'Fast and Furious' 6 scheduled for Memorial Day, 2013
It looks like 2012 Hollywood Walk of Fame inductee Vin Diesel will have another Fast and Furious installment to add to his increasingly diverse resume. Universal Pictures has announced that Diesel and his Furious friends will return to theaters for the 2013 Memorial Day holiday weekend, after this spring’s Fast Five posted the biggest opening weekend in the studio’s history. Fast and Furious 6, which the studio says in a release will contain the most dangerous adventures yet for our speed-racing heroes, will be produced by Neal H. Moritz and Diesel and directed by Justin Lin.
Universal also announced the release date for the supernatural comedy R.I.P.D., starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds as two zombie cops dispatched by the R.I.P.D. (Rest In Peace Department) to maintain law and order in a world threatened by pesky creatures who refuse to move on to the afterlife. RED‘s Robert Schwentke has signed on to direct the film, which is set to debut on June 28, 2013.
