Johnson went on to discuss what he had to do to get in role: "Fast Five I had put on a good amount of weight. Muscle - not an ice-cream and cookies diet! So the goal for this one was to come in in great shape. I wanted to come in and frankly dominate the movie. That's my aim." The last installment made $626 million at the box office and the fifth sequel is likely to beat that. Fast and Furious 6 will be the last film in the franchise to be directed by Justin Lin, director of the last three films, who has left the directors chair for Saw director, James Wan. The jury is still out on whether Wan can take on a blockbuster of this magnitude, with massive action set pieces but until we can find that out, just enjoy Lin's last time in the driving seat. Fast and Furious 6 is released in cinemas today.
