Watch: First 'Fast & Furious 6' Featurette Focuses on Familar Faces
How about that for some alliteration? After the kick-ass Super Bowl spot and extended trailer for Fast & Furious 6 arrived, even naysayers of the franchise like myself had to applaud the audacity and wild action of the sequel. In what has become an Avengers assembly of car thieves from the previous films, the fast-paced sequel promises some outrageous moments. Now a new featurette slows things down and vaguely talks about the return of Michelle Rodriguez as Letty. Franchise star Vin Diesel says this is like her origin story (though not a prequel), but the coolest thing is how Rodriguez found out about her resurrection.
Here's the new featurette for Justin Lin's Fast & Furious 6, originally from Yahoo:
Since Dom (Vin Diesel) and Brian’s (Paul Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have are on the lam around the world. Meanwhile, Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Luke Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). Now, with full pardons and the chance at returning home on the line, Dom and his crew team up with the right side of the law to stop these criminals at street level in London. Justin Lin directs Fast & Furious 6 written by Chris Morgan. Universal will release in theaters May 24th.
