Rev your engines, folks, because in case you forgot, Vin Diesel and his buddies are bringing back the smell of exhaust and Axe body spray to theaters with “Fast & Furious 6.” And the movie that’s currently in production has added a young fresh face to kick some ass alongside the boys.
Model Clara Paget gets what will likely be her first substantial film role — after appearances in “Johnny English Reborn” and “St. Trinian’s II: The Legend Of Fritton’s Gold” — taking the sidekick role of Vegh, “a gun-slinging action woman.” And that’s about all we know, which is no surprise, considering the exact plot details have pretty much been kept under lock and key. But if anything, ‘Furious 6’ will have a number of women doling out the action right alongside the guys, including Michelle Rodriguez, “Haywire” star Gina Carano and the franchise regular Jordana Brewster. But what we do know is that Luke Evans is the villain and this latest entry in the ‘Furious’ saga will find Dominic and the boys gallavanting around Europe. And it seems they will be hitting some pretty key landmarks.
Baz Bamigboye reveals that one particular sequence will feature an oil tanker exploding in Piccadilly Circus in London — but since Justin Lin couldn’t get the clearance to actually shoot there, the production team has built a replica at a studio facility in Surrey where they can blow shit up with impunity. “Fast & Furious 6” tanks up on May 24, 2013.
