The production for action movies is intense.
Said to be the hardest to do because of the relentless amount of takes it requires to get a shot just right. That means long days and nights and a lot of costs to be added in order to get a take right.
One of the stars of the upcoming film isn't just Paul Walker, it's the BMW M5. Not the all-new F10 but the E60 with that exotic-sounding V10 motor. To prep for the film, according to sources 12 of them were used. Here's where things get interesting: not all of them were real M5s. In fact, some of them with 530i and 530ds that were converted to look like the real deal.
The gentleman responsible for the cars on screen, Dennis McCarthy, said he thinks "maybe one survived," and that "this new film might break records for car carnage."
While I am not a Fast and Furious fan, maybe this one will be worth a peek.
Take a look at the movie's featurette below...
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in Fast & Furious 6. Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.
Since Dom (Diesel) and Brian's (Walker) Rio heist toppled a kingpin's empire and left their crew with $100 million, our heroes have scattered across the globe. But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete.
Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment? Full pardons for all of them so they can return home and make their families whole again.
Building on the worldwide blockbuster success of Fast Five and taking the action, stunts and narrative to even greater heights, Fast & Furious 6 sees director Justin Lin back behind the camera for the fourth time. He is supported by longtime producers Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel, who welcome producer Clayton Townsend back to the series.
