London was given the Fast and Furious treatment on Tuesday night - as the sixth film in the hit franchise launched in the British capital. Actor and producer Vin Diesel led the all-star cast at the world premiere in Leicester Square. Speeding along the blue carpet, he signed autographs and revealed it's not just action movies he's into: SOUNDBITE (English) actor Vin Diesel, saying: ''I would love to do musicals, I am dying to do musicals.'' Fair enough. Looking stunning in a floor length red dress - Michelle Rodriguez added some glamour to the testosterone on display. Known for playing tough feisty roles she was full of praise for her male co-stars: SOUNDBITE: (English) actress Michelle Rodriguez, saying: ''I've got to say you know The Rock - Dwayne he's amazing, he's pretty sick with it. You know, Vin he never gives up he like he really wants top give his all every time he does a scene and I gotta give my big ups to Paul who hurt it, he got himself a massive injury on his ACL and came back three days later doing squats and and I am like you frickin' gangster that's so hardcore!'' Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson all return to play the good guys - on a mission to defeat a new super nasty bad guy: Full of stunts, Walker joked about the rivalry between the muscly cast: SOUNDBITE (English) actor, Paul Walker saying: ''It's always competitive and the best part is that the competitive drive most of the time is just it goes unsaid, you can feel you know it's like there's banter and we talk it and you speak it and you can feel it cos it's coming directly at you and and they want you to hear it.'' Fast and Furious 6 hits UK cinemas on May 17, with the North American release following on May 24 .... and if that wasn't enough to keep all petrol-heads happy, number 7 is already in pre-production. Oh and don't forget we might also have Vin's singing career to look forward to! SOUNDBITE (English) Vin Diesel, saying: ''I want to sing, I want to sing.''
