There was a period back aways when I thought I’d never come back and revisit. But I’m a little older and a little wiser and it’s been fun to be a part of something that spans ten years. We’re having a good time. It feels more balanced now than ever before.
USA Today has scored the first official image of the upcoming sequel Fast Five, the fifth movie in the Fast and the Furious franchise. The photo depicts a stare-down between franchise star Vin Diesel and newcomer Dwayne "Not the Rock Anymore" Johnson, who joins the sequel as Luke Hobbs, a federal agent on the trail of Diesel and Paul Walker, after 2009's Fast and Furious ended with the duo on the run from the law.
Fast Five director Justin Lin, who also directed Fast and Furious and 2006's Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift, told the publication that casting Johnson gave a boost to the sequel.
If you're going to do a Fast and Furious movie, you've got to go bigger each time. People thought it would be impossible to get Dwayne. But he didn't show up looking to cash a paycheck. That's pretty amazing, for a star like him to join the fifth part of a franchise. That says a lot about him and the fans.
Johnson however, admitted he joined the sequel to continue the work he began in the revenge movie Faster. "One of the things I've always loved about the franchise — the reason I think it's been so successful over the years — is that they never stop trying to up the action," said Johnson.
Fast Five opens April 29, 2011. Returning favorites Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Sung Kang, and Gal Gadot co-star in a script from Wanted screenwriter Chris Morgan. Posted 12.13.10 by Ryan
Some may argue that all Fast and the Furious movies are the same, focusing solely on cars, girls, and more cars, but closer inspection reveals some slight differences. The first, 2001's The Fast and the Furious, saw Paul Walker as an undercover cop who infiltrates the L.A. street racing world and meets anti-hero Vin Diesel, forging a partnership that ended for the sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, which saw Walker and Tyrese Gibson investigating a money launderer in Miami. Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift took the action to Japan, where Lucas Black filled in for Walker and Diesel in a storyline that was ignored for the 2009 sequel, Fast and Furious, which reunited Walker and Diesel in Los Angeles and reignited the franchise.

Tyrese Gibson isn't the only actor in Hollywood to fall in love with Twitter, but he may have fallen the hardest.

Russel Mulcahy's 1986 film Highlander told an epic tale of immortals fighting one another through the ages to win the prize of ultimate knowledge that came from being the "only one," so it's fitting that the franchise that everyone thought was dead turns out not to be.
The original film earned actor Christopher Lambert a cult following for his portrayal of Connor "The Highlander" MacLeod, and spawned four theatrical sequels, a TV series, multiple comic books, and, most recently, an animated feature.
Summit Entertainment has announced that it will resurrect the Highlander franchise, with the producer-director team behind Fast & Furious, Neil H. Moritz and Justin Lin. Summit has also announced that it has hired Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, the writing team behind Iron Man, to pen the script. Other than a brief synopsis describing "an immortal Scottish swordsman" and his battle against a "brutal barbarian, who lusts for the fabled Prize," no other details have been released. The plot resembles the plot of the original, so it appears that this Highlander film will be a remake, rather than a sequel. Posted 09.23.09 by BrentJS
