Vin Diesel - Fast and Furious 6 is like a Bond film

'Fast and Furious 6' is like a Bond movie.

The latest instalment of the high-octane car racing franchise will be more similar in tone to a James Bond movie as the film moves away from heists and concentrates on the lead characters - including Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto and Paul Walker's Brian O'Conner - thwarting a villainous rival.

Director Justin Lin said: ''I feel like we're going into Bond territory. We have an antagonist for the first time. The dude's formidable. Basically, it's 'Heat' on steroids.''

Meanwhile, Sung Kang - who plays Han Seoul-Oh - added: ''This story has nothing to do with money. We got $10 million each last time, how much do we need? So it's another heist movie, but our loot's a family member.''

The film will reportedly see the gang try to rescue Michelle Rodriguez's Letty Ortiz, who was believed to have died in the fourth film in the series, but is now aligned with villain Owen Shaw, played by Luke Evans. With the stakes raised, the film's star and producer Vin Diesel imagines the tone being similar to Francis Ford Coppola's 'The Godfather' trilogy.

He added to Empire magazine: ''We're dealing with a character that's lost their memory.

''When it comes down to it, it's a family saga. I've always said we should approach it in a Francis Ford Coppola kind of way.''
