We may not have an official title for Universal Pictures’ sixth Fast and Furious film but we do now at least have an official synopsis for the film.

The new installment in the franchise will see Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) trying to stop an organisation of lethal mercenary drivers led by an unamed villain (Luke Evans) and his second in command, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). Hobbs then recruits Dom (Vin Diesel) and his team into helping him take down the bad guys in excahnge for full pardons for all past crimes.

Also returning for the film are, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky, and newcomer to the series, MMA star Gina Carano.

This is the official synopsis from Universal Pictures:

Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian’s (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 (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (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.

Directed by series regular Justin Lin, Fast and Furious 6 is out on May 24th, with a trailer expected to air this weekend during the Superbowl.
