According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lucas Black leads the cast for The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, the third installment of the Universal Pictures franchise being directed by Justin Lin and produced by Neal Moritz.

Also cast are Bow Wow, Brian Tee and Nikki Griffin, as well as Sung Kang (Antwone Fisher), Jason Tobin (Better Luck Tomorrow) and newcomer Nathalie Kelly.

Tokyo Drift is set in the underground world of Japanese drift racing, where rear-wheel cars speed into turns and drift sideways for as long as possible. The story revolves around outsider (Black) who, to avoid jailtime, is sent out of the country to live with his military father in a cramped apartment in a low-rent section of Tokyo. When he loses a race to a driver with ties to the yakuza, he has to pay off his debt by going deep into the Tokyo underworld.
