London's Burning: The Rock films scenes for Fast 6 on a battered and scorched Lambeth Bridge
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was hard at work filming on the The Fast and the Furious 6 in London today... and he seemed to be at the centre of some serious destruction on Lambeth Bridge.
It's tantalising stuff, as the high octane illegal-road-race franchise has proved so popular that it's reached this high number in the league sequels (it is rare to go past three).
The heart and soul: The Fast and Furious only really took off after The Rock was cast for the third adventure
It's all down to director Justin Lin who introduced Johnson in his third film of the series, as a wise-cracking policeman on the trail of fugitive racers Vin Diesel and Paul Walker.
His wit was evident today as he smiled and joked amidst the faux destruction of a central London bridge, wearing an incredibly tight black shirt.
Johnson's character, Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs, may be joining forces with Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Conner this time around, to bring down the film's villain, played by Luke Evans.
Johnson is also keeping his Twitter fans amused with updates like this: 'On set. FAST 6. Take 1: Rock throws man into table so hard entire ceiling crashes down. #MyBad.'
Gina Carano, Clara Paget, 'The Raid' star Joe Taslim and the Michelle Rodriguez join Diesel, Walker, Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris all star in the film, which arrives theatres on May 24th, 2013.
Filming locations also include the Canary Islands and Glasgow, Scotland.
And it's clear the makers behind the hugely popular franchise don't plan on leaving the series at number six, with an evolution planned to take it further.
It's been confirmed that Universal intend to transform the series from street-racing action into a series of heist films with car chases, like The Italian Job.
Universal chairman Adam Fogelson said: 'The question putting Fast Five and Fast Six together for us was: Can we take it out of being a pure car culture movie and into being a true action franchise in the spirit of those great heist films made 10 or 15 years ago?'
