'Haywire' Action Star Gina Carano in Talks to Join 'Fast and Furious 6'
Though the plot is being kept under wraps for the sixth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel reprising their lead roles, and Dwayne Johnson in hot pursuit after the events of Fast Five, I'm betting there will be car chases, explosions, and mediocre writing and acting. One other guarantee we can now make comes from a report by Heat Vision that reveals MMA fighter Gina Carano, fresh off her big screen debut in Haywire earlier this year, has landed a role in the film. Though details on her character are also under wraps, we at least know that she'll be a member of Johnson's team.
Justin Lin is back in the director's chair for the sequel, and franchise scribe Chris Morgan, who wrote the last three films in what has become a billion dollar franchise. Frankly, I think the series has run its course despite the story in the last film essentially allowing for a middle of the franchise reboot with familiar characters sticking around for more adrenaline fueled action. I know there's an audience that enjoys the mindless entertainment, but I just want something different. Of course, Carano is easy on the eyes and definitely kicks some ass, so that might do the trick. We'll find out next summer on May 24th, 2013.
