The Raid star and British model joining fellow franchise newcomers Gina Carano and Luke Evans.



Fast and Furious 6 has gained a couple of new faces.

Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster are already returning for Justin Lin's follow-up to smash hit Fast Five, with Gina Carano (Haywire) and Luke Evans (Immortals) the previously announced newbies to the franchise.

Indonesian martial artist Joe Taslim got his big break in Gareth Evans' hit action flick The Raid. Variety report the actor will now play Jah, a merciless villain who uses his martial arts and parkour skills to fight our protagonists.

The Daily Mail reveal British model Clara Paget has been cast in a sidekick role, as a "gun-slinging action woman" called as Vegh. Paget's previous film experience has been bit parts in the likes of Johnny English Reborn, One Day and St Trinian's 2.

The plot is being kept secret, but we know the thieves will be heading to Europe, with one action sequence set in Piccadilly Circus. Diesel's gang are set to go up against Evans' team for the same job.

The Fast and the Furious 6 (not the actual title) is shooting now for release on 24th May 2013.
