Confirming rumors from last week, Luke Evans has been cast as the villain in The Fast and The Furious 6, a.k.a. Fast 6.
Heat Vision has the report on the Hobbit and Immortals actor, who word has it is taking the role that was originally turned down by Jason Statham. He’ll be joining Paul Walker and Vin Diesel as well as Dwayne Johnson, whose character is on a mission to capture the two franchise mainstays. Gina Carano joins the series this time out as part of Johnson’s team.
Plot details are scarce on the film, though it will reportedly be set in Europe and is shooting for a May 2013 release.
