Jordana Brewster and Paul Walker return to "The Fast and The Furious" franchise with "Fast Five" where they reprise their roles of Brian O'Connor and Mia Toretto.

In the film Dwayne Johnson plays Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs who is on the heels of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), Brian and Mia in Rio de Janeiro.

"At the end of the day the fans decide whether or not we come back, " Walker told media outlets of the possibility of a six film at the "Fast Five" premiere in Rio De Janeiro on April 25. "We did the best job we could on this one. I'm proud of the work that we did and I hope the people appreciate it."

The last film called "Fast & Furious" earned $359 million worldwide, making it the highest grossing film in the franchise. According to a recent report by Deadline.com, Universal has tapped "Fast Five" writer Chris Morgan to write a sixth film.

The report also quotes Universal chairman Adam Fogelson explaining that "Fast Five" will transition the films from being about street racing culture to old fashioned heist movie.

Brewster seemed to indicate the shift in the films at the premiere saying. "I think the biggest pressure is to not disappoint the fans. We know that we can't give them the same old formula with just cars and Brian [Walker], me and Dom [Diesel], so we have to keep reinventing it. She added, "We do so with the addition of Dwayne Johnson and bringing back characters like Ludacris' character and Tyrese's character."
