Fast Six will be starting its engine soon, with Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson set to return under Justin Lin‘s direction. We recently reported that Jason Statham won’t be joining them for the sequel, but now it looks like Universal wants Haywire star Gina Carano for the film.
CHUD is reporting that Carano is now in talks to star in the film, which would make my day! Carano was fantastic earlier this year in Steven Soderbergh‘s spy-thriller Haywire and she’d fit in perfectly next to the likes of Johnson and Diesel.
I especially like this casting decision because she’s both sexy and tough. She could be more than just eye candy. I’d love to see her go toe-to-toe with Walker or something, because she’d probably beat the piss out of him.
The Fast and the Furious 6 will be racing into theaters on May 24th. 2013.
