Today, we’ve got two behind-the-scenes featurettes for the upcoming Fast & Furious 6. To say that the production teams are taking their action sequences lightly would be a gross understatement. As many of the filmmakers and cast involve describe, it was an all-hands-on-deck collaboration to bring something new to the table.
The first featurette focuses on the mandate of the sixth installment: how do you top the previous film? As Tyrese Gibson explains, focusing on making the action scenes count is what will win audiences over. In the second featurette, the cast and crew describe their accounts of the fight scene between the film’s two toughest ladies, Gina Carano & Michelle Rodriguez. Director Justin Lin hopes that this brutal fist fight will be the pinnacle to 6, as was the fight between Dom & Hobbs in 5.
Fast & Furious 6 opens May 24th.
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 living 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.
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6. Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.
Building on the worldwide blockbuster success of Fast Five and taking the action, stunts and narrative to even greater heights, Fast & Furious 6 sees director Justin Lin back behind the camera for the fourth time. He is supported by longtime producers Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel, who welcome producer Clayton Townsend back to the series.
