Fast Five is a 2011 American heist action film directed by Justin Lin and written by Chris Morgan. A sequel to 2009's Fast & Furious, it is the fifth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise and stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Matt Schulze, Sung Kang, Dwayne Johnson and Joaquim de Almeida. Fast Five follows Dominic Toretto, Brian O'Conner and Mia Toretto as they plan a heist to steal $100 million from corrupt businessman Hernan Reyes while being pursued for arrest by U.S. Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs. While developing Fast Five, Universal Studios deliberately departed from the street racing theme prevalent in previous films in the series, to transform the franchise into a heist action series involving cars. By doing so, they hoped to attract wider audiences that might otherwise be put off by a heavy emphasis on cars and car culture.
