If you happened to catch Fast Five in the theaters earlier this year and stayed in the theater until after credits you probably saw a nice little setup for the six installment in the go-fast, underground racing series. During the scene, Eve Mendez walks up to Dwayne Johnson and shows him a file containing a picture of Letty (aka Michelle Rodriguez), Dom’s (Vin Diesel) girlfriend, who apparently passed away earlier in part 4. The leads us to believe that Letty never passed away and that part six of the Fast and Furious series will be about her return to the team.
NBC Universal has just confirmed that the sixth film in The Fast and Furious Series will hit theaters on May 24, 2013.
Surprisingly, the film won’t open in April – both Fast & Furious and Fast Five opened to a record-breaking day in April. By moving the release date to late May, we guess Universal is betting that the series is strong enough to kick off the summer movie season.
Also Universal has promised that the franchise will continue to evolve from its car roots into a “heist action” series.
