it has been reported that Diesel and Neal H. Moritz are set to produce with Chris Morgan penning the script, and Justin Lin back in the director`s seat.
