Raid Star Joe Taslim Joins Fast Six
From close quarters to quarter miles...

Raid Star Joe Taslim Joins Fast Six

Director Justin Lin and his Fast And Furious casting team are continuing to sweep the world for interesting performers and have been cherry picking people from all sorts of movies. The latest addition is Indonesia’s Joe Taslim, who might be more than a little familiar to those of you who thrilled to the kick-ass antics of The Raid earlier in the year.

Taslim will play a villain named Jah in Fast Six (or whatever it ends up being called), a cold-blooded killer who employs both martial arts manoeuvres and some serious parkour abilities to battle Vin Diesel and co. Sounds like a good choice to us!

As well as Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez and Dwayne Johnson are all returning for this outing, which also adds franchise newcomers Gina Carano and Luke Evans.

Universal is keeping the plot a secret for now, but apparently Diesel’s usual gang of thieving / driving types will go up against Evans’ squad when they both target the same job.

Lin is cranking the cameras now and the movie will screech into cinemas on May 24 next year. If it's even half as demented as Fast Five, we will be there with bells on.
