“The Fast & The Furious 5”

The adrenaline-pumping The Fast & The Furious franchise is revving its engine for a fifth installment, Variety said Thursday.

Universal has greenlit the project — tentatively-titled Fast Five — will find the Dom Toretto and Brian O’Conner on the run from the law. The feature is expected to reunite director Justin Liu and series stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker — who withdrew from the franchise in the third film Tokyo Drift but returned for 2009’s Fast & Furious. Bringing in a global total of over $350 million, Fast & Furious was one of Universal’s highest-grossing films of the year.

Fast Five will race into theaters next year.
