The film stars Vin DieselPaul WalkerDwayne JohnsonJordana BrewsterTyrese Gibson,Michelle RodriguezSung KangChris BridgesLuke EvansGina Carano, and John OrtizFast & Furious 6 follows a professional criminal gang led by Dominic Toretto (Diesel) who have retired following their successful heist in Fast Five (2011), but remain wanted fugitives. U.S. Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) offers to clear the group’s criminal records and allow them to return home in exchange for helping him to take down a skilled mercenary organization led by Owen Shaw (Evans) and his second in command, Dominic’s presumed-dead lover Letty Ortiz (Rodriguez).

Fast & Furious 6 was in development by February 2010 as the first film in the series to move away from the underground car-racing theme of the series’ previous films which was considered to have placed a barrier on audience numbers. Pre-production had begun by April 2011, and principal photography began in London, England in July 2012. Filming locations also included the Canary Islands, Glasgow, and Los Angeles. The film is scheduled for release on May 24, 2013.

Premise

 

 

After the events of Fast Five, professional criminal Dominic Toretto and his crew of international thieves and drivers are wealthy, but their criminal records prevent them from returning to their home countries. Following his attempts to apprehend them, Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) agent Luke Hobbs is forced to offer the crew a deal; he will give them all full pardons for their crimes if they will help him take down a lethally skilled mercenary organization led by a former British special forces officer turned criminal mastermind Owen Shaw and his ruthless second-in-command, Dominic’s thought-dead lover, Letty Ortiz.[4]

 

 

Development

 

 

In February 2010, Diesel confirmed that production of Fast Five was commencing and also announced that a sixth installment was being planned.[15] In January 2011, producer Neal H. Moritz said more:[16]

In Vin and my mind we already know what the sixth movie is, we’ve already been talking about it. Vin and I have had numerous conversations about what that might be. And we’re starting to get serious about it right now. We just finished [Fast Five] like 4 or 5 weeks ago and we just needed a break, and now we’re gonna start focusing on that.

In April 2011 it was confirmed that Chris Morgan had already begun work on a script for a potential sixth film at the behest of Universal Studios.[5] It was also confirmed that Universal intended to transform the series from street-racing action into a series of heist films with car chases in the vein of The Italian Job (1969) and The French Connection (1971), with Fast Five as the transitional movie.[5] Universal chairman Adam Fogelson said:[5]

The question putting Fast Five and Fast Six together for us was: Can we take it out of being a pure car culture movie and into being a true action franchise in the spirit of those great heist films made 10 or 15 years ago?

Fogelson said that the racing aspect had put a “ceiling” on the number of people willing to see films in the series, and that, by turning it into a series where car driving ability is just one aspect of the film, he hoped to increase the series’ audience.[5] On Johnson’s character, Fogelson added “[Johnson] also wants to appear in and be integral to the action in Fast Six.”[5]

 

On June 24, 2011, Universal Pictures announced that the anticipated sequel is scheduled for release on May 24, 2013.[17] Moritz and Diesel are to return as producers and Lin returns to direct.[17]In an interview with Box Office, Lin revealed that he had, after discussions with Diesel, storyboarded, previsualized and edited a twelve-minute finale for Fast Six before filming was completed onFast Five. Lin said he shot the footage as he was unsure at the time if there would be a sequel or if he would be able to direct it, but he wanted to have input on how any sequel would end.[18] On October 21, 2011, the Los Angeles Times reported that Universal was considering filming two sequels—Fast Six and Fast Sevenback to back with a single story running through both films; both written by Morgan and directed by Lin.[19] On December 20, 2011, Diesel confirmed that Fast Six would be split into two parts, with writing for the two films occurring simultaneously. On the decision, Diesel said:[20]

We have to pay off this story, we have to service all of these character relationships, and when we started mapping all that out it just went beyond 110 pages…The studio said, ‘You can’t fit all that story in one damn movie!’[20]

On April 23, 2012, it was announced that mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano was in negotiations to play a member of Hobbs’ team.[21] On May 1, 2012, Michelle Rodriguez was confirmed to be reprising her role as Letty Ortiz,[6] and it was announced that Welsh actor Luke Evans had been offered a role as a villain.[9] Evans was confirmed to join the cast on May 9, 2012, portraying the leader of a heist gang competing with Diesel’s crew over the same heist job.[22] On July 27, 2012, Joe Taslim was confirmed to star as the villain Jah.[1] On February 15, 2012, Johnson confirmed that Fast Six would begin filming in May 2012, with some of the production to take place in the United Kingdom and Germany. Johnson stated that the two intended sequels would no longer be filmed simultaneously because of weather issues in filming locations, and that production on Fast Seven would only begin after the completion of Fast Six.[23] However, filming did not officially begin until July 30, 2012.[24] In February 2013, it was confirmed that the film would be titled Fast & Furious 6.[25]

Principal photography

 

 

Filming began on July 30, 2012, in London, England,[24][26][27] and Shepperton Studios in Surrey, part of the Pinewood Studios group.[28] While Fast & Furious 6 became only the third production to be allowed to film in Piccadilly Circus (a scene involving Diesel and Rodriguez drag racing), Lin was unable to obtain permission to shoot an elaborate action sequence there involving an exploding oil tanker, and so a replica of the landmark was built at Shepperton.[29][30] The production were given only 2 minutes every hour to shut down the area for filming.[31] The London shoot including filming on Lambeth Bridge.[32] On October 11, 2012, Walker suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury during a stunt, requiring the production to film around his scenes until he recovered.[33] A scene involving a plane crash began filming at RAF BovingdonHertfordshire on October 30, 2012 and was scheduled to conclude on November 9.[34] Filming for a car chase scene took place on Dale Street in Liverpool City Centre, and the Queensway Tunnel in the nearby town of Birkenhead over four days in November 2012.[35][36][31] Two days of filming were spent at HM Treasury‘s Government Offices Great George Street, which served as a nightclub.[37]

 

Shooting also occurred on Spain’s Canary Islands including the island of Tenerife. Filming had been intended to take place in Marseille, France, but was relocated to the islands to take advantage of a larger tax rebate (38%) that was estimated to lower filming costs by $20 million.[38]

 

Stunt and car chase scenes began filming on location in Glasgow, Scotland on August 29, 2012, and were scheduled to conclude on September 16, 2012. The shoot took place entirely at night and involved approximately 250 crew, but none of the central cast. Sets were built on site for the scenes including a large car showroom.[39][40] Filming was scheduled to take place at the former Royal Air Force base RAF Bentwaters in late August 2012 until early September 2012.[41] Filming also took place in Echo Park, Los Angeles beginning on December 1, 2012. The shoot returned the series to the filming location of the original The Fast and the Furious, and required the garage setting of that film to be rebuilt by carpenters.[42] By December 17, 2012, it was reported that filming had concluded.[43] Post-production was heavily condensed; by March 2013, Lin was attempting to complete approximately 18 months worth of post-production in a 12 week period. Lin was aided by five film editors, specialist teams focused on visual effects and color timing, and sound mixers that required two movie-theater-sized stages alone.[30]

Stunts

 

 

The scene featuring Diesel smashing his car through the nose of a Soviet-era cargo aircraft during takeoff was conceived by Lin while producing Fast & Furious in 2009. At the time, the stunt was too expensive to film and did not fit into that film’s story, but Lin commissioned digital pre-visualization artists to develop a mock-up of the idea. He attempted to revive the concept for Fast Five but the technology available proved insufficient and it still did not organically fit into the story.[30] A scene involving Evans’ character commandeering a tank was originally intended to use CGI to portray the vehicle crushing cars along a Spanish highway, but the final scene used practical effects as the tank really runs over approximately 250 cars.[30] For Owen Shaw’s Flip Car, Lin tasked the film’s vehicle designer with developing a car capable of driving head first into moving vehicles and flipping them into the air. McCarthy and his team designed a fully functional, low to the ground, formula one style car with a ramp on its front that allowed it to catapult other cars into the air while keeping the Flip Car driver safe.[44][45]

Marketing

 

 

The film’s first trailer was released during the 2013 Super Bowl on February 3. Among the six film trailers that launched at the event, Fast & Furious 6 generated widespread attention on social media, more than the other films (including Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness) combined according to data collection agency Fizziology. The extended version of the trailer had been viewed over 16 million times by February 17. The trailers success was partially attributed to the film’s stars promoting the trailer on their personal social networks. The The Fast and the Furious series marketing attempted to cultivate an online fan base which was also considered to have helped promote the film; the filmmakers responded to fan interaction, conducted an online poll to decide the title of Fast & Furious 6, brought back the character of Letty Ortiz based on fan feedback and encouraged fans to document the film’s production with unofficial photos. Universal marketing co-president Michael Moses said: “We’re trying to remove the studio filter as much as possible, which is a little scary because you’re ceding control… But it makes for more authentic and organic interaction with fans.”[46][47] The Super Bowl trailer, titled “Breathe”, won two Golden Trailer Awards for Best Action TV Spot and Best Summer Blockbuster 2013 TV Spot, and the marketing campaign received a further three nominations: Summer 2013 Blockbuster Trailer and Best Sound Editing for the “Trailer” trailer, and Best Teaser Poster.[48] A 15-piece clothing line was also produced in partnership with Guess, including T-shirts, jackets, caps and watches.[49]

 

 

Continuing their partnership from Fast Five, the Facebook game Car Town by Cie Games and the theater chain Regal Entertainment Group (REG) collaborated with Universal in a cross-media marketing promotion. Car Town allowed players to view the trailer for the film in an REG-branded, in-game drive-in theater. The game also featured missions and locations based on the plot of the film, and allowing players to join forces with Fast & Furious 6 characters. REG offered players of Car Town the ability to purchase tickets in-game via Fandango for films at REG theaters. By buying these tickets in-game, players were given promotional codes which in turn allowed them to unlock a virtual 2013 Dodge Charger SRT8.[50]

Sequel

 

 

On April 4, 2013, Lin announced that he would not return to direct a Fast & Furious 7, as the studio wanted to produce the film on an accelerated schedule for release in summer 2014 which would have required Lin to begin pre-production on the sequel while performing post-production on Fast & Furious 6 which he considered would affect the quality of the final product. Despite the usual two to three year gap between the previous installments, Universal chose to pursue a sequel quicker due to having fewer reliable franchises than its competitor studios.[60] Also in April,James Wan was announced as the sequel’s director, with Moritz returning to produce and Morgan returning to write the script, his fifth in the series. Diesel and Walker were also confirmed to return to star.[61] Also in April, Johnson said that if Universal pursued the accelerated development of a seventh film, he would be unable to participate due to scheduling conflicts with filming onHercules.[62] On April 16, 2013, Diesel announced that the sequel would be released on July 11, 2014, with production scheduled to begin in August 2013.[54]
