We all know that the next sequel in the FAST & THE FURIOUS franchise, FAST FIVE, is racing towards the silver screen, but little has been known as to what the plot would entail. Whether we needed it or not, a plot synopsis has been released for the upcoming film.

You can check out the synopsis after the break.

"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. In this installment, former cop Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) partners with ex-con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) on the opposite side of the law. Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites Jordana Brewster, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar for this ultimate high-stakes race.

Since Brian and Mia Toretto (Brewster) broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail.

Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey…before someone else runs them down first."

They really weren't messing around with this synopsis, and might be one of the longest I've seen for a film that isn't really known for the strength of its plotlines. Regardless, this synopsis is very likely to get the attention of any fans of the franchise.

It's kind of interesting to see them bringing back a lot of characters from the second film, as it usually isn't looked at in the brightest of lights. It will be interesting to see how they work these characters into the more direct and recent FAST canon.
