From illegal underground street racing in Los Angeles and money laundering in Miami to drifts on customized rides across perilous Tokyo courses, one series built on speed has become a global sensation since its origins more than nine years ago. Now, in the next chapter, the four original characters reunite for the first time and come home to where it all began.
VIN DIESEL (The Pacifier, xXx) and PAUL WALKER (Flags of Our Fathers, Eight Below) reteam for the ultimate chapter of the adrenaline-fueled franchise—Fast & Furious. Heading back to the streets of L.A., they rejoin MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ (Lost, Resident Evil) and JORDANA BREWSTER (Chuck, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) to blast muscle, tuner and exotic cars along the crowded streets of the city and across international lines in a high-octane action-thriller from director JUSTIN LIN (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Better Luck Tomorrow).
It’s been eight years since ex-con Dominic Toretto (Diesel) drove across the Mexican border, committing himself to a fugitive existence. Now, holed up in a beach shack in the Dominican Republic, and living on the run with the sole remnant of his past, Letty (Rodriguez), he tries to piece together a new life. But he knows the authorities are always just steps behind him.
When a tragic death of someone he loves brings him back to L.A., Dom reignites his feud with agent Brian O’Conner (Walker). As they are forced to confront a shared enemy, a sociopathic drug kingpin who is flooding the U.S. with lethal product, Dom and Brian must give in to an uncertain new trust if they hope to outmaneuver him and avenge the tragedy that he caused their small de facto family to endure.
Infiltrating the underground network means earning a spot on a heist squad that moves high-grade heroin across the border from Mexico through almost unnavigable tunnels carved into the caves. Two lieutenants in the cartel, Campos (JOHN ORTIZ, American Gangster, Miami Vice) and Fenix (LAZ ALONSO, Jarhead, Stomp the Yard), are the only ones who can provide the access Dom and Brian need and the answers they’re after.
As Dom, his sister Mia (Brewster) and Brian rediscover the family bond that was torn apart so long ago, the unlikely allies again find themselves pitted against one another in a race that takes them to the
brink. Now, from convoy heists on the mountainous countryside of the Dominican Republic to precision tunnel crawls across the floor of the Mexican desert, two men will find the best way to get revenge: Push the limits of what’s possible behind the wheel.
Returning to this chapter is a talented production crew of series favorites led by director Lin and producers NEAL H. MORITZ (The Fast and theFurious series, I Am Legend, xXx), Vin Diesel and MICHAEL FOTTRELL (Live Free or Die Hard, 2 Fast 2 Furious). CHRIS MORGAN (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Wanted) writes from characters based on the work of GARY SCOTT THOMPSON (The Fast and the Furious, television’s Las Vegas).
Also rejoining the series is an accomplished behind-the-scenes team, including production designer IDA RANDOM (The Fast and the Furious:Tokyo Drift, Suspect Zero), composer BRIAN TYLER (The Fast and the Furious series, Rambo), costume designer SANJA MILKOVIC HAYS (The Fast and the Furious series, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor) and executive producer AMANDA LEWIS (The Fast and the Furious: TokyoDrift, Made of Honor).
Cinematographer AMIR MOKRI (NationalTreasure: Book of Secrets, Bad Boys II) joins Lin’s group for Fast & Furious, along with editors CHRISTIAN WAGNER (Mission: Impossible II, Die Another Day) and FRED RASKIN (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift). SAMANTHA VINCENT serves as an executive producer.
