Fast and Furious 6 director Justin Lin has said that the movie is more like a James Bond film.

The 43-year-old star revealed that 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.

Speaking to Empire magazine, 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 the part of Han Seoul-Oh, pitched in: ''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.''

Fast & Furious 6 hits cinemas on 24 May 2013.
