Fast and Furious Six and RIPD already have release dates

Jun. 25, 2011by:

The engines haven't cooled yet on FAST FIVE, and Universal was preparing a sequel before Vin Diesel and crew even peeled into theaters at the end of April. Now the studio has picked a prime parking space for FAST SIX (or whatever it will be called) -- May 24, 2013.

No word yet on what exactly the sexquel (or whatever you want to call the sixth in a series) will entail, but all the principals and their heavy feet should be back for more excessive velocity as the franchise reportedly heads into more of a heist formula. FAST THREE through FIVE writer Chris Morgan is already working on a script.

Universal had tentatively scheduled the Ron Howard adaptation of Stephen King's THE DARK TOWER for May 17, 2013, but that's starting to seem unlikely to happen considering its budget concerns and now the placement of the next FAST entry.

Meanwhile, Universal has also selected a date of June 28, 2013 for their supernatural action-comedy R.I.P.D., which stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges. RED director Robert Schwentke and producer Neal Moritz (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUSes) are bringing the Dark Horse comic to life.

The comic synopsis: "Welcome to the Rest In Peace Department -- the devoted, yet dead, officers of divine law enforcement "patrolling the deadbeat...reporting to one boss." Yep -- THAT boss. Nick Cruz was murdered by an unknown assailent, at the height of his personal and professional life. Now he's traded a hundred years of service to the R.I.P.D. in exchange for a shot at finding who killed him. Unfortunately his search will take him to Hell and back -- literally!"

Extra Tidbit: Right now, the only other big movies already scheduled for May/June 2013 are IRON MAN 3 and MONSTERS UNIVERSITY.

Bring on Fast 6!!!

Fast Five was some of the most fun I had at the theater this year. The Rock added some freshness to the franchise. Looking forward to seeing what happens w/ Hobbs on the guys' tail.

Agreed. It's rare when a series gets progressively better as it goes along.

Well, the Fast movie titles have been getting shorter and shorter. First "The Fast and the Furious", then "2 Fast, 2 Furious", then "Fast and Furious", then Fast Five". So next I'm guessing will be just be called "F6".

Doing voices in animated movies isn't exactly time consuming.

Im pretty sure the voice acting is done for the cavemen one. And I'm not sure if the snail one is a done deal contractually. Just because Deadpool isnt starting tomorrow doesnt mean it isnt happening.
