The Raid: Redemption star Joe Taslim has joined the cast of The Fast and the Furious 6 for Universal Pictures and director Justin Lin.

The Indonesian actor will portray a villain named Jah, who uses his martial arts and parkour skills to do battle with Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto and Paul Walker's Brian O'Conner.

Franchise alums Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, and Dwayne Johnson are returning, along with new cast members Gina Carano (Haywire) and Luke Evans (Immortals).

Justin Lin is directing from a screenplay by Chris Morgan (Fast Five, Fast & Furious). No story details have been confirmed, although sources indicate the plot will revolve around Dominic's crew heading to Europe to pull off a job that Luke Evans' villainous character already has staked out. It isn't known when production will begin.

    I think this will be good! This series is a shining example of a franchise that almost died, that they brilliantly were able to save! Proves these writers know what they are doing!

    i love this franchise. it is one of the few that has no limits, can expand/contract as it wants and can be local or global. F5 was awesome and showed the star and staying power of this franchise so long as there is vision. especially considering how they took a spinoff (Tokyo Drift) and incorporated in into the mainstream franchise. looking fwd to F6.

    @cupid Well, if no mention or cameo, we can assume he's dead or not included. Hans is the only character keeping the continuity

    @bawnian-dexeus I know that, but is that the only reason why it should be set after TD?, because if it is set before TD but they left him out, what would be so different if it were to be set after TD?

    @cupid If Hans is alive, it's still before TD
