First plot synopsis for Fast & Furious 6

While we've received a steady drip feed of new images from upcoming action sequel Fast & Furious 6 , we've not learned much in the way of plot details. However, that's all changed thanks to the arrival of a new plot synopsis.

The film follows on from the events of Fast Five , although this time Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson will be on the same team. That's a whole lot of muscle right there…

Check out the new synopsis below:

Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (Paul Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin’s empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.

Meanwhile, Hobbs (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).

The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.

OTT action ahoy then! Directed by Justin Lin and co-starring Jordana Brewster, Gina Carano and Tyrese Gibson, Fast & Furious 6 will open in the UK on 24 May 2013.
