According to director Justin Lin, via his Twitter page, the sixth chapter in THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS saga has begun filming. Lin posted the following last night.

“It’s 2am & just got up for the 1st day of FF6. Always love the calm & silence of the night b4 going on set. Let’s go shoot a f@#kin’ movie!”

While the only movies in the franchise I have liked are the original and the recent FAST FIVE, the sixth film (FASTER THAN FIVE?) just jumped in my estimation by casting JOE TASLIM, star of THE RAID: REDEMPTION, as a villain in the movie.

Variety reports that Taslim will play Jah, “a cold-blooded killer who uses his martial arts and parkour skills to fight the pic’s protags.” That definitely works for me. This awesome cast now includes Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Luke Evans, Gina Carano and Michelle Rodriguez

FAST SIX (aka FAST TIMES AT DIESEL HIGH?) is slated to open on May 24th, 2013.

Bare with me

I guess you could say I'm a bit of a car freak. I missed the first and caught 10 minutes of the second and thought what a load of crap. But then a mate told me how awesome fast 5 was so I gave it a shot and like Anomaly7 said it was a guilty pleasure. I fuckin loved it. Then I went back and watched them all and are hanging for 6- 100. Lol

Joe's actually a Judo champion in Indonesia. I'm pretty sure we're going to see a Joe vs Gina fight at some point!

Cool. These have always been guilty pleasure films for me, and Fast Five was great. Also didn't know Gina Carano was in this. Are they still planning on shooting this and part 7 back to back? And will Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster be back?
