"Fast Five" is the fifth film in the popular "Fast and the Furious" action franchise, and the first one to reunite all the stars of the previous chapters.

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of returning all-stars from every chapter of the explosive franchise built on speed in "Fast Five." Newly joined by Dwayne Johnson, they take the series that hooked the world on adrenaline and amp up the action and spectacle on a global scale.

In "Fast Five," former cop Brian O'Connor (Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Diesel) in a very unfamiliar place: the opposite side of the law in exotic Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Elsa Patacky joins Johnson and returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon, and Don OMar in an ultimate high-stakes heist.

The series that first captivated audiences a decade ago with its crew of underground Los Angeles street racers bound by a code of family and loyalty takes its die-hard audience on the biggest thrill ride to date. After blasting through heart-stopping runs in Miami's race circuit, exposing the insular underworld of Tokyo drifting, and rocketing through tunnels hidden underneath the U.S. / Mexico border, our heroes are back in action.

Returning to this installment is a talented production crew of series favorites, led by director and executive producer Justin Lin, and producer Neal H. Moritz and Michael Fottrell. Chris Morgan wrote the screenplay, adapted from characters created by Gary Scott Thompson.

Also rejoining the series is an accomplished behind-the-scenes team, including cinematographer Stephen F. Windon; editors Christian Wagner, Kelly Matsumoto, and Fred Raskin; costume designer Sanja Milkovic Hays, composer Brian Tyler, and executive producers Amanda Lewis and Samantha Vincent. The production designer is Peter Wenham.
