The Rock accelerates into the Fast and the Furious franchise

07.12.2010

Five times the tires, five times the beef, five times the furiosity. It's the fifth FAST AND THE FURIOUS movie, because you apparently demanded it.

The latest nitrous-powered testosterone injection, going by the handle FAST FIVE, not only brings back the original Paul Walker/Vin Diesel manwich but also 2 FAST's Tyrese Gibson.

And just to throw in a bit more sweaty muscle, Dwayne "Ex-The Rock" Johnson will add his own horsepower.

The previously rumored Johnson is now confirmed to grip the stick shift as a lawman chasing down the fugitives and their flashy vehicles. Perhaps Johnson had already built up momentum from his own action flick FASTER.

TOKYO DRIFT and FAST AND FURIOUS director Justin Lin is back for more vehicular obsession, this time in places like Brazil and Puerto Rico. Previous reports imply the movie will be (surprise) released in 3D some time in Summer 2011, with a sixth already being planned. With Jordana Brewster, let's hope. Vroom.

Extra Tidbit: Meanwhile, Paul Walker is still waiting/dreading the release of TAKERS.

I'll wait and see, but Dwayne Johnson is good news. The man needs to get back into action films. I enjoyed Fast and Furious, and the series as a whole, while having misses, has been mostly fun. So, I could see this being a good summer popcorn flick.

This is great news. With this casting this easily has the potential to be the best movie out of the franchise. I hope there is a showdown between Diesel and The Rock. That would be awesome to see these two guys go up against one another.

FINALLY! THE ROCK HAS....

Come back to action movies, where he belongs. Love him or hate him, he makes a great action star, and thats one thing hollywood is lacking these days, viable, bankable, action stars. We need to action movies on the big screen. hopefully The Expendables shows hollywood that its possible.

I love The Rock...about time he gets back into his action genre. Ill love this movie if Vin and The Rock double team Paul Walker and leave his dead ass, storyline of course, on the side of the road.

I've never understood America's peculiar love affair with this guy. Well, hopefully this flick will kill off what remains of his "acting" career.

This would all seem more interesting if the 3rd was never made. But I can dig this. I liked the first one, and the 4th one. So this one should be cool.

I must admit...

I love these movies. I could do without the second one, but oh well. I kinda hope they bring Lucas Black in too since the fourth movie takes place before the 3rd.

Won't pay to see it in theaters, but this could definitely be fun to watch as a rental or on HBO.

Not bad.

Gotta say, the franchise is a guilty pleasure, has always been a solid flick to pop in and watch with the buds, either at the theatre or on DVD.

I think the fourth was actually the best one yet.

Tyrese returning? The Rock coming in? Two more films? 3D? Ehhh... I'm down.

seems strange that a pretty big star would join an average franchise in the 5th movie... but hey, this gets me excited for it. maybe i'll even give in and watch the 3rd and 4th movies.

If there is a fist fight between The Rock and Vin Diesel, all will be right with the world

I think I've liked every one of the F&F series except the 1st. Just wondering if they're going to have a DK (Lucus Black) cameo and have the group walk together like Justice League.

As cheesy and bad as this are, they are fun, and the last two (the one Lin's did) were actually quite excellent, so I am all for this!

I enjoy the hell out of these movies. Even Tokyo Drift was a really fun time at the theaters. With Dwayne Johnson coming in, that is just cherry, dude kicks ass. And they have to bring back Jordana Brewster, because (in my top 10) she is the 3rd hottest female alive!

The first was a great surprise.. the second had some salvageable moments and the third was dog shit. The fourth one had some promise but ultimately failed due to the CGI car chase in a tiny tunnel.. I mean really.. what the fuck was that? The second they went from actual car chases to that ridiculous scene I lost all faith in the franchise.

Good luck with the fifth.

I am a fan of Dwayne Johnson and the series. I hope that it continues to work the magic the rekindled in Fast and Furious. Vin Diesel needs to do more movies.

He is my man crush.

Right there the only reason i'd see this movie. Didn't watch any of the others. How they keep getting made is beyond me.

This man is a talented actor though and i mean that legitimately. Funny man, great action start material too. I actually cannot believe how much i enjoyed the tooth fairy... i mean Steve Merchant and The Rock... i never would have even thought about trying them out as a comedic pair but they bounced off each other so well. I was impressed anyways....what were we talking

I think I've seen maybe 45 minutes of the first Fast and Furious, that's it. Guess I just never understood this franchise.
