Fast and Furious 5 hauling ass to Brazil

A few more details are emerging about FAST FIVE, which is the as-absurd-as-expected title for the fifth FAST AND FURIOUS movie. After word that director Justin Lin and stars Diesel and Walker would be back, the film finally has a location, and it's leaving Cali and heading south of the border. Way, way south of the border, according to the Diesel’s Facebook.

“Had a meeting with Justin Lin today regarding the Fast saga… some daring but fascinating thoughts in terms of action set pieces… and relationships, old and new. The team is on their way to Brazil this evening, to scout, and to see what selection of cars there are. P.s. Will be talking to DT next week, maybe he can let me show some concept art of Riddick… Peace.”

Oooh, AND Riddick concept art eh? Anyway, the fifth film is heading to Brazil where Diesel and Walker will be “fugitives being pursued by legendary lawmen.”

I’m one of a very small, die-hard contingent of F&F fans out there. I understand that the series is uniquely terrible, but it’s usually terrible in an awesome way, and the original FAST AND THE FURIOUS is without a doubt one of the most quotable movies ever made. I’m also a big fan of TOKYO DRIFT, but I thought the latest film took itself way too seriously. Hopefully Brazil will make everyone loosen up again.

Extra Tidbit: Favorite quote from the series? I’ll start. “One of the things that we knows is, it’s not how you STAND by your car, it’s how you RACE your car!” – Ja Rule.
