Universal Pictures recently announced that the fifth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise Fast Five is going to cruise into theaters on June 10, 2011. Director Justin Lin, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are all coming back for this film where Dom (Diesel) and Brian (Walker) are on the run from people that wish to see them behind bars. Chris Morgan is writing the screenplay.
MacGruber was initially slated to open on April 23. Will Forte's comic action hero will now grace screens on May 21. It is going to open against Shrek Forever After. MacGruber is directed by Jorma Taccone and stars Forte, Ryan Phillippe, Kristen Wiig, Val Kilmer, Powers Boothe and Maya Rudolph.
Only one American hero has earned the rank of Green Beret, Navy SEAL and Army Ranger. Just one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts, 3 Congressional Medals of Honor and 7 presidential medals of bravery. And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In 2010, Will Forte brings Saturday Night Live's clueless soldier of fortune to the big screen in the action comedy MacGruber.
