First Look: Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson in 'Fast Five' Sequel
While I've found the Fast & the Furious franchise losing a lot of speed and fury over the years, apparently fans and Universal still think there's enough gas in the tank for another sequel (maybe even two). That train of thought brings us to Fast Five, another fast-paced sequel from director Justin Lin with franchise stars Paul Walker and Vin Diesel on the run from a legendary law man played by Dwayne Johnson. Now we have our first look at the tough guy face-off with the first image from the sequel where Diesel and Johnson don't seem to be very fond of one another. Also, be sure to check back tomorrow around noon for a trailer.
Here's the first image from Fast Five courtesy of USA Today:
Since Brian (Walker) and Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster) broke Dominic (Diesel) out of custody, find themselves backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro and must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) is also on their tail and he never fails. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them, but soon learn they can't separate the good guys from the bad. Fast Five is slated to race into theaters on April 29th, 2011. Sound good?
