We were stunned by how much we enjoyed "Fast Five," a bit embarrassed even. So the massive franchsie can even entertain effette snobs like us, there's no reason to not roll out a sixth installment, right?
So the arrival of the sequel that was teased at the end of the credits to "Fast Five" was announced by Vin Diesel himself, who broke the news via Facebook:
For all of you that supported Fast Five, in a way no one could have predicted... seeing it multiple times to record breaking box office...
U.S. & World
To you, who stayed through credits, and from the moment you left the theater wanted to know, when Six was coming out... I have a date.
Memorial Day 2013!!! ...
You, officially, are the first to know.
P.s. This miraculously gives us more preproduction time than we had on Fast Five... I am happy and excited.
The Saga continues.
Good luck making a movie better than that last one, fellas.
